Jon Friedman of the Wall Street Journal's Marketwatch site offers a truly terrible idea: replacing Katie Couric at the mountaintop of CBS News with yuk-yuk Jon Stewart of Comedy Central. He tries to ignore that Stewart might be a good answer to the question "What present TV star suggests even less gravitas than Katie Couric?" That would be the man who writes "Go f*** yourselves" gospel songs for TV. But it turns out Friedman the fanboy asked him for his autograph twice at an event, so he cannot be convinced:
I wonder whether Jon Stewart could ever succeed Katie Couric as the anchor of the "CBS Evening News."
Yes, indeed, I mean THAT Jon Stewart, the witty and charming host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show."
