Although the Comedy Central super-duo of Colbert and Stewart approach their political commentary with a healthy dose of satire, between the two of them, they just might be the hardest-hitting political reporters many Americans will see during this election cycle. For close to a year, now, Colbert, particularly, has had an ongoing feature to shine a light on super PACs. In order to make his point more effectively, he’s gone as far as to create a super PAC, which ran an advertising campaign promoting Colbert as a candidate during the recent South Carolina Republican primary election.
Sadly, the same can’t be said for CNN or MSNBC or Fox. This isn’t to say that these news networks don’t cover issues like this, but I really don’t see them going after issues with the tenacity and vigor that Colbert and Stewart demonstrate.
On the other hand, I guess there’s always SNL, isn’t there?
