Growing number of Americans want Jon Stewart, former host of The Daily Show, to moderate one of the three major 2016 Presidential Debates, Dailydot.com reports. Over 82,000 users have already signed the petition.
“Jon Stewart has played an influential and iconic role in covering US politics and media,” the petition creator says. “He is more than qualified to tackle the moderating job. Mr. Stewart has interviewed 15 heads of state, 22 members of the United States Cabinet, 32 members of the United States Senate, 7 members of the United States House of Representatives, and scores of other political leaders from this country and around the world while establishing himself as the most trusted person in (satirical) news. We believe he should continue that tradition as a moderator at one of the 2016 Presidential Debates.”
Mr. Stewart has not commented the petition yet.
