Colbert Report

Mae's Days

Today a friend mentioned to me that on American TV recently (2006-10-10 to be specific), the Colbert Report featured several big-name feminists as guests.

Naturally, I had to find a copy to watch. 🙂 Now, I don’t watch this show normally, so I don’t know what it’s usually like. But I have to say, he seemed unusually rude towards them, constantly cutting them off when they try to say something.

Maybe that’s normal for him… I dunno… or maybe it’s intentional, the show pretends to have a positive focus on women, then negates it by the host being rude and dominating towards them at the same time. All the same, the only part I really liked was watching him try to walk in high heels. 🙂

  1. Oiy, was just passing through and saw your commentary on the colbert report. The whole idea of the show is that he spoofs major right wing conservatives by acting the part, and in so doing, reveals the absurdity of the stance. So him cutting off the women wasn't reflective of his views but using his character to satirize the relationship of the right wing to feminists.

  2. The Colbert Report is a spoof of stupid cable news like The O'Reily Factor. It's all an elaborate joke. He acts like they do in a lampooning fashion.
    In reality, Stephen Colbert is a very liberal guy, and ideologically would agree with feminist virtues.
