Colbert Rips Fox News & CNN For Libya Coverage Spat (VIDEO)

Sometimes journalists accidentally become part of a story simply by being present to report on it as it develops. And other times they use a story to shamelessly shift the focus to themselves.

The latter seems to be the case when it comes to the recent spat between FoxNews and CNN over coverage in Libya, and on Tuesday night's "Colbert Report," Stephen called them out on it.

Of course, he did it in the guise of praising them for their integrity.
