No, Jon, No!!!

Apology for Iraq
“Finally someone is being held to account for misleading America about the Iraq War! 

“Never again will Brian Williams mislead this great nation about being shot at in a war that we probably wouldn’t have ended up in if the media had applied this level of scrutiny to the actual f***ing war.”

—Jon Stewart, revered host, “The Daily Show,” running up friend Brian Williams over the NBC News anchor’s misremembering, Feb. 9, 2015

News: Brian Williams suspended from NBC News for six months.
Terrible News: Jon Stewart to abandon us, stepping down from Daily Show later this year! 

Editorial Comment: The heck w/ Brian. How will we get through the 2016 election without Jon???
