reddit user katiecsaylor posted this touching photo of her younger sister with Stephen Colbert, taken before Wednesday night’s show. Having recently lost their father to cancer, katiecsaylor’s sister wrote Stephen a letter explaining that she and her father watched the show every night together before he passed away. In the letter, she also included one of the bracelets that she started marking to raise money for the American Cancer Society, which Stephen has worn every night for the past three months. At 11 years old, she was too young to be apart of the studio audience, but Stephen invited her to the show nonetheless, where she watched back stage. To make him feel better about losing his mother, she also gave Stephen a stuffed eagle, which he named after her and put on his desk. (Thank you to StephenSmile64 and Clem for the Tip!)

Hubster Mel is completing a thesis examining ‘The Political Impact of “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report“‘, and is on the look out for people to participate in a survey as part of her research.
Thesis Statement: I will examine how ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ are crossing the line between satirical observation and political action. Therefore I will analyze the different approaches of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in terms of political coverage, the satirical framework of ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’, the evolution of the shows and their political importance. Additionally, I will conduct two case studies: Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC and Jon Stewart’s impact on ‘The 9/11 First Responders Bill’.
Since the audience plays an essential role in the shows’ success, I hope that as many viewers/fans as possible will fill out my survey.
The survey is completely anonymous and will take appox. 3-5 minutes to fill out: [Link]
