On “The Colbert Report” this week, Stephen Colbert responded to a study that found his viewers were better informed about campaign finance than viewers of the major news networks. “I did a better job informing the public about campaign finance reform than every other news organization. And CNN,” Colbert joked.
Interestingly enough, Colbert played clips poking fun at all the major news networks except for his future home, CBS. The CBS logo was also excluded from an over-the-shoulder graphic displaying all the broadcast and cable networks’ logos.
“I never intended to be an educator. What’s next, getting paid like one?” Colbert said. “…Clearly I must work harder at informing you less.” Watch:
