Speaking of Fealty...

Colbert Speaks Truth-to-Power at Annual Press Suck-Up-Fest...

What happens when the network and cable news media is so intertwined with the power elites that they can't do their job properly? Well the duties of the fourth estate then seem to fall unto comedians. Perhaps this is why most folks my age and younger see the Daily Show as a viable news source, rather than say the blathering of CNN's Lou Dobbs or Fox's Bill O'Reilly.

Andrew Sullivan reverses course and declares that Colbert's performance at the White House Correspondent's Dinner was in fact, true genius....popping the bubble of fealty around the president created by his subordinates and increasingly respected by so-called journalists.

Despite my ranting, check out Sullivan's thoughts here...
