Laughing All the Way to Congress
I don't get why there are people hating on Jon Stewart for pushing for the 9/11 Bill to be passed. Because the man has a show on Comedy Central and delivers the news in a different, less settle way, he is automatically written off as a bad representative for the subject? I would have to push to say that Jon Stewart is one of the more influential voices in politics seeing that a large part of the election of Obama was because the 18-25 year old demographic exercised their right to vote. Jon Stewart reports the news through a mean that the young adults of America can relate to. He doesn't have to get up to a podium and try to secure a few more votes. His intention is to deliver the news and if he may be perceived as blunt at times then that is because it is being said to an audience he is not targeting. That doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't know what he is talking about.
