CNN/U.S. President Jonathan Klein sided Wednesday with comedian Jon Stewart, who used a "Crossfire" appearance last fall to rip the program as so much hackery.
Wow, really? And a comedian had to be the one to point this out to you?
"I think he made a good point about the noise level of these types of shows, which does nothing to illuminate the issues of the day," Klein said. Viewers need useful information in a dangerous world, he said, "and a bunch of guys screaming at each other simply doesn't accomplish that."
[Conservative co-host] Carlson praised the show but said that he felt constrained by its partisan format.
Whoah. I never watched the show, except for the Jon Stewart episode. Did Carlson publicly come out against the Iraq war? Anyone? Full story here.
"When my opinions diverged from those of the White House it was difficult" to conduct the expected debate, "particularly when I opposed the Iraq war," he said.
