Jon Stewart the New Cronkite?

one of my proffesors brought up an interesting point to the class the other day. he mentioned that news comedians Jon Stewart and even Stephan Colbert are becoming more respected by news consumers than more of the popular news identities. it is hard to imagine that Jon Stewart is more respected in the journalism realm than, say, Katie Couric.

this video is a good example of how Jon Stewart connects to his audiences.

what this tells me is that people want people with some personality to tell them their news and make it comical. i know that avoid the news some days because it can be depressing. this shows a shift, in my opinion about how media is being delivered to people.
