  • What Atheist Ricky Gervais Got Wrong Debating God With Stephen Colbert

    Comedian and atheist Ricky Gervais recently squared off with comedian and Roman Catholic Stephen Colbert over religion during a recent taping of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." The exchange was brief and mostly unproductive in terms of articulating anything of value, but it did provide some insight into one of atheism's blind spots—teleology (the purpose of things). I encourage you to watch the video. Not long into the discussion, Colbert presents Gervais with the philosophical question, "Why is there something instead of nothing?" Gervais immediately dismisses the question as making "no sense at all." Ricky Gervais then proceeds to change the question...

    Stephen Colbert’s role as the conservative newsman on the Comedy Central hit show, The Colbert Report, was a prime source of news for many millennials. It was also a chief avenue of propaganda for the Clintons years before Hillary ran for president. Wikileaks revealed on Tuesday that Colbert and his team at Comedy Central were making episodes at the request or order of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) back in April of 2013. Craig Minassian of the Clinton group e-mailed John Podesta, the close ally and future campaign manager for Hillary, to see if he saw a specific episode of...
  • Stephen Colbert Slams Senate for Failing to Pass Gun Control Bills

    06/22/2016 7:10:03 AM PDT · by rktman · 51 replies ^ | 6/22/2016 | Nick Paschal
    Stephen Colbert was angrier than usual with the Senate after they failed to pass any of the proposed gun control bills this week. The Late Show host had a hard time believing that they couldn’t come together on something that so many Americans agree on, saying, “Ninety-two percent of Americans want to expand background checks for gun buyers, and you just ignore them. Since when does 8 percent of the population get to have total control of an issue?”
  • It's 'Our Jobs' As Journalists to Shift Conversation Away From Clinton's Past

    During a conversation Wednesday night at a YMCA in New York City, CBS’ late night host Stephen Colbert interviewed CBS News political director John Dickerson on the race for the White House. At some point in the interview, they took audience questions in which one person asked if Bill Clinton’s past should affect Hillary Clinton’s future. Dickerson responded by admitting that it was one of journalists’ “jobs” to steer the conversation away from candidates' pasts.
  • Colbert to Hillary: 'Lying Should Be the Easiest Part of Campaigning!'

    02/23/2016 7:00:10 PM PST · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | February 23, 2016 | Melissa Mullins
    They say "honesty is the best policy" but apparently Democratic presidential candidate frontrunner Hilary Clinton didn’t get that memo either. Nevertheless, comedian Stephen Colbert tried passing along the message to her this past Friday on The Late Show when he joked, “lying should be the easiest part of campaigning,” reacting to the cringe-worthy, face-palm inducing statement the former secretary of state made to interviewer Scott Pelley of CBS: Well, but, you know, you're asking me to say, "Have I ever?" I don't believe I ever have. I don't believe I ever have. I don't believe I ever will. I'm going...
  • REPORT: Megyn Kelly & Bill O’Reilly at War After She Slams His Show on National TV

    02/11/2016 8:16:40 PM PST · by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain · 113 replies
    For many months, Fox News and GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump have been at each other's throats. Trump has claimed that Fox News personality Megyn Kelly hasn't been fair to him, and Fox has said that Trump's accusations are baseless. New York Magazine reported that this little spat may be causing some further complications within the Fox News network. Reportedly Megyn Kelly and Bill O'Reilly are at each other's throats over Trump and Kelly's increasing popularity. Despite angering many people with her treatment of Trump, Kelly's popularity in Republican circles has actually grown, and she is now at the center...

    Thursday, January 21, 2016 Trolling is the New Politics Posted by Daniel Greenfield Your classic troll was an amoral sociopath or played one on the internet. His only cause was his own amusement. He advocated horrible and contradictory causes because it amused him to infuriate people. If he could get an entire group howling for his blood, he won. If an outraged media reported on his antics, he was a prince among trolls. Chaos and absurdity were his only agendas. But eventually the trolls who did it for the "Lulz" gave way to the "Moralfags" sincere trolls who were sincerely...

    Stephen Colbert is seeing some striking similarities between his old character and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. ‘I’m not the first person to say this, but I completely agree that he’s my old character with 10 billion dollars,’ Colbert said. Colbert had played a cartoonish conservative for years on The Colbert Report, before retiring the character to take the reins of the Late Show in September, after David Letterman retired. Talking to Face the Nation’s John Dickerson, Colbert said that Trump was ‘doing it better than I ever could.’ Colbert said Trump’s success comes because ‘he’s willing to drink his own...

    Don't panic, liberals. Stephen Colbert won't really be supporting Donald Trump on Face The Nation this Sunday. He will only be pretending to support Trump in his character of pretend conservative from The Colbert Report. Since his current Late Show ratings on CBS are falling, one can't blame him for attempting to reprise a role that enjoyed some success. Of course, many liberals out there won't be in on the obvious joke when reading this Politico report  which leaves off the fact that Colbert will only be pretending although anybody who is familiar with him would know there is no way...

    New York Post ^ | November 21, 2015 | Kyle Smith
    So Stephen Colbert turns out to be just as much of an a-hole as "Stephen Colbert." Viewers have noticed. After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before. The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late...

    Stephen Colbert isn't pleased with the wall of Republicans who are against accepting Syrian refugees into the United States and the recent passing of a bill that calls for stricter vetting of refugees from Iraq and Syria. The "Late Show" host said it was the only thing he wanted to talk about post-Paris attacks. "The question to let Syrian refugees into this country has become the new political issue, completely overshadowing the old political issue: whether to let Mexicans into this country," he said. He brought up the lunacy of Donald Trump's joke that Syrian refugees would be very angry...

    Cutting an increasingly frail figure, Burt Reynold arrived in New York yesterday for an interview on Stephen Colbert's 'The Late Show'. Still using a cane to walk, the 79-year-old star hit the studio as part of his press rounds for new memoir 'But Enough About Me'. Former Hollywood macho man Reynolds has been suffering ill health for many years now, with back surgery in 2009 leaving him addicted to pain killers.

    "Colbert bests Trump."That was the title of a Politico story by Ben Schreckinger about Donald Trump's appearance last night on CBS's Late Show hosted by Stephen Colbert. Huh? Did Ben see the same show as everybody else because your humble correspondent was surprised at how amiable the interview was. You can see most of the interview  below and judge for yourself. Here is part of what Schreckinger wrote in trying to score liberal points at the expense of Trump in contrast to rather friendly reality:

    Stephen Colbert interviewed GOP presidential front-running candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday night, according to NBC on Wednesday morning. From the moment Colbert informed the audience that Trump would be appearing through to the post-interview comments Colbert continued to make after Trump left the stage, the atmosphere was comfortably amicable. As one knows, many Trump interviews have not been made comfortable for the billionaire or the audiences subjected to the interviews in the past several months. Colbert was spectacular with his interviewing skills as the newest host of “The Late Show” on NBC as he allowed Trump to be human and...

    Stephen Colbert started off his biggest "Late Show" interview yet by flattering his subject. "Everybody loves Joe Biden," Colbert said, eliciting a loud cheer from a younger-skewing audience. In the nearly 20 minutes of back-and-forth, emotional, and, at times, gut-wrenching conversation that ensued, Biden showed why — although Colbert's statement is a bit of a hyperbole — that is largely true. Joe Biden embodies authenticity at a time when the voting public craves it. For his part, Colbert surmised that "everybody loves Joe Biden" because "when we see you, we think we're actually seeing the real Joe Biden. You're not...
