The Colbert Report is a spin-off and counterpart of The Daily Show which, like The Daily Show, critiques politics and the media. It satirizes personality-driven political pundit programs, particularly Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor.[1][2] The show focuses on Stephen Colbert, a fictional anchorman character played by Colbert. The character, described by Colbert as a "well-intentioned, poorly informed, high-status idiot", is a caricature of televised political pundits.[3][4] A spin-off (or spinoff) is a new organization or entity formed by a split from a larger one such as a new company formed from a university research group. ...

The Colbert Report was nominated for four Emmys each in 2006 and 2007, two Television Critics Association Awards, and two Satellite Awards. It received a Special Recognition award at the 2007 GLAAD Media Awards. It has been presented as non-satirical journalism in several instances, by the Tom DeLay Legal Defense Trust, and following Robert Wexler's interview on the program.

The Report has had cultural influence in a number of ways. In 2006, after Colbert encouraged viewers to vote online to name a Hungarian bridge after him, he won the first round of voting with 17,231,724 votes.[6] The Ambassador of the Republic of Hungary presented Mr. Colbert with a declaration certifying him as the winner of the second and final round of voting, though it was later announced that the bridge would be named the Megyeri Bridge. In 2007, the Democratic Caucus chair instructed freshmen not to appear on the show's 'Better Know a District' segment.[7] The Report has also coined several neologisms, such as "freem" and "wikiality".

Colbert on "The Colbert Gang"

In 2004, The Daily Show won Emmy Awards, and Comedy Central wanted to expand the franchise.[8] Stephen Colbert had been a correspondent on, and co-writer for, The Daily Show for six seasons. Jon Stewart and Ben Karlin (The Daily Show's executive producer) supposedly came up with the idea for The Colbert Report after watching coverage of the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Bill O'Reilly. Jon Stewart's production company, Busboy Productions, developed The Report. Colbert, Stewart, and Karlin pitched the idea of the show (reportedly with one phrase: "our version of The O'Reilly Factor with Stephen Colbert") to Comedy Central chief Doug Herzog, who agreed to run the show for eight weeks without creating a pilot.[9] Image File history File links Thecolbertgang. ...

The Colbert Report first appeared in the form of three commercials for itself which aired several times on The Daily Show, although the themes that form the basis for The Report can be seen in the reports of Colbert's correspondent character on The Daily Show. The show debuted October 17, 2005, with an initial contract for an eight-week run. On November 2, 2005 based on the strong ratings for the show's first two weeks, Comedy Central and Colbert announced they had signed for an additional year, through the end of 2006.[10] The examples and perspective in this article or section may not represent a worldwide view. ... is the 290th day of the year (291st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Program format

Typically, Colbert starts each episode with teasers regarding the show's topics and guest, followed by a verbal metaphor that promotes the show — for example, "Go out ten yards and button-hook to the left. I'm going to hit you with a perfect spiral of the truth. This is The Colbert Report." The show's opening title sequence begins with images of flag waving, Colbert striking poses and words describing Colbert flying by. Originally, the last word was grippy, but it has changed to megamerican, Lincolnish, superstantial, freem, eneagled, flagaphile, good, gutly, warrior-poet, President Bush have a hotdog with me, and Self-Evident (for the week of April 14, 2008, in honor of the show's broadcast from Philadelphia, returning to President Bush have a hotdog with me afterwards). The sequence ends with a computer-generated shrieking eagle swooping toward the foreground. This article is about metaphor in literature and rhetoric. ...

Following the opening sequence, Colbert proceeds a run-through of the day's headlines, similar to that of The Daily Show but with a pseudo-right-wing spin. The program proper then begins with Colbert addressing a specific topic. That topic will usually lead into a "The Wørd" segment, which juxtaposes Colbert's commentary with satirical bullet points on-screen, a parody on The O'Reilly Factor's "Talking Points Memo;"[11] though on occasion he will conduct a short interview with someone having to do with the topic. The format of the middle segment varies, but it is normally a visual presentation or skit. Often, these skits are parts of recurring segments, which include: Right wing redirects here. ...

