Is Stewart the New Cronkite?

Here's news that likely won't inspire a Moment of Zen for the networks: In a poll conducted by Time magazine, Daily Show host Jon Stewart has been voted America's Most Trusted Newscaster, post-Cronkite. Matched up against Brian Williams, Charlie Gibson, and Katie Couric, Stewart won with 44 percent of the vote. Williams came in second, followed by Gibson; Couric finished last. Time has broken down the results state-by-state, for the especially curious. As The Huffington Post points out, "Stewart finished no lower than second place in all states, except, curiously, Vermont."
