Colbert Skewers Gardner's Personhood Falsehood

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert skewered Colorado senatorial candidate Cory Gardner's crazy falsehood that there is "no federal personhood bill," starting at the 4:20 mark in the video below.

Fox 31 Denver's Eli Stokols is featured in the segment. He, along with other local journalists (e.g., 9News' Brandon Rittiman, Durango Herald's Peter Marcus, Grand Junction Sentinel Charles Ashby, CBS4's Shaun Boyd), have done the right thing, journalism-wise, in trying to hold Gardner accountable and to expose the brazen falsehoods that Gardner been repeating about the Life at Conception Act.

And proving that you never know where personhood media-criticism will get you, look really closely at the 5:03 mark, and you'll see a Denver Post op-ed by yours truly flash across the screen!

In any case, Colbert's take on speaks for itself.

Gardner's U.S. Senate race against Sen. Mark Udall is considered a tossup.
