TV host Stephen Colbert took orders from Clinton Foundation

We already know that the MSM, including the major TV news networks, are blatantly biased in favor of Democrats and against conservatives.

But it’s not just TV news. Studies show that Americans, especially millennials, increasingly get their news from late night TV talk shows.

What if I were to tell you that a major comedian-actor who made his reputation on Comedy Central’s popular news-parody series The Daily Show and now hosts the CBS Late Show, actually took direct orders from the Clinton Foundation?

That would be Stephen Colbert who joined The Daily Show in 1997, then had his own spun-off series The Colbert Report for 9 years, from 2005 to December 2014 when he left Comedy Central to succeed David Letterman as the host of CBS’s The Late Show.

On April 10, 2013, Craig Minassian, Chief Communications Officer of the Clinton Foundation, sent an email to John Podesta to bring attention to two special episdoes of The Colbert Report that he, Minassian, “had them do”:

John,

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!

  • CGI U = the expansion of the Clinton Global Initiative model to to students, universities, and national youth organizations.
  • WJC = William Jefferson Clinton

  4. From his very first airing on SeeBS — Colbert explaining his blood oath and featuring a ‘cursed amulet’ on a goat’s head (but hey, it’s “satire,” right?)

  5. This made my stomach curdle. I hope in time, Cobert has time to sit back and ruminate on all the damage he has done. I don’t know if he has children or not, but he should be ashamed he could be bought so cheaply.
    I hope he finds it all worth it. POS.

  6. Stephen Colbert has always made my flesh CRAWL. He’s not funny, and he’s lost his ability to entertain. (I mean with the Millenial crowd—I never found him entertaining.)
    And yet the man is a Roman Catholic, youngest (I believe) of 11 children.

    • I no longer wonder given we have a (anti)Pope who is a Roman Catholic.

      • Frankenpope is a Roman Catholic in name only, Dr. E.! I honestly believe the man is an UNBELIEVER. Actually, I have GRAVE DOUBTS as to whether ANY Pope since Pius XII has actually believed in the existence of God, and I have to admit, John Paul II had me fooled for many years.
        Catholicism is supposed to be about BELIEF; It IS NOT a “sociological system” or an ideology. I think too many people have forgotten that.

  7. I once watched about 5 minutes of his show,found it utterly devoid of value,and watched the Weather Channel for the rest of the hour. Never went back-who is this idiot again?

  9. Our household will never again buy Stephen Colbert’s special Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor now that we know this.

    • I used to LOVE the “Jimmy Fallon” flavor when it was first introduced;That’s one of those “Save up and maybe get it NEXT Month” deals,and I’ve discovered each one is about 1/3 of a tank of gas for the Harley-priorities,ya know.
