Liar, Liar

I'm not sure what to make of Lawrence O'Donnell's appearance on Scarborough Country on Friday. While Swift Boat Vets spokesman John O'Neill was trying to talk, O'Donnell just kept repeating that O'Neill was lying and demanded documentary evidence with John Kerry's name or initials. Is this the lowest or highest form of a cheap cable shout show?

Stewart on Crossfire: Extended Cut

The Sunday Times carries a piece debating what Jon Stewart and The Daily Show should and shouldn't be or do. I'm still trying to figure out the point of it, but there was this bit:

"It was heartfelt," Mr. Carlson said this week in an interview. "He needed to do this."
