On April 10, 2013 Craig Minassian emailed John Podesta instructing him to watch the Colbert Report saying, “I hope you got a chance to see the The Colbert Report’s two special episodes i had them do about CGI U that we taped in St. Louis this weekend. This is the link to last nights with a sketch about commitments and the monologue and WJC interview aired Monday. Hope you enjoy and looking forward to your feedback. Next will be your Colbert appearance!”
Well color me pink, who wooda thunk? - a main stream media outlet does a nice piece on Dodgy Clinton whilst all the time casting insults and jibes in the other direction?

I think this is just showing the collusion between the entertainment/news/politicians.
I wonder what other activities the "gang" is in on?

Did you watch the videos? This wasn't a secret. Also, neither of the Clintons were in government in April of 2013. What this is right here is an attempt by some far-right news blog to sling mud at Colbert and claim that the Colbert Report is "fake news" controlled by the Clintons. To put it as Trump might:
No fake news! No fake news! Colbert Report is fake news!
This isn’t a surprise to anyone who watches Colbert, but it does prove that Colbert is a bias shill who takes instruction from his democrat overlords and is part of the fake news establishment.
Especially Oliver. I noticed he seemed to be shilling a bit there over the summer.

It's so sad to see this happen with Colbert and Stewart. Throw John Oliver in there as well.
No, they're not expected to be journalists. But they're not merely comedians either. People have come to trust them politically ( Stewart mostly ) and have witnessed them point out plenty of dysfunction in Washington.
This time around was a litmus test that they failed. I understand people have jobs they want to keep, but anytime someone steers your narrative you're doing a disservice to the viewers.
I wonder what they would say if they posted here. Colbert? You out there?
