Although the master of satirical news is stepping down, Jon Stewart's legacy will remain. While he isn't the most trusted name in news, more Americans trust his word over that of certain "serious" news sources such as The Economist and Bloomberg.

Come on now. In that list of "news" sources, the ones that you label with serious in quotes are The Economist and Bloomberg?

I suspect this says a lot more about Americans than about The Economist to be frank.

The issue isn't whether they are fair or not (although I do believe that The Economist is a rather reliable news source) but rather that each take themselves seriously. Unlike Stewart, who has always considered himself a comedian first.

I think the difference is their willingness to be honest. Stewart honestly states he is a comedian first. Hannity and Limbaugh, if honest, would state they were marketers first.

In fairness, as would CNN, ABC, Fox and HuffPo.
