Did You Know?

Trivia:
On March 12, 2007, shortly after Colbert reported on the in-universe death of superhero Captain America, Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada sent Captain America's shield to the show, saying he had left it to Colbert in his "will". It has appeared as a prop on the set ever since.See more »
Quotes:
Mike Mark Carrion:[Stephen is calling the Humane Society after they were "livid" about his hatred of bears] Hello, this is Mike Mark Carrion.
Stephen Colbert:Mike, I want to know who to give my anger to.
Mike Mark Carrion:What seems to be the problem?
Stephen Colbert:This is Stephen Colbert from The Colbert Report. It says here in The Philadelphia Inquirer that your organization, quote "was livid" about an episode of my show. Is this true?
Mike Mark Carrion:Well, we're livid about the trophy hunting of bears in New Jersey, which-which...
Stephen Colbert:The Philadelphia Inquirer says here that you are livid about the episode. Are they lying or are you lying?
Mike Mark Carrion:We were livid that people killed nearly 300 bears for trophies last December in New Jersey.
Stephen Colbert:Are you aware that bears are Godless killing machines?
Mike Mark Carrion:Bears are not killing machines.
Stephen Colbert:But you will admit that they are Godless?

Colbert Report, 10 March 2006
Author: Nora-65 from United States

Funny to the bone. I adore the show, Steven is so appealing. My husband and I plan our evening around the Report. I cant take the news any more, it's so depressing, frustrating and totally black (the "regular" news creates bias just through how they word things - it's just inherent in language). However, both the Colbert Report and Daily show inform me while satirizing. It's a winning combination. I think Steven Colbert is brilliant. He is one of the writers for the show and all the writers seem super imaginative and right on target. His delivery is usually mesmerizing. I think this show appeals to a wide age range. I'm in my late 50s and I think there may be a younger demographic in general for Colbert. Maybe it's more of an attitude that we have in common. The show is like O'Reilly on luminescently clear hallucinogens. Steven maintains a double approach: faking a right punch, but actually hits with the left. He has appeal to clear-thinking logical folks who also love to laugh. How else can we get through this madness except with comedy?
