Jon Stewart: Most Trusted News Person Among Neocons?

There's evidence that Jon Stewart is not just the most trusted person in news among laughing liberals. In a recent New York magazine article, neoconservative pundits says they too love the fake-news anchor for his intellectual curiosity.

Republican national-security hawk Cliff May was pleasantly surprised when he appeared as a guest on the program notorious for its cracks against the Republican party. In fact May said he had one of the best discussions on torture he'd ever had. And although former ambassador to the UN John Bolton probably holds a worldview opposite of Stewart's, he has warm feelings for the comedian, too. Bolton, who received a friendship bracelet from Stewart last time he was on, told New York:

He always gives you a chance to answer, which some people don't do. He's got his perspective, but he's been fair. In general, a lot of the media, especially on the left, has lost interest in debate and analysis. . . . Stewart fundamentally wants to talk about the issues.

It's amazing that a staunch conservative like John Bolton can come on The Daily Show and discuss how a military strike against Iran is a good thing just minutes after Jon Stewart presents the segment So You Think You Can Douche blasting Bolton's fellow Republicans. And it's all done on Comedy Central to boot!
