Political Power: Jon Stewart
As the creative force behind the award-winning satire news program "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart has become known as "the most trusted man in America." The road to success was not always smooth. Learn how a young man overcame anti-Semitic bullying at an early age to eventually make millions of people laugh... and how a puppeteer for children with disabilities, a caterer, a busboy, a shelf stocker, and a bartender wound up helming a consistent ratings powerhouse and perennial Emmy-winning show that ironically has more influence than most of the shows it satirizes.