  • "The Wørd" is a section that occurs in nearly every episode besides those that occurred during the Writer's Strike. It consists of a word or phrase that is linked to his current monologue, and proceeds with Colbert speaking on the subject in the left half of the screen, and a completely different entity commenting on the right half of the screen. The comments are often witty phrases and one-liners that lie in juxtaposition to Colbert's right-wing act.
  • "Better Know a District", where Colbert interviews a U.S. Representative from a certain district of the United States. There are various spin-offs of the segment.
  • "Tip of the Hat / Wag of the Finger", where Colbert "tips his hat" to things he approves of and "wags his finger" at things he disapproves of.
  • "Stephen Colbert's Formidable Opponent", where Colbert debates in a split screen with the only person he thinks is worthy: himself. Usually one of the Colberts takes a more liberal stance and the other one a right-wing fundamentalist one, usually with latter winning.
  • "People Destroying America," a segment where Colbert interviews a certain person who is (usually ridiculously) "destroying America."
  • "Cheating Death with Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A.", a health segment presented by Colbert ever since he was given an honorary doctorate, despite the fact it was in fine arts. All of the products he advertises are from "Prescott Pharmaceuticals", and have horrible side effects--occasionally, a more severe version of what the product supposedly cures.
  • "The Threatdown", where he lists the five biggest threats to America, although the number one threat normally tends to be bears or robots, as Colbert purports to have a phobia of both.
  • "Colbert Platinum", covering stories relating to expensive, high-profile items. Colbert often reminds his viewers that this segment is for "Platinum Members of Colbert Nation Only", and instructs poorer people not to watch the segment.
  • "Alpha Dog of the Week", reviewing the story of someone that displayed leadership over the week. Ironically, the person Colbert normally priases has fallen from grace due to their actions which Colbert approves of. Despite the name of the segment, it does not happen every week.
  • "Monkey on the Lam", a report of an escaped monkey. Noted because of its introduction, which features a monkey riding on the back of a lamb, which Colbert finds amusing.
  • "Stephen Colbert presents Stephen Colbert's Alpha Squad 7: A Tek Jansen Adventure", a short cartoon, whose main character is an idealized space-hero version of Colbert. The cartoon character is voiced by Colbert. The first seven episodes were designed and produced by J.J. Sedelmaier Productions, Inc., the same studio that designed and animated the SPARTINA title card at the end of every Colbert Report show. Reported to be a parody of Bill O'Reilly's novel Those Who Trespass.[12]
  • "Stephen Colbert's Sport Report" (silent "t" in "Sport"), The Report's segment that talks about sports.

Sometimes, there is a "Colbert Report Special Repor-t" (final "t" pronounced with special emphasis), in which Colbert devotes a section of an episode, and sometimes the entire episode to a special subject. The third segment is almost always an interview with a celebrity guest, often an author or government official.[13] The interview is, unlike The Daily Show, conducted at a different table on the set. Viewers applaud as Colbert hammily jogs from his desk to the interview area, where his guest awaits. This is different from the traditional format, in which the guest enters to applause and joins the already seated host. Afterwards, Colbert ends the show by giving some parting words to the audience.

Set

The studio in which The Colbert Report is taped was used for The Daily Show until July 2005. The set for The Colbert Report is called "The Eagle's Nest" and reflects and facilitates Colbert's self-aggrandizing style.[14] The set has two main areas: the desk, from which Colbert hosts most of the show, and the guest interview area to camera right, where his guest for the evening is interviewed. On one wall, above an artificial fireplace, is a portrait of Colbert; it originally showed Colbert standing in front of the same mantel with another portrait of himself. On the show's first anniversary, the portrait was replaced by one of Colbert standing in front of the mantel with the first portrait above it; the original was auctioned off at a charity event[15] and currently hangs in the Sticky Fingers restaurant in Colbert's native Charleston.[16] Colbert claimed that the portrait will be changed every year to add another level of depth. On October 17, 2007, the portrait was removed and replaced with a new one that followed an identical pattern, but changed Colbert's placement in the foreground. is the 290th day of the year (291st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

As of January 16, 2008, the current "3-deep" Colbert portrait has been placed on display "right between the bathrooms near the 'America's Presidents' exhibit" at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. [17] After first being rejected by the National Museum of American History, Colbert petitioned the Smithsonian to display his portrait, who agreed to "go along with the joke," though they stress that it is only temporary. Colbert said "I don't mean to brag, but as it contains three portraits. My portrait has more portraits than any other portrait in the National Portrait Gallery!" The portrait, formerly on display at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC, was then put on display at the Smithsonian until April 13.

The graphics used throughout the show and the studio itself are saturated with American flags, Bald Eagles, Captain America's shield, and other patriotic imagery.[18] The set contains many references to Colbert, and on the show's first episode he pointed out several examples: his name, initials and the name of the show appear on the desk's plasma screen, on the rafters above the desk, and the desk itself is shaped like a giant "C".[14] In an interview with The A.V. Club, Colbert explained that much of the design for the set was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper. "All the architecture of that room points at Jesus' head, the entire room is a halo", Colbert said. "On the set, I'd like the lines of the set to converge on my head. And so if you look at the design, it all does, it all points at my head...there's a sort of sun-god burst quality about the set around me."[19] On the floor to the front stage right of his desk there is an Eagle's nest, and a tape outline of where he injured his wrist, akin to those seen at murder scenes.

