Jon Stewart schools Bernard Goldberg (video)

"Bernie appeared trying to pimp his new book '100 People Who Are Screwing Up America.' Stewart easily pointed out the meaninglessness of it (of course most are liberals in the book) by stating the obvious. If he was so serious in casting a magnifing glass on the problems of the country he should look to DC where the real power is." writes John, who has the whole video. "Goldberg's arguments were shallow and empty that fell on deaf ears because they make no sense and Stewart would have none of it. I could tell that Jon was an inch away of doing a 'Crossfire' on his ass." (Crooks and Liars)
