“People go to media sources that affirm pre-existing opinions; rather than saying, ‘Let me listen to what this guy has to say.’ And it maybe that whatever the other side has to say is ridiculous. OK. Then dismiss it as such, but at least listen and give them some sense of respect, because to me if you don’t have honest debate—an honest exchange of ideas—you’re going nowhere in this country… You don’t solve big problems.” ~Juan Williams

Though I love Jon Stewart and what he brings to the table, I could not help but notice that he was rendered speechless when he realized that his relationship with Fox News did not measure up to his own ideological standard.
