Jon Stewart To Get Key To Bellingham, Washington

Posted: Updated:

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — The mayor of Bellingham says "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart is getting a key to the city. But he won't be traveling to the northwestern Washington city to accept it.

Mayor Dan Pike says representatives of Stewart's talent agency told him that Stewart appreciated the offer to come get the key but was too busy to accept. Pike made the offer after the mayor of Mount Vernon decided to give Fox News commentator Glenn Beck a key to that city.

Pike tells The Bellingham Herald that he's not disappointed by Stewart's decision because the point of the offer was to spark community discussion. He says he still plans to send Stewart a key to the city.
