Tucker Carlson on Jon Stewart: "A partisan demagogue"

Upon “Crossfire’s” cancelation, network president Jon Klein noted the Stewart critique, telling the Washington Post that “he made a good point about the noise level of these types of shows, which does nothing to illuminate the issues of the day.”

Carlson, reached Friday, described Stewart as “a partisan demagogue.”

“Jim Cramer may be sweaty and pathetic—he certainly was last night—but he’s not responsible for the current recession,” Carlson told POLITICO. “His real sin was attacking Obama’s economic policies. If he hadn’t done that, Stewart never would have gone after him. Stewart’s doing Obama’s bidding. It’s that simple.”

Begala said that “as an Overpaid TV Guy myself, I hate to see the Overpaid TV Community ripped apart in this time of crisis.”