Writers' strike

Production of new episodes was suspended on November 5, 2007 due to the Writers Guild of America strike, although a live untaped performance called The Colbert Report - On Strike! took place on December 3, 2007, with proceeds going towards show staffers.[21] The show returned on January 7, 2008, without the writing staff. Upon the show's return, Colbert modified the pronunciation of the show's name, using hard Ts (/koʊlbɵɹt ɹəpɔɹt/); a similar move was made by The Daily Show which returned to air as A Daily Show. On February 13, in honor of the end of the strike, the original names of both shows were restored. is the 309th day of the year (310th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

During the strike, Colbert stopped performing the customary "table of contents" that usually precedes the opening titles, as well as other regular written segments such as The Wørd. As a member of the Writers Guild of America, Colbert was barred from writing any material for the show himself which his writers would ordinarily write.[22] As a result, Colbert conducted more guest interviews, although several people turned down invitations to cross the picket line to appear on the show, including Katrina van den Heuvel and Naomi Klein.[23] At one stage, Colbert lashed out at fellow late night host Conan O'Brien, who had also recently returned to air without his writers, for claiming to have made presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. In response, Jon Stewart, Colbert's former Daily Show colleague, claimed that he had introduced O'Brien to the public on his earler show, and thus, by his logic, Stewart was responsible for Huckabee's success. This sparked a briefly recurring mock feud between Colbert, O'Brien and Stewart — during which they appeared on each other's shows — which culminated in a three-way brawl on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on February 4, 2008.[24] Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) is a labor union representing writers of television and film and employees of television and radio news. ...

Stephen Colbert (character)

The Stephen Colbert character is a semi-fictional character portrayed by comedian and actor Stephen Colbert. The character is a caricature of news pundits such as Stone Phillips, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Geraldo Rivera, whose shows focus on "bluster and personality".[9][4] Colbert's character, a "well-intentioned, poorly informed, high-status idiot", is right-wing, egomaniacal, fact-averse, God-fearing, and super-patriotic. He claims to be an independent who is often mistaken for a Republican, but uniformly despises liberals and generally agrees with the actions and decisions of George W. Bush and the Republican Party. This is evidenced by one of the questions that he asks of many of his guests: "George W. Bush: great President, or the greatest President?"[25] Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A.

The character's self-aggrandizing style includes frequent promotion of an extensive range of fictional merchandising and products, including perfumes, sci-fi novels, medications, his own "man seed", and other products, all of which are either produced or endorsed by Colbert. He has also convinced his viewers, whom he addresses as "the Colbert Nation", to vote for him in various public naming polls: the mascot of the Saginaw Spirit, an Ontario Hockey League team has been named after him.[26] Science fiction is a form of speculative fiction principally dealing with the impact of imagined science and technology, or both, upon society and persons as individuals. ...

Colbert's character has been described as a "caustic right-wing bully".[8] On the interview segment of the show, Colbert frequently attempts to "nail" his guest by using various rhetorical devices, and often logical fallacies, to prove them wrong.[27] Despite his bluster, Colbert's character suffers from arctophobia, the fear of bears, which he refers to as "giant, marauding, godless killing machines."[28] This bear phobia was inspired by Colbert's real-life fear of bears as a child.[27] Colbert refers to Bill O'Reilly as "Papa Bear", a title with a double meaning, considering Colbert's hatred of bears.[29] Colbert displays fear and suspicion of nearly any animal and is quick to declare they are "training" to attack humanity. He is also highly distrustful of technology, particularly robots.[30] Over the months of May and July in 2007, Colbert begged Apple to give him a free iPhone, and finally received one in July. Once he received it, however, he claimed the phone knew so much about him that he had become virtually dependent on it, and that the iPhone itself was a threat.[30] Colbert also despises the "liberal media," the New York Times in particular, but applauds conservative media such as Fox News on a regular basis.[31] In rhetoric, a rhetorical device or resource of language is a technique that an author or speaker uses to evoke an emotional response in his audience (his reader(s) or listener(s)).

Recurring themes

The Colbert Report presents various recurring themes that help define the show.


Truthiness

Stephen Colbert announces that "The Wørd" of the night is truthiness, during the premiere episode of The Colbert Report.
Stephen Colbert announces that "The Wørd" of the night is truthiness, during the premiere episode of The Colbert Report.
Main article: Truthiness

In "The Wørd" segment of the first episode of the Report, Colbert featured the term truthiness, defined as "the quality by which one purports to know something emotionally or instinctively, without regard to evidence or intellectual examination." Colbert said that, "I don't trust books, they're all fact, no heart. And that's exactly what's pulling our country apart today. Let's face it folks, we are a divided nation… between those who think with their head and those who know with their heart."[32] In December 2005, the New York Times selected truthiness as one of nine words that captured the zeitgeist of the year, and in January 2006, the American Dialect Society announced that truthiness was selected as its 2005 Word of the Year.[33] Image File history File links Colbert-truthiness. ...

Colbert has made frequent reference to the spread of the word truthiness since he introduced it, while carping on media accounts of truthiness that neglect to identify him as its source.[31] Truthiness has since been discussed, sometimes repeatedly, in the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Chicago Tribune, Newsweek, MSNBC, National Public Radio, the Associated Press, Editor & Publisher, Salon, The Huffington Post, ABC NewsRadio's Word Watch with Kel Richards and Chicago Reader, and on ABC's Nightline, CBS' 60 Minutes, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. In January 2006, truthiness was featured as a Word of the Week by the website of the Macmillan English Dictionary.[34] In December of the same year, Merriam-Webster announced that "truthiness" had been voted by visitors to its website to be the #1 Word of the Year for 2006.[35] On August 27, 2006, the Global Language Monitor named truthiness and wikiality — both coined by Colbert on The Colbert Report — as the top television buzzwords of 2006.[36][37] The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ... ...

