Fresh update on "colbert" discussed on Pat Thurston

"Single item at regular price. Mhm. Good afternoon. I'm Pat Thurston. David Katz is going to be joining us momentarily. He had to get to his telephone. Um Different phone than the one that he was at. David Katz, in case you don't know, is a former assistant district attorney. He actually worked with Adam Schiff at the at the D. A s office in UM, Southern California in Los Angeles. So he was an assistant, D A. For a period of time. It was a prosecutor, successful prosecutor, And then he decided that he was going to switch hats, any switched hats to do the exactly the exact opposite of what he had been doing and he became a criminal defense attorney. He's been Involved in some fairly high profile cases, and he has been very good about doing some punditry here for us here on KGO. I actually first heard of David Katz when he was on with Chip Franklin. And so one day I gave him a call, and it went very, very well. And so he's become a pretty regular on the program. There are a number of issues that have come up recently that are legally you know, related to legalities, and I really wanted him to comment on it like for Example. I mentioned earlier. There was a Saturday night live and there's a story about Donald Trump wanting to try to do something to stop Saturday night live from being able to make fun of him, and he was particularly upset about out Baldwin. He said that Alec Baldwin had no talent. He thought that he was terrible. He also wanted to take it was true ball. Oh, he also want to take on Jimmy Kimmel because Jimmy Kimmel was making fun of him so that they all were all bear. Everybody was There's a lot to make fun of their facts. Stephen Colbert's upset because he wasn't being targeted in this. Oh, David's here with us right now, let's bring him on David Cat. Hey, David. Thanks so much for joining us this afternoon. Sorry for the weird thing with Jackie Speier coming on and bumping you for a few minutes, But, uh, I'm sorry about that. I just wanted to take the opportunity to get her on. It was the only chance I could get her. So how you doing? Good to talk with you. I'm doing great. And if you're going to be bumped, Come on Jackie Spear. Terrific. Yeah, She's pretty terrific. Well, look, we've got just a few minutes before we have to take that one break, and then we'll have a longer period to talk because I've got a few issues that I wanted to talk with you about. And the first one is Donald Trump wanting his Justice Department to stop Saturday night live from teasing him. And also Jimmy Kimmel. He didn't like that Jimmy Kimmel was making fun of him. Either He talked about that, and apparently, he said that it should be tested in the court that it can't be legal, he said, is nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. David It's beyond belief. I I like to cope. There's joke. Colbert's joke was that when they picked him up in the dead of night and taken to Guantanamo for exercising his first Amendment rights, he wants top buildings. Everyone him over half Billy. He wants his Davit light. Colbert got several itself absurd. You know, we used to have a fairness doctor, and it was the Republicans who are clamoring to get rid of the fairness doctrine decades ago. That's when you had to present balanced views. If you gave one side time you were supposed to give the opposing political or philosophical Sonny time, But we're done with that. So the FCC really has no role to play. I mean, can you imagine if they went after Fox quote, fair and balanced spots? It would not be nice forever baby on Fox forever if they wanted a true affair to Stockton. So I think that what it just makes no sense. Of course. What's scarier, and I think we have to try to find this out. If you could do it in a discreet wait. Did they go after the taxes of any of those people remember that? Oh, had an enemies list and he went after taxes. Did they suddenly get on it? By a politically motivated I ours or by somebody that he put in the Department of Justice or in the Treasury Department. Um, you could say that that shouldn't happen. I do criminal tax defense of cases that go criminal, and I don't see that in my cases. Um, that's not how they get there, but they could get there that way and remember the tea party. They were all screaming that they've been selected out by supposedly some. I arrest dollars, So we have to see if Trump did any of that. Beyond that, you know, he said at the time. This is under another crime and other outbreaks. Trump committed in plain sight. He sent tweets at the time. It said the FCC and the DOJ ought to go after those late night hoped that he didn't like. Yeah, well, you you brought up the fairness doctrine in the case of comedy shows in the case of what both well Colbert Kimmel In the case of SNL, This is satire that we're talking about. That's not the same as a news entity that presenting issues for discussion that voters are going to be voting on. This is supposed to be funny, and it's satire and satire Simple. Protected speech, according to the Supreme Court, isn't it? You're absolutely right. But the irony is that SNL allowed Trump while he was running against Hillary Clinton in 2016 to host Saturday night Live, and when they allowed Trump NBC did to host Saturday Night Live. Other competitors for the Republican nomination screamed and they were actually given forms on NBC to make up for the fact that while it was parody and satire, it obviously gave Trump a starring role and commit advantage over his opponents over his competitors in the Republican primary. Uh, I don't think I realized that that's pretty funny. Yes. So Trump was referring to equal time, which is probably what NBC was responding to. But the equal time rule wouldn't apply to SNL means that if a radio TV station offers time.

