Someone isn't sad to see Jon Stewart leave 'The Daily Show'

Last night, news broke that Jon Stewart would be departing 'The Daily Show' after fifteen years on the program. Many have credited Stewart with getting millennials to pay attention to the news, but is that a good thing? On radio this morning, Stu couldn't hold back his feelings on 'The Daily Show' host and how this is a huge step forward for the United States as a whole.

On last night's show, Stewart said he was leaving the show because "it is time for someone else to have that opportunity."

He said that he was still working out the details and that a date has not been set, but he said that he would not miss being on television every day.

"I don't have any specific plans; I've got a lot of ideas, I've got a lot of things in my head. I'm going to have dinner on a school night with my family, who I have heard from multiple sources are lovely people," he said.

Below is Comedy Central's statement on Stewart's departure:

As the guys discussed the news on radio this morning, Stu couldn't hold back his excitement to see Stewart exit.

"The Stewart thing everyone is going to cry about and make these big statements about how wonderful he was," Stu said. "I don't care where he goes. I hope he goes away. I'm not ended in his little cutesy act anymore. It's been old for the last 12 years. He's done it for 16 years, 12 of which it was just repetitive and boring. Bring back Craig Kilborn."

"I think he's completed overrated and the adoration that gets thrown his way- ," Stu said. "The guy goes throughout and he makes fun of people at CNN. He has no standards he has to keep. He doesn't have to worry about being wrong. It's a comedy show, come on. He gets constantly praised by everybody and it's like, all right. I'm over it. And the same thing with Colbert. It's the same exact every single night. Wonderful, you can find something to be critical of on CNN."

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.
