Stephen Colbert changed television- he changed news. He successfully created an alter ego that embedded everything he DIDN’T believe in and used his character as a tool to show America how ignorant, hateful and straight ridiculous politics and people can be.
I remember seeing him have the most conservative, anti-equality guests on his show and how they would quiver in their seats. You could see the fear on their faces– not because Stephen was going to argue with them- -oh no– but because of the sarcastic and extreme nature of his character he would force the guests to face their own ugly truth. Repeating their words back to them but without the political correctness. He is a brave, comedic warrior who shined the light on the injustice and corrupt nature of politics in our country through humor and exaggerated sarcasm that no one could deny.