Fresh update on "colbert" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"So I want to ask you a question that you might not have been asked before. A lot of people say, Charlie. I get sick to my stomach before I speak. I have to give a presentation. How did you overcome kind of just The, uh, the not just the nerves, but the anxiety like what was what was your day to get you actually physically in a place to be able to do that? Because that's not easy. I mean, I know when you speak and you have a lot of eyeballs on you. You gotta be gotta be right in that strike. Some walk us through kind of the crescendo of the day that got you To be where you were at two p.m. every day. So if we had a press briefing on a Monday, let's say I would read through. I get hundreds of news alerts that come to my phone in my email, and I would read, Read through every single news, alert every single headline and make a list of topics that my two closest aides were Chad Gil Martin and Julia Hahn. And they would do the same Julius Julius. Incredible. She's brilliant, used to work for Breitbart. I think she did She did. She's brilliant and we would sit down and come up with a list of topics and we would run through every single potential. Hardest question we could be asked Julia would send me a draft finder starting like seven a.m.. This were the day before we go, and I would look through the draft binder make notes. Google statistics facts. I wanted to overwhelm them with information. Um, and the next day we'd start up maybe seven or eight, and we'd start running through the questions reading through the binder preparing, preparing preparing And then I go to the bathroom, oftentimes get on my knees and say a prayer or if I didn't do that, my team, we would all my office. Last thing we would do, we would get in a circle, and there is a guy named Ben Williamson, New York for the chief of staff started calling him Reverend Bend and then pope ban as the briefings got harder. He would always pray with us now is the last thing we did as a team before we walked out, and I think it worked and gave us a lot of peace in the in the tough moments, and so I hope everyone understands that because there's this idea that There's like 600 people prepping these things. And there's these massive war rooms and there's like you research that and you do that. And you research that as if you know you have kind of like the 24 c two U thing. Remember, 24, Jack Power? Of course, the double decker with all the data analysts, where you just told me is that you have Get a core team at two and a pretty decent sized team to go brief 40 million people daily. Yes. So our press team exactly we had like, I think it was 10 to 12 and the pen to talk. There's more people writing the Colbert every night. That's true. Literally. There are little more producers for late night comedy than Producers to put on a press briefing. Yes, but these are these are high quality people. I would take Julia and Chad and Julius team of I think she had seven or I shouldn't shoot four people. I would take that team any day over. The Colbert know for sure. Alan staff all the staff's combined because she's She's such a high talent person as you know, you better. Yeah, and it's just an incredible juxtaposition. So Let's talk about where the country is right now. Kind of in closing, Um A lot of people are losing hope. A lot of people are wondering what's next. Do you have any insight into what President Trump might be thinking of doing? I've talked to him recently. He seems like he's in good spirits. Do you have any insight of what he might be doing it? I don't. I've talked to him recently, too, and he is in good spirits. We'll see. You know what he decides in 2024, but in the media term 2022. He's back out there. It was great to see him, I believe was in North Carolina. And I think more on the horizon for him. It sounds like in terms of rallies and getting our majorities back that that's the focus laser focus right now. Georgia and Arizona in particular, and so can you just speak to kind of what Some of the big issues are that you think we need to be focusing on To try to win back these majorities and also just try to win people over to the conservative message. Look, I think certainly the culture issues are very important. You know, people. I was just watching Fox and friends and they were talking about them getting rid of holidays and calling them days off in our school. You know, we're talking about not canceling people. They try to cancel anyone in Trump world. Now they want to cancel apple pie. I mean, these kinds of issues, people realize the insanity of it. Um, But in addition to that, I think really crime on the streets. The fact that crime is going up in all of these Democrat strongholds. The fact that you know, little boy, Aiden loses his life shot in his car seat, he says, Mommy, My tummy hurts and is a victim of murder there, And there's so many other examples. Um, you know, I think that that's really important that we put a focus on that law and order safety. New York City is Is literally crumbling. Right now I go there often and it is crumbling. So we got to focus on securing our streets and extend an inclusive economy message. You know, President Trump got more of the black vote more of the Hispanic vote than his predecessors did, And he did that by having an accessible economy and focusing on issues that American people care about crime and culture. I think those are the ones I mean, it was so sad about New York is that they actually did this themselves. It was a safe city. It was an enjoyable city, and they decided to be ideological, not pragmatic. They decided to go try to defend some ridiculous, esoteric idea instead of actually what works for their citizens, and now people are dying, and it's more dangerous than ever. The final thing for women out there that are listening on radio or podcasting. It's harder than ever to be a young, conservative woman out there You are the role model for that. And for good reason. Also a mother and a wife and a follower of God and Jesus. What? What advice? What are the big takeaways? Do you have for young conservative women in particular? Yes. Well, that's very kind. I mean, number one be bold when you speak even if others don't, you know, Stand up in applause in your classroom plot in your classroom. You were speaking for a lot more people than you know. You know, they're silent professions that I support you. I support you on Harvard Law campus when I was there, so if you were courageous enough to speak up And be bold. Others not only will follow you but will appreciate your voice, but number two don't if you want to be a mother and a wife, not every woman desires that, But if you have that on your heart, you don't have to sideline that for your career. You can do both. You can have it all. It's never a wrong time to have a baby to get married to do those things in life. I decided, you know, in the middle of a presidential campaign. What better time to have a baby But I did it. It was the best decision. I ever made. So just no, You can't have it all. You can have a high powered career. You can be a mother and a wife. If you so choose and desire. I love it. Well, for such a time as this is the book. We're going to have you back on the promoted throughout. Caylee. God bless you. Thanks so much for coming on. Thank you. An amazing job of turning point. It's such.

