With Jon Stewart leaving Comedy Central's The Daily Show later this year, we'll all be missing an important voice, in comedy and in the media.

Here are 8 times Jon Stewart was at his greatest on the issues, from money in politics to voting rights and beyond.

On Money in Politics:

Jon Stewart laments extreme fundraising measures in the 2014 midterm elections.
Jon welcomes his newest "sponsor" - the Koch brothers.

Jon bemoans the Supreme Court decision in McCutcheon v. FEC.

Jon addresses coordination among Super PACs - including the Colbert Super PAC.

Jon and John Oliver spar over the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.


On Voting Rights:


Jon addresses the concept of "voter fraud" and requiring voters to have certain IDs to vote.


The Daily Show investigates the results of the Supreme Court's evisceration of the Voting Rights Act.

And Even on Redistricting:

The Daily Show examines gerrymandering.

Thanks for all of the laughs, Jon. Keep up the good work in your last year at The Daily Show.
