Senior VP of exhibits and programs at Newseum, Cathy Trost, said, "From The Daily Show anchor desk, Jon Stewart dissected the news with blistering wit and wisdom as millions watched.
"He also was a voice for a strong and free press, and against the silencing of journalists by repressive regimes.
"We are thrilled to accept the donation of these artifacts to the Newseum collection, because they are part of America’s cultural and media history, telling an important story about how political satire and news as humor made The Daily Show a trusted news source for a generation."
Newseum has a similar mission: to champion the five freedoms of the First Amendment through exhibits, public programs, and education.
On the air since 1999, Jon Stewart's last show is August 6. Trevor Noah will (attempt) to take his place in September (no offense, Trevor!) while we try to gather our emotions and adjust.
