MSNBC host Rachel Maddow marked Jon Stewart’s farewell to The Daily Show last night by looking back at her 2010 interview with the satirical news anchor.
Maddow also shared why she thinks Stewart made the U.S. a better country:
“I think it has made politics more accountable. I think it has made the news media sharper and more self conscious and ultimately better. This show you’re watching here, this host would not be here if it were not for the influence of Jon Stewart on American politics and American media and his success in doing what he does.”
Watch the segment, which includes Stewart talking about his distaste for the term “fake news,” in the video below:
