Comedian Stephen Colbert Chides Huffington Post’s Hollywood Bloggers

March 2nd, 2006 9:20 PM

Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” had Arianna Huffington on March 1. Host Stephen Colbert, aping a conservative commentator, had a lot of fun with the liberal proprietor of the Huffington Post. One of the highlights was when Huffington boasted of all the Hollywood types who post at her blog. Colbert, with a total straight face, stated that it was marvelous that celebrities finally had an avenue to voice their opinions (video link to follow).

Huffington: If you want to know what Al Franken, or Nora Ephron, or Larry David, or Steve Martin, or Bill Maher are thinking about anything, right now in real time, go to the Huffington Post…

Colbert: Thank God there is finally a place for Hollywood people to express their views. Because, you know, if the war was any indication, they really can change things! People LOVE hearing what they think about politics.