Relation to The O'Reilly Factor

The Stephen Colbert character and The Colbert Report are generally parodies of Bill O'Reilly and The O'Reilly Factor. New episodes of The Colbert Report are scheduled in the same time slot as rebroadcasts of The O'Reilly Factor, while Colbert rebroadcasts are scheduled during new O'Reilly shows.[38] When O'Reilly appeared on The Daily Show before the second episode of The Colbert Report aired, he commented, "Before we get started, somebody told me walking in here, you got some French guy on after you making fun of me?", and made several references in the following interview to 'the French Guy'.[39][40] In a subsequent Newsweek interview, O'Reilly said that he "feels it's a compliment" to have Colbert parody him because Colbert "isn't mean-spirited" and does not "use [his] platform to injure people." Later, Colbert replied on-air, "I like you too. In fact, if it wasn't for you, this show wouldn't exist."[4] Image File history File linksMetadata Size of this preview: 256 × 192 pixelsFull resolution (256 × 192 pixel, file size: 27 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Stephen Colbert appearing on the OReilly Factor, on Fox News. ...

The Colbert Report features a commentary segment called "The Wørd", similar to O'Reilly's "Talking Points Memo". Like the "Memo", "The Wørd" features the commentator asserting a political point of view with a text screen graphic next to him. However, while O'Reilly's text serves to emphasize his points, Colbert's text generally serves as an ironic counterpoint to his character's position. Other segments that can be juxtaposed with The O'Reilly Factor are The Colbert Report's Inbox (compared to O'Reilly's "Factor Mail"); Stephen Colbert's Balls for Kidz which, unlike The Factor's "Children at Risk", tends to portray messages and lessons typically considered unsuitable for children; and That's The Craziest F#?king Thing I've Ever Heard, which is comparable to O'Reilly's "The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day". Additionally, Colbert parodies O'Reilly's references to his program as the "no spin zone" by inviting viewers of his show to "take a spin in the no fact zone."[41] O'Reilly and Colbert each appeared as a guest on the other's show on January 18, 2007. O'Reilly seemed to regret this "crossover" before his time on The Colbert Report was through, stating as the audience reacted badly to him that it was "a huge mistake, me coming on here."[28] (As a souvenir, Colbert "stole" a microwave from the O'Reilly green room—in fact, he informed O'Reilly of his intention to take the microwave beforehand—later displaying it on his own show. He later sent over a replacement microwave, emblazoned with The Colbert Report logo.)

Greenscreen challenges

On the August 10, 2006 episode, Stephen Colbert was shown wielding a lightsaber in front of a greenscreen, a parody of the Star Wars Kid internet phenomenon.[42] This was done as part of the "Better Know A District" segment, when Colbert visited California's 6th congressional district, the home of Star Wars creator George Lucas. The greenscreen footage was subsequently edited by fans and their results were posted on the Internet, primarily the website YouTube.[43] Colbert featured some of these clips on the August 21 episode and issued the "Greenscreen Challenge" to the public — a contest to create the best video from footage shown in the August 10 episode. Lucas himself made an appearance on the October 11 episode to showcase his entry.[15] is the 222nd day of the year (223rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

When indie rock band The Decemberists shot a music video for their single "O Valencia!" in front of a green screen and asked fans to complete the video, Colbert accused them of copying his idea, and started his second green screen challenge, which called for fans to edit Stephen Colbert into The Decemberists unfinished music video. In response, The Decemberists challenged Colbert to a guitar solo challenge.[44] For a few weeks, the upcoming contest, which Colbert titled "Rock and Awe: Countdown to Guitarmageddon" ("The I-Rock War: Cut and Strum" and "The Axeman Cometh: Mourning Becomes Electric" were announced as alternate titles; Colbert added that he would find and fire the English major on his staff who created the latter title), became a focus of the show. On December 20, 2006, Chris Funk, lead guitarist for The Decemberists, came on the show for the guitar solo challenge. Once Funk finished playing, Colbert arrived on stage with a five-necked guitar belonging to Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick. Colbert played two notes, pretended to cut his hand, and insisted that he could no longer play, so Peter Frampton played a solo in Colbert's place. A panel of three judges, New York governor Eliot Spitzer, Rock critic Anthony DeCurtis, and chairman of the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at New York University, Jim Anderson, voted to determine the best solo. DeCurtis voted for the Colbert/Frampton team, Anderson voted for Funk, and Spitzer withdrew himself from judging as Colbert tried to bribe him during the commercial break. The deciding vote was given to Henry Kissinger, who had briefly appeared earlier in the show. Kissinger said that the American people had won, at which point Colbert declared himself the winner.[45] As a prize, Colbert received The Crane Wife, The Decemberists' new album, saying "The Crane Wife by the Decemberists?

