COVER STORY: America’s Anchors Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert : Rolling Stone

A fake news show, “The Daily Show,” spawned a fake commentator, Colbert, who makes his own fake reality defending the fake reality of a real president, and has government officials on who know the joke but are still willing to be mocked by someone fake. Your shows are like mirrors within mirrors, using a cycle of fakery to get to the truth. You’ve tapped into a sense in society that nothing, from reality shows to Bushworld, is real anymore. Do you guys ever get confused by your hall of mirrors?

STEWART: I didn’t know we were going to have to be high to do this interview.

Honestly, I’d be happy if they doubled the length of both of these programs.  They’re incredibly short right now 🙁

  1. I’ve been watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report since each of them first aired. Took me a bit to like Colbert but he’s come into his stride now and is really funny. Of course, Bush &Co have made it easy these last 8 years.

  2. “They’re the Cronkite and Murrow for an ironic millennium” This scares me a bit.
    These are some interesting guys. I’m now going to attempt to seek out and watch that Washington press club speech.

  4. They didn’t invite Colbert back after that performance. It was as if they’d never actually seen his show…which would be par for the course for the Bush administration. I suppose if you’d only seen what he said instead of actually watching his show, you might get the idea that he was a proponent of Bush.

  5. Um, one would have to be pretty dull to not get the sarcasm in that speech, at least by the end of it. I think the White House Correspondents probably knew who he was, but for some reason didn’t anticipate just how pointed he would be. Presumably this same failing is how he keeps managing to get guests to come on his show, also.