Okay? Got it. And I listened to it. It really was good. It was very good. Hey, last week. Did you hear what Bill Morris said? No. I didn't hear what Bill Maher said. Oh, yeah, It was really good. What he said about going to college. It was really and it was really good. Okay, Very good. Now what? What does it mean? You know, Russia used to say he was so right on. Why do we need the liberals or even leftist to validate our principles? Why do we get so excited? When one out of 101 kind of 1000 times.

"Name? The Maisie Williams. Yeah. Got had the sex scene and I was like, Oh, my God. She's so young, but she was actually like 20 or something. Yeah, I think you're right. From Roseanne. She plays Becky Conner, Alicia Goranson. She's 47 today. First, Becky not second. Becky from Scrubs, Donald Phase on 47 as well. Carson Daly from the voice and Today's show he is 48 today. This also still says last called Carson Daly. I'm not sure Is he still doing that Don't want show that comes on at like 23 again. Let something go. That means already the host of the voice you're on. You're on the today show, like Stop doing last call. Yeah, I gave up on NBC late night. Like, First of all, you got to get through Jimmy Fallon. And after that you got to get through Seth Meyers. I'm out. Sorry. Like Uh, every one of those guys or both of those guys just have these sort of I don't know. Mhm. Insincere personalities, and I can't stand that same thing that James Corden has like Stephen Colbert at least think that he's being sincere half the time. Everyone else, though. Half the time. Yeah, well, he's a goofball. So him and like Jimmy, um Yeah. Jimbo Kimball. Uh, Kimble Kimble is a storm show thing. Oh, I'm sorry. But the two of them they're goofballs. So, yeah, they're going to be insincere from time. Time for being stupid, But you at least get a sense that they're genuine people. Kimmel seems the one of most of the late night guy seems the most sincere. Fallon is the one that just thinks everyone's hysterical no matter what, and just has Just no spine. Yeah. Um, uh, What's his name? Colbert might kiss a little ass, but at the same time they all have to kiss a little. Yeah, he's not as just ridiculous about it. As cordon or, uh, Jimmy Fallon or even Seth Myers. Seth Meyers. I just I don't get I've never actually watched the show like I think I want to say I caught a few minutes of it a few years ago and It made sense that they instead of making him into a talk show host, which is what they tried to do In the beginning, They just said, You know what? Let's just go back to what he was good at, which was basically the weekend update on Saturday night Live and just make that his show. The entire show is weekend UPDATE, which makes For for what he did. It makes sense. Go with his talents. But maybe anyway, um Yes. Most of them just kind of But they don't take part with me. I think part of what we're missing is what we miss with, Uh It's like the balance between Leno and Letterman. Leno was the kiss asked everyone kind of liked Letterman was the one that wasn't afraid to be negative. He wasn't afraid to give his guests a hard time. Legitimately, Um Even coming out on things. He did that to Conan Conan was the mix between the two. I saw a clip from Conan Show and I haven't watched this show and forever like on TBS or whatever. I don't think I've ever really watched it at all since it was on there, but His show on TBS ending and they're doing like retrospectives and stuff like that. I shall I I saw a clip from the show this morning. It's still funny. He's still got it. But Don't know. Everyone on NBC is just No, thanks, I'll I'll watch reruns of something on Netflix. Carson. Yeah, Johnny, not daily. Other birthdays today. Kurt Warner retired quarterback NFL He is 50 Steven Page. Formerly of the bare naked ladies. He is 51 Michael Trucco. From Battlestar Galactica.

I didn't know there was a third book in that series. Honest to God, I didn't either. I thought it was DaVinci code, angels and demons. But apparently there's also the lost Inferno. And I'm sorry.

Fox's wife and also an actress Bruce Campbell. Friend of the show. He is 63 today. From Of course, the evil dead movies. Bubba Ho Tep, one of our show favorites, and at one time he wouldn't leave me alone at the radio station. There was that one time he would not leave Alfie alone at the radio station bugging me while I'm trying to do work. And there is that also the last time we had him on, we realized Yeah, He just kind of says the same thing every time. On the phone. In person. That was awesome. But if you get him to call in, he basically just does like the same stick that he does with every show. And you can't tell him. Hey, we had you on before he would be like, Oh, yeah, I totally remember that He will remember that. Not that I blame him. Cyndi Lauper had her on the show before she's 68 Today.

But Sunday morning coming down one of those one of those songs where you're just like feeling like ass hungover and and and you hear somebody relate to exactly how you feel. I don't think I've ever heard that song. Oh, dude, it's such it's such a It's Johnny Cash is the one who's best known for singing it. But, uh It's about him being hung over his F walking home from a from a like a late night or from walking home the next morning after being drunk and high. It's kind of depressing. It's extremely depressing, but when you are depressed And you hear Johnny Cash singing about how exactly you feel it slaps. It really does like, Yeah. You know what, Johnny?

