More about Stewart vs Crossfire

Rick Ellis writes a good piece about the Daily Show, Jon Stewart, Crossfire and Novaks reactions after the fact. I think Rick is dead on when he writes You can see just one small indication of the problems facing old media by looking at the aftermath of Stewart’s “Crossfire” appearance.

But he implicitly raises the issue that much of what we’ve seen elsewhere during this war, often under the label of “news,” has been just as subjectively edited. Perhaps the most damning sequence in “Fahrenheit 9/11” is the one showing American troops as they ridicule hooded detainees in

Banned on CBS: MoveOn’s ‘Child’s pay’.

The Bush In 30 Seconds ad contest held earlier this month resulted in the winning 30 second entry Child’s pay that was supposed to be aired during the Super Bowl today. It seems the Child’s pay ad from MoveOn was too much for CBS, and they claim they won’t run it because they don’t run “issue ads”. Now, it seems CBS has run issue ads before: DaveNet : Is CBS Lying?. MoveOn has posted the following information about the CBS refusal to run the ad: CBS is refusing to run
