Did Jon Stewart precipitate the demise of "Crossfire"?

A couple of months ago, Jon Stewart, star of Comedy Central's brilliant and hilarious "Daily Show," appeared on CNN's political commentary show, "Crossfire," and told hosts Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson that their show was "partisan hackery" that was "hurting America."

Now CNN President Jonathan Klein, who said he agrees with Jon Stewart's assessment of "Crossfire," is cancelling the show and steering CNN back toward actual news.

Thank you, Jon Stewart. We hope you've started a trend.
