Is Jon Stewart the Most Influential Man in the World?

by at . Comments

Days before he hosts a Rally to Restore Sanity in the nation's capital, Jon Stewart has been honored as the most influential man of 2010.

"Despite his innumerable enemies, Stewart's acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason," wrote AskMen, the website that conducted this survey. "Stewart's show was once dubbed the 'fake news,' but these days it's become our youths' most trusted source of information."

Rounding out the top five in the poll: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Kanye West. President Barack Obama? All the way down at number-21. Ouch. Writes the site:

"Nearly two years into his presidency, Barack Obama's rallying cry of 'Yes we can' is starting to look like a bitter joke. America's chief executive has faced one formidable roadblock after another as he's attempted to get the country back on its feet."

Do you agree with this website's findings? Is Stewart the most influential man in the world?
