More Responsible Then The New York Times

Stephen Colbert's vivisection of Glenn Beck is some of the funniest television I've seen in years.

Incidentally, there is a 10.31 Project website, but it only has the picture up write now.

The transcript of this would actually be a direct contrast to the respectful take on Beck from the New York Times, so eager are they to ingratiate themselves with conservatives and not offend their delicate sensibilities. My favorite part of that:

In an interview, Mr. Beck, who recently rewatched the 1976 film “Network,” said he identified with the character of Howard Beale, the unhinged TV news anchorman who declares on the air that he is “mad as hell.”

“I think that’s the way people feel,” Mr. Beck said. “That’s the way I feel.”

Network was a satire, you idiot. About the vacuous nature of the news media. Which you exemplify.
