Stephen Colbert is troubled by the increasing evidence of Russian interference in last year’s presidential election, But he is more troubled to hear many Republicans dismissing or even justifying the Kremlin’s hacking, telling the New York Times, “if that’s what it took…”
Equally disturbing and weird to Colbert was the episode last week when C-SPAN’s broadcast from the House floor suddenly cut out — and was replaced by Russia Today, the Kremlin-sponsored cable channel that promotes Trump so assiduously. This was “Russian propaganda broadcast directly from Washington, D.C,” the Late Show host observed. “And that’s not supposed to happen until after January 20…Luckily, I’ve been assured that the CBS feed is secure.”
Or is it?
