In the wake of Walter Cronkite's death there was a poll conducted about who the new "most trusted anchor in America" is. And in a shocking surprise result the winner in that poll is -- Jon Stewart. And by a landslide, too.
And you wonder why America is in the mess it's in? It's because more people trust an anchor of a fake newscast that delivers fake news every night!
No wonder there are people down in the USA who believe the moon landings and 9/11 were a hoax, then, if this is what they think.
Some might argue that Stewart's good showing is more due to the fact that cynical Americans trust no one these days, because of the mess on Wall Street and the rest of it. Well, I would have had more respect for the respondents if that's what they actually told the pollsters -- that they don't trust anyone, not even Jon Stewart!
But they didn't. They went and said they put their trust in a joke news anchor.
"More Americans trust Jon Stewart than any other news anchor!" What a joke. The people of the USA ought to be embarrassed.
