"Jon Stewart is about the only person on TV who didn't slam the health summit yesterday," writes Mary Papenfuss at Newser. That may be true--but she didn't say anything about radio. On television, Jon Stewart was rare for insisting "some really substantive points" were made at the summit. On radio, Rush Limbaugh expressed even more positive feelings about the event.
Of course, Limbaugh didn't have the same takeaway as Stewart. He announced to listeners that he was "wrong when [he] advised the Republicans to skip this summit" because they made solid points and had a "pretty good strategy."
So perhaps there's a better question than Papenfuss's. She asks, "since when is [Jon Stewart] less cynical than the networks?" One might ask, Since when do Jon Stewart and Rush Limbaugh agree on anything?
