In Jon Stewart we trust?

“The Daily Show,” according to an article by Michiko Kakutani, is now a genuine cultural and political force. The political and social satire show, which airs on Comedy Central, brings many controversial issues to surface in an effort to bring awareness to the public.
“‘The Daily Show’ is clearly impacting American dialogue” and “getting people to think critically about the public square,” Kakatuni writes.
Host and managing editor Jon Stewart has become a cultural icon and has gained the trust of many American citizens.

When Americans were asked in a 2007 poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press to name the journalist they most admired, Mr. Stewart, the fake news anchor, came in at No. 4, tied with the real news anchors Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw of NBC, Dan Rather of CBS and Anderson Cooper of CNN.
