Today Stephen Colbert testified before congress about migrant workers. First he gave his opening statement:
Then answered a few follow up questions:
…and then the poo-poo hit the fan…at least on Fox News. They acted like this was the worst thing to happen in Washington since McCarthyism.
Way to take exactly the wrong message from Colbert’s appearance. They marginalized the fact that this thing got more attention than any congregational committee since the impeachment. He is literally lending his power to give attention to this topic. And they act like he’s ruining our democracy. He wasn’t passing himself off as an expert but he did at least take the time to experience what the workers experience. How dare he share that experience and perspective.
Fox, stop sucking!
(PS-I haven’t seen what CNN and/or MSNBC have had to say…but if they had similar slams they can eat my soiled underwear too!)
