Hello, Colbert News Hub! Happy winter, apparently. I’ve seen a little bit of snow this week, and am writing this while drinking a gingerbread latte in a very christmas-y Starbucks.
This last week before Thanksgiving promises to be a good one, with Jon Stewart visiting the Colbert Report as a guest for the first time. We also have a smattering of positive news stories in among the awfulness of ISIS killing more hostages and norovirus coming back to cruise ships. My favorite was the Rosetta mission – neither the Daily Show nor the Colbert Report have taken the chance yet to cover the fact that the European Space Agency has managed to land a spaceship on a comet traveling at 40,000 miles per hour. That’s pretty cool, and I hope to see it worked in somehow. An easier target is the fact that today Vladimir Putin became the first to leave Australia’s G20 summit, because he was sleepy. The summit involved much condemnation of his actions in Ukraine, and strengthening of language to combat climate change. It’s unlikely that sleep was really the reason Putin left, but he said that it was and that’s hilarious.
Stephen’s guests this week are a senator, an actress and filmmaker, a novelist, and Jon Stewart! Jon’s guests are a filmmaker and three actors. Let us know in the comments which stories and guests you’re looking forward to!
