Stewart used comedy to get young people interested in politics and the important issues of our world, today. He was the only news source, for me,
that I trusted to get global facts without the spin well before I became more interested in politics and started to do the research myself. John
Stewart is my Howard Beale (Somewhat).
Colbert was just as good, before... He is the perfect example of how fame and power corrupts one's true beliefs. He played the bad guy so well,
that his behavior let his audience know the real truth. He was once seen in my eyes as a man who knew the truth behind all the lies, and played the
lies in an extreme way to get out the truth out to his young audience.
That's all changed now, and I can't distinguish between his jokes and his personal belief.
I still rely on John Stewart and his band of senior analysts to make me laugh at our political world... opposed from crying.
