Pop Culture 2015: Petition for Jon Stewart to Moderate Presidential Debate

A petition for former Daily Show host Jon Stewart to moderate a 2016 presidential debate has passed 100,000 signatures, gaining steam over the past few hours.

The Change.org petition ays that Stewart has become influential and iconic when it comes to covering U.S. politics and media.

“Jon Stewart is more than qualified to tackle the moderating job,” the petition states. “Mr. Stewart has interviewed 15 heads of state, 22 members of the United States Cabinet, 32 members of the United States Senate, 7 members of the United States House of Representatives, and scores of other political leaders from this country and around the world while establishing himself as the most trusted person in (satirical) news.”
