We're Learning More From Stephen Colbert Than The Actual News, Study Says

“I just hope that when Colbert takes over the Letterman show, he doesn't allow the phony incessant audience clapping at every monologue joke, as they do with Letterman. I've either had to give up Letterman altogether, or when he has an interesting guest, I DVR and fast forward past the monologue.”

“I agree with everything you've said except referring to The Colbert Report as"fake news." That title belongs to Fox. Colbert's alter persona is more satire while being informative at the same time (if you're smart enough to get it).”

“How was it before the switch? That happened quite a while ago -- surely before this story. Anyway, I was against it at first -- but have you seen AOL comments lately? Have a look at today's story about the First Lady's clothes budget. I'm beginning to think HP was right.”

“A time frame has to be established, limited or defined in these types of polls in order for them to mean anything. Of ALL TIME would have to include Casablanca and Gone With the Wind, among others. Obviously the readers of Empire Magazine are a certain demographic that has never seen these movies or certain others too numerous to list here, and probably have never even heard of Ingrid Bergman or Humphrey Bogart.

The key words here are "according to" Empire Magazine fan poll. This result, of course, doesn't necessarily mean that they actually ARE the greatest movies of all time.”

“Research proves otherwise (unless you also are certain that all scientific research is "liberal bias.") See my post about Rockefeller Center and the early days when everyone from executives to secretaries took naps, and I doubt that they were all "liberals."”

“No, it was right on topic. Napping at the library? Give me a break, only a liberal could dream up such a thing. One goes to school to get an education not nap in the library.”

“Oh, would that they WERE "desperate for revenue," and that they would stop more bicycles and ticket them for running red lights and riding on the sidewalks, not only in traffic, but on the walkways in Central Park, as well, totally ignoring the signs that say "no bicycles on walkways."

You can always tell people from out of town or other countries with the rental bikes. They're the ones who do stop at lights and at crosswalks.”

“There's a magnificent and rare chestnut tree blooming in Central Park today. I pointed it out to a group of people this morning, as we walked by with our dogs. One of them said, "the Asians will probably be out there this Fall gathering the chestnuts as they drop to the ground." [This is what they do, for those who don't know. They are very resourceful and are there every autumn gathering falling ginkgo and other nuts that fall from the trees.]

I said, "Watch what you say. Someone might be around with a tape recorder and will send what you said to the news media, and you'll lose all your clients."

We all laughed -- but it's not funny that, as disagreeable as Sterling's comments were, they were said in a private conversation and I hope we're not going to tolerate intrusion into people's private conversations for intimidation and persecution. Stiviano is the one who should be scorned.”
