Doctor and a lawyer turned radio talk-show hosts battle it out

On C-Span The Washington Journal show. It's dated (taped October 13, 2004), but still, it was keen to see Valley radio talkers Mike Newcomb and Tom Liddy on television together.

Watch the video.

According to the On Second Thought newsletter, Dr. Newcomb was flooded with emails in support after the show. I'd like to post a link, but it seems the webmaster there hasn't updated the site in eons.

You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show

Jon Stewart makes an appearance on CNN Crossfire and takes on bowtie boy, Tucker Carlson, and he actually called him a dick on national television.
STEWART: It's not honest. What you do is not honest. What you do is partisan hackery. And I will tell you why I know it.

CARLSON: You had John Kerry on your show and you sniff his throne and you're accusing us of partisan hackery?

STEWART: Absolutely.

CARLSON: You've got to be kidding me. He comes on and you...

STEWART: You're on CNN. The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls.


STEWART: What is wrong with you?

(APPLAUSE) CARLSON: Well, I'm just saying, there's no reason for you -- when you have this marvelous opportunity not to be the guy's butt boy, to go ahead and be his butt boy. Come on. It's embarrassing.

STEWART: I was absolutely his butt boy. I was so far -- you would not believe what he ate two weeks ago.


Stewart drops the comedy bit and tackles the political pundits.

According to some in attendance at the taping, some heated words were exchanged between commercial breaks and after the show between Stewart and hosts Carlson and Begala. Props to Stewart for calling out those CNN clowns…

MTV story on the brouhaha is titled Jon Stewart Bitchslaps CNN's 'Crossfire' Show.
