TV worth TiVoing: While I have not blogged it, two of this weblog’s seven readers and I have exchanged e-mails during the weekend about how remarkable it was when Jon Stewart performed the first-ever live, televised castration when he appeared on Crossfire Friday.
Jeff Jarvis (a media critic from way-back) calls it, “the single best piece of media criticism (he’s) seen in years. And it’s all the better because it’s face-to-face.”
How good was it? (Or bad, depending on your opinion of Crossfire and its ilk.) Jon Stewart’s performance reminded me of one of those kung fu masters who can rip their opponent’s heart out and while it is still beating, they show it to their opponent right before he falls over, dead.
