Hello, Colbert News Hub! First off I want to apologize that this news section isn’t going to include anything that happens over the weekend, because I’m writing on Friday before flying off to South Carolina for what might be the last beach weekend of the season. Gotta have my priorities.
This week in world news, Britain, Denmark, and Belgium joined the United States in bombing Iraq in an attempt to stop ISIS, while in Africa the Ebola death toll hit 3000. The Iraqi Prime Minister warned that terrorist attacks were being planned against subways in New York (and in Paris), prompting Bill DeBlasio, Andrew Cuomo, and NYC police commissioner William Bratton to ride the subway in defiance (the US has found no evidence of the threat.) You know, the usual uplifting news. On the positive, New York Yankee Derek Jeter finished his home game career with a game-winning single, and there were tears. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin spoke at the Values Voter Summit and got the address of the White House wrong.
Stephen’s guests this week are a chef, an actor, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a journalist. Jon’s are a journalist, an actor, a writer/actress, and a director.
Let us know who you’re excited for, and what you’d like to see covered this week!
