Stephen Colbert is one of the most brilliant reporters on this earth today. Along with Jon Stewart, he provides many of Americans their news! Let's face it. People like to laugh. Not sit down and watch "The Situation Room" for hours at a time. Stephen Colbert is a genius, something which kids, as much as adults, should not be deprived of. Besides, if your kids see you laughing at the show, they will laugh at it because they want to be like you! (unless you're a terrible parent and your kids despise you.) They will watch the show and laugh pretending that they understand the jokes. Who knows, maybe they actually will get some of them! Even if they don't, they will be well informed in many of the happenings of the world! Any one who gives a bad review of the Colbert Report or The Daily Show, should really reassess their lives.