Wrist violence and fictional addiction

On July 26, 2007, Colbert broke his left wrist while performing his warm-up for the show.[46] Following the accident Colbert launched a new section of the show entitled "Wrist Watch", featuring news stories about wrists during which Colbert attacks what he sees as Hollywood's glamorization of "wrist violence". Colbert wants to see all violent actions against wrists removed from Hollywood films, and also attacks actors who glamorize it, for example, Steven Seagal.[47] On August 8, Colbert created the "Wriststrong" wrist band, based on Lance Armstrong's "Livestrong" wrist band, in a hope to increase awareness of wrist violence.[48] Colbert also orders those wearing the wrist bands to give them to anyone they see who is more famous than themselves. Colbert made the wristbands available to buy on colbertnation.com, and announced that all proceeds raised by the sales of the wrist bands would be given to the Yellow Ribbon Fund.[49] is the 207th day of the year (208th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Colbert has given bracelets to Katie Couric who promised to wear it on The CBS Evening News. Colbert accused Couric as a "betrayer" when she appeared on air without the wristband. Colbert then gave a bracelet to news anchor Brian Williams, who was expected to pass it to news anchor Matt Lauer. However, after a substitute appeared in place for Lauer on The Today Show, Colbert quickly launched a segment entitled "Where in the World is Matt Lauer's Wriststrong Bracelet?" Colbert asked any fan that sees Lauer wearing the bracelet to take a picture and send it in. On September 14, 2007, The Colbert Report aired footage of Lauer wearing the "Wriststrong" bracelet on The Today Show.

Besides his attempts to increase wrist awareness, Colbert had also started taking (and subsequently become addicted to) painkillers (which were revealed to be SweeTarts on a close up) to deal with his injury, taking an absurd amount nearly every episode since the accident. Colbert stated "I'm supposed to take these, 'take one once a'...my vision's blurring, I can't read [the bottle]...oh, I'm gonna say once a minute". On August 13, Colbert ran out of pills and experienced withdrawal symptoms of irritability and hallucinations, which were only quelled once he found and eagerly consumed two pills on the floor behind his desk. Colbert's addiction is apparently a reference to right-wing AM radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh's addiction to the prescription opioid analgesics oxycodone and hydrocodone.

Colbert convinced a number of well-known figures to autograph his cast, including Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City; CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric; Bill O'Reilly, host of FOX's The O'Reilly Factor; Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of U.S. House of Representatives; Tim Russert, host of NBC's Meet The Press; Tony Snow, former White House Press Secretary; and NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. On August 23 Colbert had his cast removed on the show.[50] It was announced that Colbert would auction off his cast for the Yellow Ribbon Fund on eBay. The auction began after Colbert's show on August 23.[51] Within minutes of the auction's start, bidding quickly rose to over $71,000. However, many bids were canceled because bidders failed to get pre-approved by the seller (which is required in the auction). It was sold for $17,200.[52] The buyer was revealed to be johncdmiller, but because they had no picture of him, a picture of a superhero-type character (a combination of Robin Hood, Captain America, and Jesus) was used instead. Following the broadcast, the show went on a brief break, and following its return on September 10, Colbert claimed that, with help from a court order and rehab over the break, he had kicked his addiction.[53] However, on September 13, Colbert, fearing a similar loss to Tony Bennett at the 2007 Emmys as he did to Barry Manilow in 2006, hinted he may experience a relapse as a ploy to garner votes. He did indeed lose to Bennett. However, on the January 16, 2008 edition of the show, during an interview, he stated "Yeah, and I'm not addicted to pills; I just like the taste of Vicodin," most likely referring to his "addiction."

On January 23, 2008, Colbert encouraged his viewers to buy WristStrong bracelets to send to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Although Brady had actually injured his ankle, Colbert claimed, "that the ankle is just the wrist of the foot."[54] He then talked to the head of the Yellow Ribbon Fund, Marie Wood. He presented her a check for the money raised by WristStrong bracelet sales, totaling $171,525.

