“Everyone’s On The Field”

Jay Rosen takes to YouTube for a commentary on the Rachel Maddow interview with Jon Stewart, as Stewart tries to engage the critics of his Rally For Sanity event.  Rosen says Stewart is wrong in trying to make a distinction  between what he does as a comedian and  what Maddow does as a journalist.  Stewart told Maddow that she was really in the game of the nation’s political discourse while he, Stewart, was off on the sidelines throwing stuff at the players on the field.  No, Rosen says.  Nowadays, with new media tools at all of our fingertips, “everyone’s on the field.”
