Colbert slices up Pizzagate, Flynn and Alex Jones

Stephen Colbert, perhaps the nation’s most skillful satirist of news as entertainment, is fed up with fake news – especially in the wake of the Pizzagate hoax that resulted in a shooting incident at Comet Ping Pong in Washington, D.C. He quotes Pope Francis comparing “media that…spread fake news to…people who have a morbid fascination with excrement.”

Noting that among the “uninformed gullible people” who appeared to be taken in by the Pizzagate hoax were Michael Flynn, the retired general nominated as Donald Trump’s national security adviser. That may not be the right job for “a guy who spreads this bullshit.”

Thanks to a Wikileaks email, conspiracy kooks like Alex Jones have come after Colbert as well. Gently but firmly, the Late Show host schools that fulminating impresario of idiocy. He concludes with a pointed message for Jones, Wikileaks, and all of the “subReddit sub-geniuses.”.

    Why Colbert still is on the air is the real joke. Nothing he spoke of and the way it was delivered was even remotely funny. And the canned laughter they had to pipe in only helps prove that the segment wasn’t funny.

    This whole thing about Pizzagate is so true to democrats. A story to be outraged by and to keep focus on while they continue to live the high life with taxpayer money. Alex Jones made it very clear that this Pizzagate is suspicious but there really isn’t any evidence to prove anything. Colbert, I thought was a down the middle guy but he showed how he really is this past year. It shows and so does his ratings. CNN is the cream of the crop when it comes to fake news. I wish people can just go and watch them fake the Iraq war (the first one). Before all of this “fake” news crap started to pop up. I was shown exactly how every news outlet says the same thing with catch words and catch phrases on almost every major news outlet around the country. I wish these celebrities would just do there job and entertain. There paid to make us laugh not guide us or tell us how to think.
