Today, the United States. This weekend, Washington, D.C.
In a poll of more than half a million readers, the online magazine AskMen.com has voted Jon Stewart the most influential man of 2010, it was announced Tuesday.
The distinction arrives only days ahead of this weekend’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” being organized by the Daily Show host and his Comedy Central colleague, Stephen Colbert, in the nation’s capital.
As for his influence, AskMen says, “Despite his innumerable enemies, Stewart’s acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason. Stewart’s show was once dubbed the ‘fake news,’ but these days it’s become our youths’ most trusted source of information, and its host the most trusted man in America.”
