Colbert walks off The View.

Aside from the fun, it’s actually a pretty meaningful, touching, powerful—albeit brief—look into Stephen Colbert’s family and morals and hard lessons learned. Loved this.

    I love Colbert. He's so fantastic at what he does. He and Stewart are some of the best stuff on TV.

    He and stewart are my only intake of news…I need news with a satire coating or I can't swallow it 🙂

  3. But Colbert and Stewart are comedians. They do not deliver news.

    And I wonder how the sarcasm, cynicism, and ridicule affect our culture. Does it teach us to belittle others? Does it lead to bullying? Does it harden our character?

    For a short time in my life I struggled with the quick wit put down style. I was working in Hollywood and the norm was the witty put down, the sarcastic repartee. People battled to stay on top by cutting others…and I found I could do it, though one has to stay in "shape" and practice to keep one's timing, but in the end it felt like such an unhappy way to live, such a vicious emotional state.

    When I see Colbert or Stewart I am reminded of that Hollywood way of being. Not sure it is healthy for our culture. Would much rather see a talk show with a Rinpoche who can laugh at the larger view of things with compassion.
