Jon Stewart: The Anti Murdoch 

.





WARREN ST. JOHN

On Friday, Michael Hoyt, the executive editor of the Columbia Journalism Review, said that in some ways Mr. Stewart was providing a counterbalance to the conservatism of the Fox News Channel.

"People are hungry for some sort of attitude and guidance through an ocean of spin," he said. "Fox supplies it in one way, and Jon Stewart in another. Both are reactions to distorted objectivity, what I call a phony objectivity. They are pieces of the same puzzle."

Mr. Gabler said, "It's a form of humor that subverts media convention and reveals the pomposities and idiocies of politicians, but even more the pomposities and idiocies of the media that covers the politicians."
