Time Magazine Poll Finds Faux Newscaster Jon Stewart is America’s Most Trusted Newscaster, Post-Cronkite

Jul 23, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Jon Stewart, host of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central,  won a match-up against Brian Williams, Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson in a Time Magazine online poll for “America’s Most Trusted Newscaster” now that Walter Cronkite has died, the Huffington Post reports.

The joke, of course, is that Stewart is not a newscaster. At one point, when Cronkite was the anchor of the "CBS Evening News" he was named the most trusted man in America.

Stewart drew 44% of the votes; NBC’s Brian Williams was second with 29%. The poll drew 9,409 votes.
