Speaking Truthiness to Power

Stephen Colbert is not just a brilliant comedian, but one of the bravest people this year (in media, you know) after his electrifying speech in front of the National Press Club last weekend. If you haven’t seen the video, this tribute page has been set up to guide you to the links. With our fascist “leader” only a few chairs away, Colbert flayed the administration and its lapdog press in his parody Right Winger persona. It was just great, and I won’t ruin any of the jokes by printing them here, as they’ll lose their effect. Why does it take a comedian to do the press’ job, eh?
