Jon Stewart Laments The Fact That Despite The Headlines, He Didn't Actually 'Eviscerate' Anyone

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart had some fun with all of the overblown headlines about his show over the years.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart opened his second to last show by having some fun with all of the overblown headlines that have been written about him over the years. As Stewart lamented, despite the fact that he's been given credit for either "eviscerating" or "annihilating" everything from ISIS and terrorism, to racism, to Wall Street to Fox News, sadly, things haven't gotten any better on any of those fronts during the time he's been on the air.

ISIS is still going strong. Racism is still alive and well. One lousy banker has gone to jail for the excesses of Wall Street, and not only is Fox "news" still on the air, they're running the first GOP debate and their influence "has gone all the way to the White House."

Stewart Realizes That Despite Web Headlines, He Didn’t Actually ‘Eviscerate’ Anyone:

Well, tonight, on his penultimate night, Stewart discovered that he didn’t actually do any of that.

No, instead, he realized that ISIS, racism, Wall Street, and even Fox are still going strong despite the jokes he told about them. Stewart cried, “What the fuck is going on here?! The world is demonstrably worse than when I started! Have I caused this?! Have my efforts all been for naught?”

But there was one thing Stewart was happy to see change for the better.
