We've received a lot of mail questioning why Stewart didn't do it on all the other shows that he has been a guest on.
My guess would be that he had to have the forum where both parties were represented so it didn't look like a partisan attack and that it would be live. Stewart did appear on Hannity and Colmes and The O'Reilly Factor, but do you think Roger Ailes would have let that run? I don' t think so. Also, he needed more time than is usually afforded guests on most talk shows to make his point. Paul Begala was smart and pretty much let Stewart do his thing while Tucker Carlson kept digging himself deeper. View the show here
