On the heels of the wonderfully-needed recent Colbert interview in Adweek, the magazine has followed up with two additional articles with items that could not be included in the original piece. Stephen discusses having potential sidekicks, plans for his Colbeard, hating being off the air, his ambivalence about sports, and his relief at not having to pretend to be a conservative blowhard anymore. A second article is dedicated to how Jon Stewart is impacting Colbert’s new organization. Enjoy!
Hello hubsters, and Happy New Year! I know we’re already well into January, but, with the holidays and a busy beginning of the year, it took a little bit of extra time to put this December edition together. It’s a really good edition, though! There are some really great articles, and there’s the very special fact-checked ratings myth-busting you’ve all been waiting for. So, let’s get to it!
