Jon Stewart Is the Dean of Convention Anchors

As the Democratic convention comes to a close, I found this article from the online version of the San Francisco Chronicle to be right on target.  It is a telling media milepost as political convention TV coverage unfolds over the next two weeks: Jon Stewart is now the dean of commercial network political convention anchors. The old guard is either retired, deceased or disgraced. For the past two nights, Stewart’s show – The Daily Show – has brilliantly skewered the cable news from the left (MSNBC) and right (Fox News).  Thanks to my colleague and friend Melita Juresa for sharing this article. More to come… DJB
