After a rebel rancher refusing to pay grazing rights was revealed to be a racist, Comedy Central’s faux conservative Stephen Colbert completely eviscerates truly conservative cable news host Sean Hannity for coddling the rancher.
Hannity later called the rancher’s words “despicable” and Fox News hardly recognizes the grazing rights story it was pounding for days.
Of course, Cliven Bundy had to rephrase things, too. It only got worse on CNN.
This is as good as political parody gets on TV. Colbert is slated to replace David Letterman on CBS next year.
As Colbert prepares to leave his cable hell, he makes a farewell appearance on the show that launched his career.
