    1. Anyone reading the leaks knew this was the case.

    Clinton’s own Colbert and others. No wonder they were surprised they lost!

    2. Bullshit opinion based on minimal evidence

    Cultureshock news? USA politics.com?

    the Wikileaks email does not provide evidence that Colbert was “taking orders” from Clinton machine- at best it shows an email conversation about positive/desired coverage of HRC or a particular issue (doesn’t mention what the particular show was about).

     

    As as a regular viewer of Colbert’s show on CBS, I can tell you that if he was biased towards a candidate, it was Bernie Sanders, based on his many appearances and mentions. HRC was on the show once, IIRC, and was frequently skewered and lampooned in animated form, as was Trump. Colbert’s general election slant was more clearly anti-Trump than pro-HRC.

    I believe Colbert has admitted to discussing proposed questions when candidates have appeared on his show, which is SOP for talk shows whether the guest is an actor politician, etc.

    if anyone is a shill on late night TV, take a look at Jimmy Fallon- he did a lot to humanize and normalize Trump, with the hair mussing and other nonsense-Tina Fey even jabbed him about it when they appeared on SNL before the election.

    3. Whoever this is, he can't read worth shit.

    I don’t doubt the point being made. Just too bad about the voice-over.

    4. Of the live audience TV comics, Colbert had the least

    apparent brainwashing.  From what I saw, despite his occasional disclaimers about not liking Hill much, Maher drank a lot of Kool-Aid particularly in the last few weeks.  Even Mike Moore made a syncophantic ass out of himself on the Bill show.

    5. We quit watching Colbert when it became

    Obvious that he didn’t want to, or need to, treat Bernie like a viable candidate.

    It was satisfying to read about a month before the  DNC convention, that his ratings were in the toilet.

      6. One more name who threw it all away in the vain belief that

      informed voters can be fooled by lot of televisised entertainment.

      "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016