"Weird. We're not calling it the Panamanian Canal Zone virus. We're not calling it the Austin, Texas virus. There are bats all over Australia. They're not calling it the Sydney or sure they're not calling it the Bondi Beach virus. They're calling it to Wuhan virus from China. And yet, Colbert. Colbert can't stand that. And he acknowledges openly on his show laughs about it. Yeah, we're probably going to edit this out. I don't know when they stopped taping, but I wish they would have stopped taping a minute ago because I'm a leftist, then left this thing conservatives are people really bad people with ideas. And we even though you're not a conservative, you're saying things conservatives say when you say things conservatives say that has to be crushed immediately. Folks. Political war is downstream from the culture war. Again. Jon Stewart's done some great things for cops and firemen. Sure his heart's in the right place there, but he's no friend to the conservative movement. He hasn't been for a long time. Done a lot of damage to strong conservative ideas. When these incidents happen, we need to highlight them. Because he has credibility on the other side. It pains me to tell you this that we simply don't have We are never going to break through unless ambassadors like this, whether they're taking up the mantle or not do the job some of the job for us

It's called queen went to the shop. We just got a slice of pizza. Slice would be the word ends. Yeah i took a by. We're on the street. And i took up by an i was like. Why is everyone not eating one of three. Now i see i see the clouds opening up rainbow. Beam coming down on you is that it was a rainy weekend. We didn't quite think it was going to be that rainy. We left the hotel in the morning hotter. Rain jacket pouring cats dogs. But i was intent on going to clean all and buying an entire full round size of the pastry get there. It's all to see inside. I get a whole one. Which by the way is not even that expensive and the whole thing. I swear it weighs like went ten pounds. I mean it's like it is heavy and they put it in like in like a pizza box pizza sheet box. The thin kind of cardboard ahead a little reusable shopping down with a nylon one. I put it in there and like the skies opened up. I mean it was pouring. All i can do is think of my pork when i'm on that i intended to like bring back home and then freeze half of it. They have reasoning And then course. I stop so we spent the whole wrecks the day walking around. Well it turns out. We were in like the furthest place from any kind of public transportation in a us man. Rain jacket like cover up the bags. When i i mean it was like i would have done anything for this clean among anyway. The moral of the story is it did make it home and we did freeze half of it and we did eventually all of it and it was amazing and worth. I love the fact that you took your jacket off and put it around the queen as as save. You're your little prize that you had that you weren't going to give up. I was not going to give up. It was not going to be sigy no matter what so. That's a good plot for a book which transitions to our next segment books. We have the segment called literary lottie in. It's my own guilty pleasure and we ask each of our guests but their favorite book is. And why. And i can that to my repertoire. While you've probably read my already the hobbit and lord of the rings and the reason for that is i was i think actually johnny introduced it to me Maybe five or so years ago. And i had never read it. I had seen some of the movies but didn't really get any know why it was such a big deal and then i read the hobbit and i was like wow. This is amazing. And they're also it's so many mentions of food and the importance of breakfast and second breakfast in fact our decaf land is called elevensies and that is after elevensies and i just totally fell in love with the world and the stories and such a rich incredible world. And it's just a great story and we can talk anymore because you lump them together so you you've got a person who's going to critique that sounds like the stephen colbert Kind of level of intensity related to that. Because i'm in. I'm in your camp actually charlotte because i love the hobbit and started the lord of the rings trilogy and i ended up skipping around.

This is worth the burning. A couple of hours on a saturday and i hope so. We appreciate it very much for being such a nice guys in the wrestling. Alright even thank you. Thank you bye buddy so really leaving or light you. You broke me with the conan story. You fucking broke me in half never recovered never. I'm never so we cannot use. That is what you're saying about this. If he ever talks about it if he ever if he ever said anything about me. Drop a deuce when risky if he ever says anything like that then. All bets are off. Obviously but i don't know anything about that ever happened. According to you the other one never happened either. What what did he say anything about me. Because i don't listen i can't. We're not allowed to say anything about anything we're we're with you we're gonna. Nda with him. Yeah okay. so you're saying he said something. I said anything. I don't even know i'm not even allowed to acknowledge the fact that he can talk. Whatever you do whatever you do do not broadcast the fact that up close conan looks like one of those guys fish out of a bog. An ireland was sacrifices. Some celtics ceremony and thousand years ago. And like you see him in a museum in dublin and they look like a catcher's mitt up in cooperstown that was used by shoeless. Joe chats they forgot to oil one hundred year.

He knows how to get a conversation. Going knows how to get it going going okay. So that was crazy to hear. Colbert tell a story. That feels like we heard a different side of yeah. Conan has a completely different and the question is now. Who's who's the liar. And this is where it comes into what camper you in. Are you in bears camp. now conan's camp. I say at first. I i believe conan but but you know now that stephen was just maybe because it was just on and he was extremely persuasive in his civic and very specific on this story more specific than conan the actually say implied or even said that the excrement was safety cone. Orange right obviously again. Gobert pointed out in show business. You have to pick a side. You can never deviate from it. But i would say that knowing conan historically i've known her for whatever twenty years he's such a fucking liar so hard not to just immediately assume that he because he is such a such a untruthful fucking person through and through. I mean when you run into him. He opens with a lie. I don't know do you trust the fucking liar or do you trust the guy with the I guess i'm gonna go colbert. Let's this land there for now. Yeah yeah great. Guest he is. I mean to be able to sustain the energy to do a daily talk show where you have to be interested every single day and right all of that stuff and it's just.

