MEANWHILE LAST NIGHT ... on NIGHTLINE ... TED KOPPEL (briefly) discussed BULLSHIT with JON STEWART

This is the most illuminating commentary on journalism you will ever hear on TV so pay attention {smile/ no joke}:

(paraphrased only slighly)

TED KOPPEL (to Jon Stewart): YOU get to say things are B.S. (yada) with humor.... I can't do that.

JON STEWART: ... YOU can do it without the humor ... (yada yada) CREDIBILITY

TED KOPPEL: Out of time. (Shoos Stewart away.)
