I've learned more news from him than any major news network

Jon Stewart, beyond just being funny, also delivers an honest news broadcast.  He points out the problems with media coverage of many topics as well as saying "Hey, maybe we should pay attention to this?"  For example, he covered the Alberto Gonzales trial much more than any of the major networks who seemed rather content to drop it, as if it wasn't a major issue.  He's hilarious, and also very informative.  On CNN International they even have a weekly edition of the Daily Show on there!

Jon Stewart is witty and interesting. He is by all accounts the coolest thing to happen to political commentary well since I can remember. He is also thought provoking and makes you question the points of political pundits on both sides of the isle. A big Boola for The Daily Show.....

In 1999, The Daily Show got a new boss.  Jon Stewart.  For ten years now, Jon Stewart has been providing us with political satire and news.  While Jon Stewart is most certainly fake news, if you know the REAL news, Jon Stewart can be quite informative and entertaining.  Stewart uses comedy as commentary.  Stewart, like a pundit, doesn't make his views a secret, but unlike a pundit, Stewart doesn't play partisan games.  He is liberal.  But he isn't beyond criticizing …

Jon Stewart is a funny, funny man.  He's also incredibly eloquent, molds his face into fantastic expressions, and knows his politics.    Jon Stewart's strength is in his ability to be subtle.  This may seem like a strange statement, given the titles of many of The Daily Show's regular segments ("Clusterf&$k to the White House" is one example), but it is precisely Jon Stewart's subdued demeanor that allows him to get as far as he does on the show.  As opposed …

I'm ridiculous, funny, intelligent, motivated, and sometimes pretty dorky.    I try to live to the fullest as much as I can and enjoy life.    Indie music tends to rock my world.
About this celebrity

Wiki

Jonathan "Jon" Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz; November 28, 1962) is an American comedian, television host, and political satirist. He is best known as host of The Daily Show, a satirical news program airing on Comedy Central.

Stewart started as a stand-up comedian, but later branched out to television, hosting Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central. He went on to host his own show on MTV, called The Jon Stewart Show, and then hosted another show on MTV called You Wrote It, You Watch It. He has also had several film roles as an actor.

Stewart became the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central in early 1999. He is also a writer and co-producer of the show. After Stewart joined, The Daily Show steadily gained popularity and critical acclaim leading to his first Emmy Award in 2001. Stewart himself has also gained significant acclaim as a critic of the Bush administration and of personality-driven media shows, in particular the coverage of the U.S. news media networks CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC.[7] Critics say Stewart benefits from a double standard: he critiques other news shows from the safe, removed position of his "fake news" desk.[8][9] Stewart himself agrees, countering that neither his show nor his channel purports to be anything other than satire and comedy. In spite of its self-professed entertainment mandate, The Daily Show has been nominated for a number of news and journalism awards.[10]

Stewart hosted the 78th Academy ...
