Colbert: The greatest thing about this man is he's steady. You know where he stands. He believes the same thing Wednesday that he believed on Monday, no matter what happened Tuesday. Events can change, this man's beliefs never will.

Zoller: "What came to mind after seeing "United 93" this weekend is 9/11 was a Tuesday, so that was -- and he probably didn't even think about a that, but for me, having lost friends in the World Trade Towers that was the first thing I thought of. "

http://thinkprogress.org/2006/05/24/delay-colbert/

"A good sign that Tom DeLay doesn’t have the facts on his side: the top source for his latest defense against his critics is Stephen Colbert.

This morning, DeLay’s legal defense fund sent out a mass email criticizing the movie “The Big Buy: Tom DeLay’s Stolen Congress,” by “Outfoxed” creator Robert Greenwald.

The email features a “one-pager on the truth behind Liberal Hollywood’s the Big Buy,” and the lead item is Colbert’s interview with Greenwald on Comedy Central (where Colbert plays a faux-conservative, O’Reilly-esque character). The headline of the “fact sheet”:

DeLay thinks Colbert is so persuasive, he’s now featuring the full video of the interview at the top of the legal fund’s website. And why not? According to the email, Greenwald “crashed and burned” under the pressure of Colbert’s hard-hitting questions, like “Who hates America more, you or Michael Moore?”

Apparently the people at DeLay’s legal fund think that Colbert is actually a conservative. Or maybe they’re just that desperate for supporters. "

Great Minds...I was just going to post that.


Stupid.


Colbert must be loving it


On another note, a congressman tries to turn the tables on Colbert but it's really really really lame and kind of painful:

Problem is, many viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbet Report think they are watching real news (which is a lot easier than finding New York on a map).

I know, that's really sad.

What's even more sad is that they're missing out on most of the jokes! Half of it is the way they make fun of the real news.

I know they aren't real news shows, but what's on CNN and MSNBC and Fox News aren't exactly what I would call real "news" anymore, either. I was in the break room at work eating lunch today, and they had the TV tuned to MSNBC. They were going on and on about last night's American Idol finale for at least 20 minutes - maybe longer, since the segment was already underway when I got to the break room.

Is there any study that actually shows that to be true?

I know there is one that shows that the Daily Show audience is better informed and more educated than viewers of mainstream media shows (FOX, NBC, etc).

So I doubt the veracity of the statement.
