Hi there,

You trust Democracy Now! to bring you the news stories and global headlines you won't find anywhere else. But did you know that Democracy Now! never accepts money from advertisers, corporate underwriters or governments? This allows us to maintain the editorial independence you rely on—but it also means we need your help. If everyone seeing this gave just $4 a month, it would more than cover our expenses for the entire year—and today a donor will DOUBLE your first month. Please do your part. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!
-Amy Goodman

Billed as “the most trusted name in fake news,” Jon Stewart is stepping down as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. He has hosted the program since 1999. Watch his 2008 interview on Democracy Now! when Amy Goodman spoke to him at the Minneapolis airport ahead of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. We also featured Stewart in 2010 when he and Stephen Colbert, then-host of The Colbert Report, led the massive rally to “Restore Sanity and/or Fear.”

A recent Pew poll found 12 percent of participants said they got their political news from The Daily Show, compared to 12 percent who answered USA Today and 10 percent who answered The Wall Street Journal.