Recurring characters

Tim Meadows as P.K. Winsome digitally inserted into the audience at a State of the Union Address
  • P.K. Winsome has had multiple appearances on The Colbert Report as a political commentator, entrepreneur, and black Republican[56] (the "P" and "K" believed to stand for "Percy Kittens", which was the name of Tim Meadow's character on Strangers With Candy, which also starred Stephen Colbert). He is played by former Saturday Night Live cast member Tim Meadows.[57]
  • Luis is Colbert's Nicaraguan bookie, whom he has mentioned several times. On the April 26, 2007 episode, Colbert laments the loss of his turtle, Stephanie Colbertle the Turtle, in the Great Turtle Race. He says, "Of course I'm upset, as is my Nicaraguan bookie, Luis. Te voy a dar tu dinero Luis. I just need a week, amigo. And I need my thumbs."[58]
  • Russ Lieber is a satirical liberal radio talk show host from Madison, Wisconsin and nemesis of Colbert. He is ultra-sensitive to political correctness, and often worries that his own words might be misconstrued as offensive. Lieber, played by David Cross, has often appeared on the show to debate. As he is a liberal Jewish radio host from the Upper Midwest, Lieber appears to be a satirical take on Al Franken.[59]
  • Tad is the building manager, portrayed by Paul Dinello. Generally, he has hosted special segments, such as the building's fire drill. Other segments include his visit to a bank auction for Randy "Duke" Cunningham's assets and his trip to Colbert County, Alabama, to open The Stephen Colbert Museum and Gift Shop.[60]
  • Bobby is a stage manager, played by writer Eric Drysdale. He frequently is called upon to do degrading things or to answer questions from Colbert. Bobby is also responsible for keeping track of the whereabouts of Colbert's "son", Stephen Jr.[61]. On the April 21 2008 show, it was insinuated that Stephen had eaten Bobby during a commercial break.
  • Killer is a member of Colbert's staff, a large man who never speaks. Due to his constant scowl, threatening stare, and probable criminal history, he is the only staff member that Colbert is afraid to abuse. He has also been described by Colbert as a "Demolitions Expert".
  • Jimmy has only been seen and heard on the show once (in different episodes), though Colbert frequently asks him to put up videos and graphics, a reference to the show's director, Jim Hoskinson.
  • Meg is a female intern. When the Democratic Party swept the House and Senate elections of 2006, Colbert characterized the result as a victory for the terrorists, and showed Meg wearing a burqa. Earlier in that same episode, to prove that the show was indeed live, Colbert demanded Meg have sex with him or be fired. Meg later appeared during Colbert's homage to legendary Swedish Director Ingmar Bergman, during which her mysterious appearance leaves Colbert concerned and distraught. In a later episode, when Stephen asks her to count pencils, she mentions that she has filed more than five complaints against him.
  • Wilford Brimley is Colbert's "Spiritual Advisor" with whom he frequently has phone conversations. These conversations usually take place in the middle of the night, with Colbert only half-awake, and end up with Brimley (voiced by Colbert) going off on angry go-nowhere tangents that he usually blames on his bout with "The Diabeetus".
  • Esteban Colberto is a Cuban version of Colbert. He can be seen with two beautiful girls dancing around him whom he refers to only as "Chicas", and summons and dismisses them on command. He has been featured in an exhibit of "The Wørd" (whereas it is referred to as "La Palabra") and on Colbert's coverage of President George W. Bush's visit to Latin America.[62]
  • Alan is Colbert's ex-"black friend." Colbert demoted him to "black acquaintance" after seeing him march in an anti-war demonstration. Since Alan's demotion, Colbert has been searching for a new Black Friend but has been unsuccessful thus far. Alan is played by comedian Jordan Carlos.[63]
  • Professor Fingers is a homeless man who is mentioned as Colbert's "protégé" from time to time. This mention is usually accompanied by a picture of 'The Professor' howling madly.
  • Eliza is a poor, apparently English orphan who acts as Colbert's camera person on occasion. She is typically referenced by Colbert as "practically being a slave."
  • Dr. Jerald Vizzone is Stephen Colbert's doctor who appeared on the show shortly after Colbert's wrist breaking. He showed X-rays of Colbert's wrist and explained its (non)seriousness, and, in a later appearance, removed Colbert's cast on the air. Whenever Dr. Vizzone appears, he is accompanied by music and dancing medical interns, and is allowed to greet the crowd in a fashion that only Colbert himself is normally allowed to do.[64]
  • Gorlock is an alien who is only seen on the side bar. He is Colbert's attorney, financial advisor, and stock broker. Colbert thinks he might be a Scientologist because he "talks about spaceships a lot." Gorlock supposedly comes from the future and Colbert was not happy when he did not alert Colbert of the large fall in the Nasdaq because he was supposed to have remembered a large slide like that.
  • Benjamin Franklin (played by Ralph Archbold) makes appearances in the show, despite being dead in real life (Franklin, not Archbold). He first appeared in a "Better Know a District" spin-off called "Better Know a Founder". He appeared again as a recurring character when The Colbert Report toured in Philadelphia.

Tom DeLay Legal Defense Trust

In May 2006, the Tom DeLay Legal Defense Trust posted a video of The Colbert Report on its website and sent out a mass email urging DeLay supporters to watch how "Hollywood liberal" Robert Greenwald "crashed and burned . . . when promoting his new attack on Tom DeLay."[70] The video featured Colbert asking questions such as, "Who hates America more, you or Michael Moore?"[71] The Trust's email describes its content as "the truth behind Liberal Hollywood's" film about DeLay, and characterizes the Colbert Report clip with the headline, "Colbert Cracks the Story on Real Motivations Behind the Movie." On June 8, 2006, Colbert responded by conducting an "Exclusive Fake Interview" on his show with DeLay. Three different interviews with DeLay on different networks were spliced for humorous effect, and Colbert ended the "interview" by saying "I do hope you enjoyed my manipulation of your words."

