Andrew Learmonth: Why Jon Stewart's departure from the Daily Show highlights Scotland's desperate need for satire
Journalist Andrew Learmonth argues that the coverage around Jon Stewart's departure from the satirical US politics show highlights Scotland's need to introduce more humour.
THE amount of column inches given over to Jon Stewart leaving the Daily Show shows you that his resignation was felt keenly in this part of world. Which is odd, because his show is American and about American politics. Maybe the coverage given over to his resignation is purely because journalists and media types like him. Or maybe it was felt so keenly because we don't have anyone like him.
