Jon Stewart said goodbye to The Daily Show last night in equal parts star-studded and quiet, personal fashion as former correspondents like Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver and Olivia Munn returned to pay their respects, while Bruce Springsteen closed out the slow with a performance — at Stewart’s request — of his 1999 song “The Land of Hopes and Dreams” and, for his fellow New Jerseyan, “Born to Run”.
Stewart is stepping down after sixteen years of hosting duties on The Daily Show. It's hard to pick just one favorite moment, but I want to do a #throwbackthursday to a segment that I think changed the public's view of Stewart from a late-night comedian to a legitimate political influencer on an entire generation.
This was featured in last night's show. Even after watching it a few times, I still don't know what to make of the government shutdown, and is Obama-Care good or bad.
You know the debate will rage on, but Jon Stewart's take on this mess is pretty entertaining...