Other honors

Colbert has received several other honors and distinctions. Colbert announced on his March 29, 2006 show that he had been contacted by San Francisco Zoo officials seeking his permission to name an unhatched bald eagle after him.[80] The eagle, affectionately dubbed "Stephen Jr." on The Report, was bred to be reintroduced into the wild, as a part of the zoo's California Bald Eagle Breeding Program. Colbert celebrated the chick's birth on the April 17, 2006, program, and has since given updates on the bird's development. He has criticized the bird for migrating to Canada, and has attempted to lure him back to the U.S., but as of June 2007, Colbert claims the two are still estranged.

Hungarian bridge campaign

Colbert refers to Miklós Zrínyi in promoting the bridge contest.

In 2006, the Ministry of Transport of Hungary launched an online call for public suggestions to name a future motorway bridge over the Danube, just north of Budapest. Ministry officials said the Hungarian Geographical Name Committee would choose from among the three submitted candidates with the most votes, guided by suggestions submitted by "local governments, cartographers, linguists, and other experts".[93] Users offered hundreds of suggestions, among them the "'You Can Go To Bratislava But Not Over This Bridge' Bridge" and the "Chuck Norris Bridge", which led in votes for some time.[94] Colbert noted the effort in his "Tip of the hat, wag of the finger" segment on August 9,[95] and in the following weeks, he continued to ask viewers to vote for him. On August 22, Hungarian news sites reported Colbert had won the first round of voting, with 17,231,724 votes.[6] Hungary changed the voting rules after the members of the Colbert Nation Forums developed a bot to stuff the ballot box, requiring registration to vote in the second phase. That night, Colbert asked his viewers to cease their efforts,[96] and offered apologies,[96] spending a segment honoring Hungary, its history and its contributions to the world.[97] Schematic path of the M0 ringroad The Megyeri Bridge, previously known as the Northern M0 Danube bridge, is a new cable-stayed road bridge currently under construction that will span the River Danube between Buda and Pest, the west and east sides of Budapest, the capital of Hungary, respectively. ...

On September 24, 2006 Colbert introduced his guest András Simonyi, Ambassador of the Republic of Hungary to the United States. The ambassador presented Mr. Colbert with a declaration certifying him as the winner of the second and final round of voting. The document bore the signatures of Hungarian government officials and the country's official seal.[98] Included in the text, as read by the ambassador, were two important conditions required for the name of the bridge to be made official. First, Colbert must be fluent in Hungarian. Colbert responded by pronouncing the Hungarian name Nicholas Zrinyi (incorrectly referring to Miklós Zrínyi) and híd (meaning 'bridge' in Hungarian); Simonyi quickly certified him as fluent.[99] Secondly, Colbert must be dead. Colbert protested, but the ambassador presented him with a Hungarian passport and 10,000 Hungarian Forint (HUF), noting that this would allow Colbert to enter Hungary at any time, without restriction. He also brought attention to the portrait of King St. Stephen, the first King of Hungary, on the 10,000 HUF bill. Finally Simonyi implied that the question of Colbert's ineligibility by virtue of being alive might be resolved if Colbert were to accept an invitation to visit the bridge site in Budapest; Colbert responded by trying to bribe the ambassador with the 10,000 HUF bill.[99] On September 28, 2006, it was announced that the bridge will be named "Megyeri Bridge", although the name did not make it to the second round. According to the Geographical Name Committee, the name was selected because the bridge connects Káposztásmegyer with Békásmegyer.[100] is the 267th day of the year (268th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Congressional response

In response to the 'Better Know a District' segment, Rahm Emanuel, the Democratic Caucus chair, instructed incoming freshmen not to do appearances on the show.[7] Colbert responded by issuing an "Editing Challenge" on his March 26, 2007 broadcast. The challenge directs viewers to the Colbert Nation website to obtain an extended interview with Colbert, conducted by Gwen Ifill, which viewers may then edit to make him look as ridiculous as the representatives.[101] However, The Colbert Report has never followed through on the contest, with not one entry being aired and no further reference to the contest ever being made on the show. This is despite dozens, if not hundreds, of entries posted on YouTube. Rahm Emanuel (born November 29, 1959) is an American politician. ...

Neologisms

The Colbert Report has created new words. Besides "Truthiness", Colbert has coined other terms including "Freem", which is "Freedom without the do, because I do it all for you."[102] Other words include: "Eneagled", a blend of "enabled" and "eagle", thus meaning "to be given the characteristics of an eagle" and "Mantasy", meaning male fantasies, such as running away from the wife to become free, a word to which Colbert claims to hold a trademark.[103] Stephen Colbert announces that The Wørd of the night is truthiness, during the premiere episode of The Colbert Report. ...

Wikiality featured as "The Wørd" on July 31, 2006.