Houston bar struggles with how to enforce mask wearing after state mandate was lifted

"Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus restrictions. He made the announcement in a restaurant. The governor is ending a mask mandate and encouraging businesses to return to 100% capacity. How does that plan look to the staff at a restaurant? The governor did not visit. That's where Houston public Media's Katie Watkins begins her report. They're going around at Neil's Bar in Houston's East downtown neighborhood. A sign on the door reads. No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. But bartender Kristin Farmer worries the end of the statewide mask mandate may make that harder to enforce. Even prior to this, it was difficult sometimes to get customers to wear masks. So Going forward. I feel like it's gonna be More so under Governor Greg Abbott's new order businesses, Concil enact their own mask requirements and safety protocols, the bar farmer works that will still require masks and social distancing. But she fears the governor's message may further embolden anti masters and put people like herself who haven't been vaccinated at risk. We're obviously in a position where the vaccine isn't available Death but are trying to still work, so it would be cool if More people were vaccinated before we started opening up everything and Not taking just the basic steps. Currently, just 7% of people living in Texas are fully vaccinated. Still, some praise the governor's decision to allow businesses to operate at full capacity that is going to be tremendous and very, very necessary for our industry. That's Melissa Stewart with a Greater Houston restaurant association. She says. The statewide mask mandate was helpful when it was stay wide, and everybody had to do it. Was easier for staff members, frankly, to enforce it says it wasn't a question. That's why restaurant owner Alex Brennan Martin says he's making mass mandatory for employees but not for customers. Those strongly encouraged. It's become contentious and putting our employees are managers myself. In the position of enforcing those regulations, especially on an issue that seems to be just about 50 50 when you talk to folks and is highly emotionally charged It's a difficult thing to ask your employees and management to do. Houston has recorded all four Major Cove in 19 variants and medical professionals warn that loosening restrictions now will set back recovery efforts. Dr Joseph our own is the chief medical officer at United Memorial Medical Center. His main concern is another spike in hospitalizations. The moment I heard about these information of the governor was saying, I immediately called for a meeting here in the hospital on talking to the rest of the leaders of the hospital. We leave. From initial plans. So what we're going to do because we think we're going to have a large number of patients coming because of this, don't not wear a mask request by the governor, he says. These plans include stocking up on more PPE having more nursing personnel and even getting additional ventilators. Other frontline health care workers like ICU nurse Yvette Polo, Mackey share his concern. Colbert is nowhere near over. There's still people know ICUs like today that are dying that will die tomorrow that will die the next day. The next day, weeks and weeks to come still because of covert. She's worried about the extra physical and mental toll. This decision will take on her colleagues. Who have already been caring for a never ending stream of covert patients for nearly a year for NPR news. I'm Katie Watkins in Houston. The

Can Stop matter of fact every time I've gone too far and stopped myself. Yes, is because within ten minutes of each other. My wife and John Stewart said those are the two voices don't do that. Don't do don't do that, but isn't it interesting though in the beginning I think now people are getting you, but in the beginning in the early days. Yes, early days people would come on the show and be freaked out because it would really. was they would think that you. were. Exactly but I always. Play a character on the show, but I don't want my guests to be caught off guard. They're my guests. Yes, I say to every single person I do the show and character He's an idiot. He's willfully ignorant of what you know or care about. Please honestly disabuse ignorance. Don't let me put words in your mouth and we'll have to just say. The word for word I want everybody to start from the same SPA. Okay one of the criticisms that your show receives is that it can appear cynical sometimes at your audience is I wouldn't want young impressionable people. Do you worry that you're creating a generation of cynics? I don't worry that I. Am I I would hope that I'm not, but I don't. I don't on workers I'm meet the people. And they don't seem synagogue. Show that they get that. A Game I do not believe that people are that I don't believe that people are only interested in themselves and I wouldn't want to encourage that I would want to encourage. No political engagement, because young people who purport to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynical, but cynicism is not wisdom, cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but cynicism is a self-imposed blindness. You put the blinders on yourself to protect yourself from a world that you think might hurt. You were disappoint you. BE A FOOL Believe things will be good better to be hurt and so. I would hate to think that people got cynical. was really good. Choosing this is about what you feel and not what is really the fat? Not What is real truth is truth is. What you wish to be true. As opposed to what is factually accurate, and then it becomes the word of the year where the year it's. The dictionary people, Webster. It's in the American Oxford Dictionary now. I'm very very excited about it and I married an English major so I think that actually is probably sexier to her. Had six pack. ABS is that I made up a word that went in the dictionary you do. Are You surprised at? The genius behind the the idea that you play a fictional character on TV. Who has now real influence I mean like Time magazine, most influential kind of influence. Are You surprised by that? Could, you say the word genius again. Right. That's the genius of that well I. Don't know if I have influence, but you do. People say that I influence them. And if they say that then that's a legitimate thing for them to feel and that's true, but that's not my intention, and I'm completely surprised by. What is your intention I might? Intention is to make jokes that are about things that I'm interested in you. Know I, do satire I sometimes I just do silly jokes, but mostly we try to do jokes that that mean something right? That's all satire satire parody with point my point. Often is. I should not be telling you what to think. But that's what a lot of nighttime punditry is. I'm going to tell you how to think and how to feel, but in a more importantly, I'm gonNA. Tell you how to feel regardless of what you think, but in your satire satirical. Take on not telling US what the thing! You get us to think. Well, that's a that's a double gainer. But I. You get us to think while want you to I. Want you to think about what I'm talking about. Yes, but I don't don't always want you to know what I think about it. because sometimes I agree with character. And it's important to me that the audience, not no. Okay so let me get this straight. The fictional character yes colbert. Raised over a million dollars. Point four, one four real dollar. Greenbacks Baby Kate with a real SUPERPAC. Yes, I formed an actual SUPERPAC this past year. The great thing about it was that I have no plan. I just wanted to find out what was legal to do with money and politics, and it turns out almost anything legal really and every time I would be told what I was about to do is illegal. I would talk to my lawyer and he would say actually. All you have to do is file this piece of paper and you're fine. Then the network called and said, are you really forming a political action committee and I said I don't know why. Why do you need to know? And they said because if you are, that could be trouble. And I said well, then we're. Doing it! Because I love trouble. I love trouble. Especially being told that I shouldn't do by then you. Don't do it, so I found out that I could raise money and never tell anybody who where it came from. And that's what's happening right now and I would not have known that if I didn't actually try to do it, but now you've got the money I've got the money honey what you doing about half a million dollars already? Okay, because when I. Sort of ran for president in South Carolina. We ran ads in South Carolina Island Texas Yep. So. You're also bestselling author. I am again again. Your third book yes. Yes, Ma'am do these come easy for you? Oh just. Off The back of our hands, hundred sixty one shows a year two hundred and fifty pages of jokes. Let's do another. How does this come about? Though that came about because, there is a sense. Of course that America is the greatest country, and it is perfect, and you must never not be proud of it in its exceptional in its etc American exceptional nece. Time that sort of the the the right wing pundits that I that I am a shadow of the same. They say that they also say America is broken. It's going on the toilet and we have to fix it, so I thought. How can those two things exist at the same time? How can could be perfect and we must get it back on track well, it can be because America again re becoming the greatness. We never weren't exactly. Yeah. Yes, that's why it can to seems that. That's the hallmark of of the criticism of the Obama Presidency America's perfect. How how dare you ruin it the way you have? And so so the book is all about how everything in America's the greatest whether it's our jobs. Our health healthcare system. Would you not need a socialist healthcare system?

