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!
Yeah he was definitely pulling for Clinton. Which on a personal level is fine. But on a show with millions of viewers, and him not really covering all of the issues, it's problematic.

Yeah, definitely. Even his DNC episode was more about Trump than the actual DNC. No mention of Clinton's scandals, which were piling up all around her at the time, and I remember a lot of people were calling him out on social media.
I liked John Oliver before the election. He said back in 2015 that he wasn't going to cover the election, than did a complete U-turn when the media started to dog pile on Trump. Everyone I know who used to enjoy his show thinks he's an idiot now.
