The Torch Is Passed

NOON -- Jason Linkins reports on The Huffington Post that a plurality of Americans prefer to get their news from a comedy show:

    Well, in a result that he will probably accept as downright apocalyptic for America, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has been selected, in an online poll conducted by Time Magazine, as America's Most Trusted Newscaster, post-Cronkite. Matched up against Brian Williams, Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson, Stewart prevailed with 44 percent of the vote.
What, no Wolf Blitzer?

Here's Time's map of the results. Note that, while she came in dead last overall, perky Katie Couric totally rules in Iowa.

re: The Torch Is Passed Gotta say, Iowa seems to be the outlier on most of the Time polls, whether it be about the worthiness of going to the Moon, or the best Sacha Baron Cohen character... The ol' Hawkeye state seems to be the contrarian and by large numbers... Something tells me there's some polling shenanigans going on.
