"Conservative radio host Mark Levin went on a rant today against Jon Stewart over a bit he did Monday night over the current crisis in Israel, a bit that really offended Levin and led him to call Stewart a "knee-jerk idiot" (as well as questioning Stewart changing his last name).
Levin said that Israel is doing whatever it can to limit civilian casualties and so he was offended at Stewart joking about how Gazans are being warned about bombings and how they have no place safe to escape to. Levin cried, "Have you f'ing seen Israel, you little twerp? Have you f'ing seen what surrounds Israel, you little twerp?""* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.
We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.
The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