Colbert has made repeated references on the show to Wikipedia, which he refers to as his favorite website, generally in "The Wørd" segment. Colbert's first reference to Wikipedia was on the July 31, 2006 broadcast, when "The Wørd" was Wikiality, defined as the concept that "together we can create a reality that we all agree on — the reality we just agreed on."[104] He explained that on Wikipedia "any user can change any entry, and if enough users agree with them, it becomes true." He also told them to go onto Wikipedia, in the article elephants, and to edit it so that it would say: Elephant population in Africa has tripled over the past six months (that article was under semi-protection and could not be edited by anonymous or new user accounts, but someone with an account did change the entry to match what Colbert had said).

Other "Wørds" invented relating to Wikipedia include "Wikilobbying", regarding which Colbert explained "when money determines Wikipedia entries, reality has become a commodity", alluding to a case in which Microsoft allegedly hired someone to tamper with Wikipedia,[105] and "Self-determination", where corporations are allowed to act out their fantasies online by editing their own Wikipedia entries. Colbert described Wikipedia as, "Second Life for corporations", saying if a corporation wants to pretend to be someone else online, then that is their business.[106] Microsoft Corporation, (NASDAQ: MSFT, HKSE: 4338) is a multinational computer technology corporation with global annual revenue of US$44. ...

On May 24, 2007, the guest was Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia. Stephen Colbert called Wikipedia a "battlefield for information", a tool which "brings democracy to information" and moves away from the views of the "elite who study things and got to say what is or is not real." During the interview, Colbert showed a sentence on the screen: "Librarians are hiding something", which Wales could not see, with the implication that Wales could not stop a critical mass of individuals from editing a page according to the dictates of one influential individual. Wales responded that "the interesting thing about The Colbert Report is that Wikipedians watch it."[107] is the 144th day of the year (145th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

2006 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Colbert made a speech during the 2006 White House Correspondents Association Dinner, performing as his character. His speech "praised" George W. Bush and the media in general. Bush and his wife Laura were sitting a few yards away from him.[108] During his speech, Colbert made several comments about Bush, including: Stephen Colbert at the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner On April 29, 2006, American comedian Stephen Colbert appeared as the featured entertainer at the 2006 White House Correspondents Association Dinner, which was held in Washington, D.C., at the Hilton Washington hotel. ...

"I stand by this man. I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers, and rubble, and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message: that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound — with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world."[109]

"I believe the government that governs best is the government that governs least. And by these standards, we have set up a fabulous government in Iraq."[110]

During the speech, several of Bush's supporters and aides walked out in protest, with one aide saying of the president that he had "that look that he's ready to blow."[111]


Running for President in 2008

Main article: Stephen Colbert presidential campaign, 2008

On October 16, 2007, Colbert announced on The Report that he would be running for president. He had chosen no vice-president, though he was considering choosing Vladimir Putin, Mike Huckabee, or himself as his running mate.[112] Also, he was only running in South Carolina, his home state. Another oddity of his campaign is the fact that he was contemplating running for both the Republican and Democratic parties as "a favorite son".[113][114] Colbert covered his story in the segment "The Hail to the Cheese Stephen Colbert NachoCheese Doritos 2008 Presidential Campaign Coverage", and promoted his campaign on special election website, colbert08.org, as under law he cannot use colbertnation.com.[115] Stephen Colbert at Knox College. ... is the 289th day of the year (290th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

I Am America (And So Can You!)

Main article: I Am America (And So Can You!)

A "pure extension" of the show in book form, titled I Am America (And So Can You!), was released on October 9, 2007. Written by Stephen Colbert and the Colbert Report writers, the book covers Colbert's opinions on a wide array of topics that he has no time to address on the show. Red margin notes appear throughout the book, providing humorous reactions and counterpoints to Colbert's arguments in a style comparable to the Report's Wørd segment. The book draws some influence from the literary endeavors of the character's pundit models, such as Bill O'Reilly's The O'Reilly Factor (2000) and Sean Hannity's Deliver Us From Evil (2004), which Colbert says he "forced" himself to read as a reference.[121] I Am America (And So Can You!) is a satirical autobiography by Stephen Colbert, an American comedian and actor. ...

Colbert Report City - Wikiality, the Truthiness Encyclopedia for Colbert's Heroes (1159 words)
Colbert Report City is a city in the U.S. state of Utah and is the capital of the Colbert Nation.
Almost immediately, Colbert and his faith were besieged by the liberal media, who charged that Stephenological Colbertism was nothing more than a "Cult of Personality", and that it's followers were just a relection of a larger "Idiot Culture", which they alleged had taken root in society.
Colbert was condemned as a hypocrite by the liberal Jew establishment of the City of New York, and his character was thoroughly assassinated.
Cavenger - The Colbert Report (2443 words)
The Colbert Report first appeared in the form of three fake commercials for itself that aired several times on The Daily Show, although the themes that would form the basis for the Report can be seen in some of the earlier bits performed by Colbert.
Before hosting The Colbert Report, Colbert was the host of a fictional "Sunday morning chat show," The Colbert Gang, a parody of the CNN program The Capital Gang, which appeared in a segment called "Corporate Slogans" on the Daily Show.
Colbert has since made frequent reference to the widespread influence of truthiness since he introduced it, while carping on media accounts of truthiness that neglect to identify him as its source.