"And just plain hilarious. Six million people tune in each week to the Colbert report, Stephen Colbert is an actor playing a character who's also named Stephen Colbert. He's a parody of a loud mouth political pundit. Tonight on next chapter visit the real Stephen Colbert in his hometown of Charleston South Carolina Stephen Almost never does interviews as himself. I found out. He is whip smart, delightful and a loving family man. We met in the charming one hundred fifty year, old home of Steven's mother and father in law. Stevens wife of nineteen years. evy tells me what it's like to be married to one of the most razor sharp comedic minds on television today a hello. Nice to meet you. Stephen Colbert my. Avocados from. Actually grew these. Two. Come in. It's cool. It's cool. So cool. It's better. It's better. You're welcome concert. Come come on and thank you. They're wiping up. Put them in a brown bag wrapping up and they'll be great. He's in my parents hello. Chose well, thank you. Thank you. This is your house. I hear I think it is like out of a magazine. Stephen Heavy celebrated their wedding in this House. It's also where the family gathers every year for Christmas. How much time do you get to spend here? Oh, no! Matter enough. My stupid show keeps me in New York City. My wife keeps on I. I was smart enough to marry a girl from my hometown, so we don't have any debates about where we go. When we have any free time. Christmas vacations just like. Why can't you do that? Show in Charleston South Carolina? Interview the people we grew up with. Them. That would be about it. But this is I grew up in house like this in Charleston, and down the street here about a quarter of a mile, and this is very much like the atmosphere grew up feels charming is Charleston's got charming by the crate load baby. Yeah, you want charm. We'd do it. The world seems confused by you. Won, The world seems confused, not sure where the TV cold bear. Yes, yes. And the real one begins, and now recently I love this quote about you. In The New York Times magazine I think it was in January. They say late late though there has emerged a third Kobe. This one is a version of the TV show. Colbert except he doesn't exist on screen anymore. He exists in the real world and has begun to meddle in it. WHO WILL I be doesn't sound. Dangerous. WHO WILL I be talking to today? I know well. That's an excellent question. I don't I often don't know who people invite to come. You know talk to them because I'm called Stephen Colbert I have a character named Stephen Colbert we both the same social security number of the whole deal. And I don't mind. The audience can't tell who's who at times at time at times on the show in my real life. This is just me right now. This is Stephen Colbert. Not Stephen. Colbert okay, okay, as are we all clear now? I'm clear I. Hope I've made myself for money, yes! So where did the Stephen Colbert of the Colbert report? Where did he come from well? I used to work for this guy named John Stewart Stephen got his start fifteen years ago, working as a correspondent on the late night hit the daily show, it was on that fake news show where he created his alter ego. Stephen, Colbert, coolest news reporter. The character became an instant fan favourite. And love working for and with John, but we used to say what shame that we we're not doing that other form of show, because certainly in Cable News, the king shows are pundit personality shows is so. We started started pretending that we had one. Yes, called the Cobra Poor, but we just ran commercials for it on the show. We did fake promos for the show that didn't exist and people kept calling up and saying. That show going to start I. WanNa. Watch that show so eventually we said. Why don't you just do that show? We've been advertising for two years and and that's how it came about as as an attempt to do a pundit show like Bill O'Reilly. Sean Hannity So, is Stephen Colbert from the Colbert report. Is it just it's O'reilly and other people. It's a combination of O'Reilly would be the biggest example because at least the king.

