Stephen Colbert, Upon Learning He's Been Educating His Viewers, Promises To Knock That Off Immediately
We're just here for the laughs, Steve. In response to the news that his viewers were better-informed about campaign finance reform than regular news viewers, Stephen Colbert has promised to stop informing his viewership, effective now. In this Colbert Report clip, he tackles the issue straight-on, telling the world that he would just want to be funny. Amidst the joking, he did manage to land one huge barb, letting the world know what we all think about Fox News. He said:
"That’s right! I did abetter job of informing the public about campaign finance reform than every other news organization — and CNN. So let that be a lesson to you Fox: show — don’t tell. If you want your viewers to have a better understanding of your editorial position, they need to see you sucking Ted Cruz’s balls."
