It was a good headline: "John Stewart's secret White House visits." Too bad it had nothing to do with reality.
Earlier this week, Politico ran an article about the legacy of The Daily Show. It was an OK article, paired with one of the BEST CLICKBAIT HEADLINES OF ALL TIME. Truly, when it comes to mountain-from-molehill B.S., this was one of the best trumped-up hype pieces the Internet has seen all year. I wrote about it. I may be one of the least important people on the Internet, but at least now I know (unless Stewart's deception runs far deeper than I ever expected) that I was right.