He does is changing the direction of this great ship. We call America just. Inch by inch with his will. The level of importance exactly so I want to have that. So that's what the show the show we want to do. Something that was a pundit show were the character was. Well intentioned I'd like to say that he's well intentioned. Poorly informed high status idiot. IDIOT IDIOT! has there been a time when you thought? He crossed the line for instance. Go back to the correspondents' dinner, two thousand six. No, no cross, the line. That's just cut some joke. He cut some jokes I was. Not, a household name then I think you're. Invited if I'd been a household name, I. Think we hadn't even fifty shows. And so I called John, Stewart and I said John I. Just got invited. You know. For the correspondents' dinner. Do you think I should do it? And he said what light to attend and I said No. They want me because they want. Be The guy Next to the president. Do they know what you do and I said I don't know. And I said I think have to do because you have to do it. Right now you have to do it Oh my God! Have you seen the faces of the people? Ever watched only because. I I. watched. I couldn't bring myself to. what you don't understand. People should at home is that there's no Mike on the audience. And that. Unless the people on the dais were laughing or the front row. You couldn't hear any laughter. Three thousand people in the room and it went pretty well. Except the front row, and and the day and the day, s and so it really looked like it was uncomfortable, but it was really enjoyable I really. Had Fun, I had a great time and it wasn't until it was over and I went back to. Actually there was one moment when I looked over at the president, and he didn't seem to be having a good time which upset me. A little bit of wrote him a letter afterwards, saying thank you was an honor. I I hope you enjoyed some level. It was really an eye I will, I will always. I think he couldn't tell.

We went away from it. We're like this is too much like the old GIG. Let's go away from it and then that did not feel right either and then we were just kind of like swimming around going.

Hi, my name is Stephen Colbert. And. I feel cool about being Conan O'Brien's friend. Back to school walking. Hey, you're listening to Conan O'Brien needs a friend. And this is a special episode. I've been very fortunate so far in this podcast. I've had the opportunity to speak to a lot of amazing people. And of course, there's some people I hardly ever get to talk to people I admire, but they live on the other side of the country and they're busy. And so what I've done is. I jumped on Red Eye, and I have flown to New York City because I really want to sit down and talk to Stephen Colbert. He's really busy. He's got a show to do today. But for some reason, he agreed. I think it was as someone who has to do a show every day. I would never do this. I don't know. Why he agreed? But he agreed to sit with me and have a conversation. I am sitting in the basement of his offices and studio at the Ed Sullivan theater. I am really excited to open up his head and look at this brain that fascinates me. And as always I am aided by the trustee mad girly. Hello girly high and Sonal obsession now Sona just quickly. We're about to talk to Steven. But I'm still your favorite late night house, right? Yes. Okay. Let's let's just you're the one that pays me. So yes, sir. You are my favorite. I feel so hollow. Now. Let's get into this. Mr. Stephen Colbert. We don't really know each other that well, but when we are a little bit. Yeah. I kinda got to know you without ever meeting you through Allison Silverman. Who was my executive producer? Yes. Who was one of your right or one of my writers late with the late night days back at Rockville centre. Exactly, exactly. And she felt worldview and told all these stories about you. So I got curious about what you were like as a person and Robert smuggle used to talk about you all the time. Yeah. And and so I so before I ever met you. I was like I wonder what would be like to know Conan. And then we didn't really know until the writers strike of two thousand and seven and we started playing back and forth from your show my show and the daily show about who made Huckabee. Yes, you claim that you had made Huckabee giving him the Huckabee bump, the Kobe bomb, the Kobe bump. Yes. And I forget what happened, but we made up a fake feud because we were all making up our shows and the writers strike put right anything. He still had to fill fill time. And I remember very clearly working with you and feeling an immediate kinship as if you were my long lost brother because we taped a bit. We were it was John myself, and you were supposed to be having a long fight fistfight yell long prolonged multi room weapon fight. Yeah. And obviously there was something where you, and I clicked the way brothers separated at birth would click because we had to start fighting you immediately went into the old style.

I wanted to write something that captured a theme like quality, which means you on a helmet that it that. Did it? Something that captured that humble singable quality.

