Americans Trust Jon Stewart Over “Serious” News Sources

Jon Stewart just announced he is stepping down as the host of the The Daily Show after 16 years. Satirical news shows have become hugely popular in the United States. Just look at the political impact of The Daily Show in recent years as well as John Oliver’s more recent success with Last Week Tonight.

Americans actually trust some of their beloved fake newsmen more than some of the nation’s more serious sources. Pew Research released a trust ranking of news organisations in the United States and the Daily Show is considered more trustworthy by the public than both Bloomberg and the Economist when it comes to political coverage.
