Say it ain't so, Jon!
From USA Today:
Another late-night host is calling it quits: Jon Stewart told his audience Tuesday that he'll step down from Comedy Central's The Daily Show by the end of this year, when his contract expires.
Stewart had been hinting at his restlessness while promoting Rosewater, his directorial debut, last fall, telling NPR he'd never find another job he's as well suited for. "That being said, I think there are moments when you realize that that's not enough anymore, or maybe it's time for some discomfort."
With Stephen Colbert gone, too, who's going to skewer Fox News the way they deserve? Certainly not the rest of the so-called liberal media.
Russel Brand, whether you like him or not, can skewer these frauds with intellect and facts.
Just as BOR no doubt let out a big whoop when Colbert announced that he was leaving his show and his BOR based persona, I can imagine the sighs of relief at FOX “news” especially among those who really seemed to despise Stewart (Daddy Douchey, Tucker Carlson, etc.). Hopefully Comedy Central will find some way to keep this genre of show going because someone with a sense of humor, intelligent wit and biting sarcasm needs to be there to call out the bullsh!tters, the haters and hypocrites.
