A big day for news anchors, both serious and satirical. Jon Stewart will be stepping down from The Daily Show before the end of the year where he’s served as anchor for nearly two decades (this, of course, months after his protégé Stephen Colbert left his eponymous show to take over for David Letterman). And Brian Williams has been suspended from NBC Nightly News for six months, effective immediately in the wake of a changing-story scandal. The story’s been written before, but it seems the satirical news media has gotten the best of the “real guys” once again.
