Comedy trumps Journalism yet again


Starting off with the "Gay Demon" alert now that one has been exorcised from a poor gay child. Then onto The Word: STONEWALLING

We then laugh at FoxNews' referring to ABC's airing of the White House for a night as a long "infomercial" as Colbert jests that it's apparently better journalism for a network to do this for a full 8 years. Finally, he speaks with Jim Fouratt on the Stonewall riots:

The entire episode was done with the tongue-in-cheek satire as though he's a hardcore right-winger, like he does every night, in true mockery of O'Reilly's dizzying no-spin zone. I think Colbert has closed his Emmy case solid this year, though Jon Stewart's not far behind, as he's IN the news:

He apparently scares Cheney too much! A comedian terrifies the guy who waterboards the world! Ladies and gentlemen, this is too much for me.
