Sean O’Neal, writing for The A.V. Club:
Ending one of the most venerable and trusted careers in making a
complete mockery of the news, Jon Stewart has announced that he is
stepping down as host of The Daily Show. According to sources who
were there (some of whom are already passing word along on social
media), Stewart let the news slip at the taping of today’s
episode, telling those in the audience that he’s retiring.
