I would like to hug Jon Stewart...

for many reasons, not the least of which is because...

"CNN Will Cancel 'Crossfire' and Cut Ties to Commentator

Mr. Klein specifically cited the criticism that the comedian Jon Stewart leveled at "Crossfire" when he was a guest on the program during the presidential campaign. Mr. Stewart said that ranting partisan political shows on cable were "hurting America."
Mr. Klein said last night, "I agree wholeheartedly with Jon Stewart's overall premise." He said he believed that especially after the terror attacks on 9/11, viewers are interested in information, not opinion."

Hurrah for the president of CNN, Jonathan Klein, who plans to have his network to move "toward reporting the days events, not discussing them," - unless, of course, "the first batch of things we're trying to do don't turn out well."

Way to almost sound like a decent guy, Klein.
