Jon Stewart was in the news again this week, when he testified in Congress about the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. Less than 24 hours later, the House Judiciary Committee passed a bill that continues funding compensation for the 9/11 First Responders for 70 years.
Unfortunately, the bill still has to get passed by the Senate, and its anyone's guess what McConnell will do. However, if he sits on the bill, it's likely that even the Republican Party will demand its passage. As I mentioned earlier today, the MOST important election in 2020 will be the Senate face in Kentucky (bye bye, Mitch).
It's worth noting that Jon Stewart was the most trusted man in America when he was the host of the Daily Show.
Two years later, that title passed to Bill Clinton, and last year, it passed to Anderson Cooper, who works for Trump's favorite network, CNN.
The Daily Show first aired on July 21, 1996, and Stewart took over as host on January 11, 2009. After he left in August of 2015, Trevor Noah took over. During its time on the air, the Daily Show has earned 24 Primetime Emmy Awards.
FOX , which premiered in February of 1996, has NEVER won an Emmy or a Dupont-Columbia Award or a Pulitzer.
Just saying ....
