Colbert Attacks Facts On Behalf Of Truth-Challenged Pundits (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert went after facts this week in a segment "defending" Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich, and others for playing fast and loose with the truth. As he says, "If pundits want to save America, they have to do what's wrong to prove they're right."

Not only did Colbert expose some basic misinformation that talking heads, specifically of the Fox News variety, have passed off as fact, but he showed how the exact rhetoric of these men and women was regurgitated at the town halls Fox claims are spontaneous.
