What Jon Stewart says is significant because he is watched by millions of people who don’t watch a regular news show. These viewers tend to be liberal, and ignorant of their history. He influences people’s world view and the knowledge these viewers think they have of history.
I agree, that Jon Stewart is a (fill in the blank). But he has a platform, he delivers the only news that many people get, and he influences these liberal leaning kids who watch it.
Agree. A lot of kids listen to Jon Stewart. Sadly, they tend to treat a lot of the gibberish that comes out of his mouth as wisdom. To their way of thinking, if it makes them laugh, it must be smart.

While I agree with what you say, there's not a damn thing we can do about it. Unless or until his audience finds other sources of accurate information, there's not much we can do to counter this. They have to want to seek out correct information. And as was evidence by what happened Nov. 4th, I'm doubtful they'll even try.
