I guess they feel it's worth it. If they're paying him that much, they obviously figure they'll make at least double that.

People love to hear biased opinions, supporting their own. That's one of the reasons why Colbert, Stewart, O'Reilly, and Limbaugh are so popular.

I like to hear biased opinions whether I agree with them, or disagree. That's why I can listen to Rush Limbaugh, Ed Schultz, Michael Savage, et al. I have tried to listen to those who are doing a pretty good job of not being biased (CSPAN) but it is just so boring, that I can't listen long and certainly not often. Those who are most irritating go about putting on a non-biased face, but the bias is everpresent in what they report. They might be entertaining to watch or listen to if they would just "come out of the closet" and speak their mind without any pretense of objectivity.

Do you like Colbert, for a biased view?


Try him for a few episodes. His idol is 'Papa Bear', Bill O'Reilly.

Maybe I would know who Colbert is if I saw him. But I can't place the name. I don't like O'Reilly. He is very annoying.

It's on Comedy Central, in the evening. Just after John Stewart.

He pretends to be a conservative talk show host, skewering the right.

Here he is as a guest on the O'Reilly Factor:

I never heard/saw Stephen Colbert before. That was funny. Two obnoxious twins. Does Colbert always "emulate" O'Reilly? Or does he do others?
