Jon Stewart Quitting ‘The Daily Show’
He’s mocked the news long enough. The famed funnyman let it slip while taping tonight’s show that he will step aside sometime this year, ending 16 years as “the most trusted source in fake news.” Comedy Central confirmed the departure, while reassuring viewers the show will go on. Stewart skewered politicians and newsmakers with withering wit, and changed the way many Americans consume their news. While fans are already mourning, there may be some glee in the halls of Congress.
