I prefer a touch of dark humor when I'm digesting tragedy. Is it me, or does CNN seem a little bit too excited when they have a cruise ship sinking or a plane crash to cover?
With access to more viewers than any press conference, Stewart has pushed his interview subjects -- then and now -- to not just bring their A game, but their A+ game. He does his homework, asks hard questions and often has a trick up his sleeve
A fan favorite to replace Stewart was Jessica Williams, a 25-year-old who had amassed a following from her powerful segment on catcalling. In addition to in-house candidates, fans were hoping for comedians such as Tina Fey or Amy Poehler to take over for Stewart.

Thank you to the brilliant and brave gut spiller and truth speaker, Lewis Black, who from his very proper podium in the cavernous atrium of the Indianapolis Central Library let loose to an assemblage of supporters gathered to honor the legacy of Kurt Vonnegut.
I have a feeling that Jon Stewart, with his ersatz Ph.D. from Comedy Central (and no student debt), might like to get on the field of real news and journalism, at least the televised kind, and do something to solve those problems, both the country's and the conflictinator's.
John Fugelsang should replace Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Now that Jon Stewart of The Daily Show is planning to leave, there is much speculation as to who will take his place. For my money, John Fugelsang stands out as the best choice.