"It's a, it's a part of it, but it's not the only part. I mean the the final part of the the Christian stories, the resurrection, which is joyful. And you know, ADEMA saw how we remember. That's pretty bloody up until that point. Right for for a few days, right. All right. But you know, ADEMA saying that Huma helps us remember things and New Testament scholar said, Jesus used humor and his parables. We don't understand it because we're not in a first century Judea, Galilea NHS, but there are sort of examples. For example, he's he cracks jokes. He does. There's there's an example you're talking about how to remember things at one point with the scribes and the Pharisees says, you strain out a net and you swallow a camel, and we say, well, it's interesting, but in Aramaic, the words, right for camel and net are gum, LA and Gama. So what he's doing, he's he's doing a little pond. He's been a little word play, which would have helped people remember things in his day. So we don't understand joke. Yes. Yes. There's another time little time. We're one of the disciples, here's it's the messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, and he says, can anything good come from Nazareth? Which is a little bit of a dig basically. So there we, we don't. We don't get it because it's, you know, first college. Yeah. And so part of it is is recognizing that in these stories that we know so well is some humor and the people at in those times would have understood these things as funny and as ADEMA saying, memorable to some of the best satires when you make fun of yourself or your own your own tribe, I guess. So father, how would a Catholic gore about satirizing the Catholic church very easily. There's a lot to there's lots of laugh at and I, I mean, I think that's perfectly legitimate target. I mean, they're human organizations. We have to keep humble. And so why wouldn't you make fun of, you know, people were pump as or or stuffy, or things that we do that are crazy. So why not? Father, thank you once again for being on. Coming up. Stephen Colbert shares a hopeful reminder that knowledge is power when star talk retirees. This is star talk. Star talk from the American Museum of natural history right here in New York City. We've been discussing the intersection of science and satire with comedian, talk show, host, Stephen Colbert, check it out. So Stephen. Yeah, I'm Neil. Whatever are the challenges of politics between knowing what is true and what isn't. I think we feel that even more deeply in the sciences when you have people rising up with platform speaking objectively false things about the natural world, it's frustrating and we don't even know what to do. And I have to say, let's just fall to the bottom and then everyone figures out. How they should pay attention to knowledge. I, I don't know late in the in the process of that fall, things are broken and things are neglected. When instead things could be built, an action can be taken to prevent further damage. A report was recently published leaked actually from fifteen different federal agencies. I believe who all agree the climate change is happening faster. The effects are more profound, more media more palpable knowable. By individuals you can see it happening in your lives. It was leaked because the fear was that the president ministration would. Suppress this report. So this is the world we live in now that science has to be leaked, or we're gonna get our weather forecasts from guy wearing a trenchcoat and a shadowy. Deep throat is giving us our weather forecasts in a in a parking lot somewhere in Washington DC. You know, you know, leaking the information that is partly cloudy tomorrow, just fear of knowledge, like fear of knowing things about the world is so weak..

"As guests, like Neil DGT even being g once in a while. Now, one thing the United States does export for better or for worse is our popular culture are pop culture and a lot of produce right here in Hollywood USA. Now, here's hoping that Stephen Colbert passion and good humor get exported right along with the memory of all these storms. Back to you nail. Sofia. I've known this for a while that one of our biggest exports is entertainment. You kind of stumble on it when you travel and you put on the TV and all the shows are like, shows you back on, but dubbed in the local language, but we don't have any of their shows dubbed in our language back here. So so there's a great a symmetry there. And so I'm just curious, how long do you think American entertainment will continue to influence the world? Well, I mean, what we see is especially with things like what we saw on the Colbert report. Right? And the daily show there are sort of versions of this everywhere. In fact, there was a total Kobe report rip off in China. It was really funny. It was almost identical. And in fact, we have these examples of satire news show similar to what we had and part of it is it's not a very expensive format and people enjoy it. But the other piece of it that we want to remember is that. Across cultures and across time. Human beings have always produced tire. 'cause it's what you do when you need to mock systems of power that are abusing their status. Right? So there's always been a need for it's always been. So for instance, Colbert reference Jonathan swift on his show, right? So they Jonathan swift. Goes to unease are. Even all and all that stuff. So, yeah, wrote over travels. Yeah. Just showing off that I, I'm later. We all knew. Okay. Thank you. So Stephen Colbert Colbert report had such a pop culture following that it reached all the way to face. Let's check it out. Dude. You got a treadmill in space. The combined operational load bearing load-bearing external resistance. Treadmill call bear the greatest. That's. I mean, that's crazy. Man. I mean, Newton take me now. I don't. I got a bust of is over. He's looking at you smiling and credible. Here's here's how it happened. Do one is that so the old show I love having things named after me because the whole show is expression of the ego of my character. Not of me. I have no ego, a humble servant. What are the great things that I could piggy Bank, my ego on his ego and I, we were on break or something like that is about to go back to work the next day. And I noticed online that NASA was having a naming contest for one of the new modules that would attached to the space station, and and I went well, surely they're not letting people just submit names. They have to be like a list of four and it's going to be like tranquility, or, you know, serenity or some nonsense like that and that, Nope, you can submit your own. So I myself the next day, I said, go vote and we beat everybody. And then as before they announced you wanna said, okay, we need to because we're not going to name the module after you. Sorry. So this is what they, I offered me. They was through an intermediary or else I would have jumped on it right away. They said, we have a water reclamation system where it reclaims the astronauts, urine, please. Urine, this is a family show urine, and then it's filtered. So it's drinkable again, and I was like, I'm in, you mean you could name the astronaut urine filtration system after me, and and then you could bring some that watered down. I can have a bourbon and astronaut p. you know, I wanna have. That's a perfect cocktail. That's the most American cocktail Kentucky bourbon astronaut pee on carve my face on mount Rushmore. And before I could say yes, they said, okay, we've run it through the higher channels and they're not gonna let you name because this is exactly why. And they said, what about a treadmill? And I said, that sounds fantastic. Of course, not the only thing the man has named after him. He's got a flavor of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. There's a bald eagle in zoo, which is, of course the symbol of show named after him, and he has a species of spider named after him..

"MSNBC. And so what they found was that. And what is curious about this this you think, well, how could you know that? That's the only source of the news, but they correct for that, right. So one watch join Stewart in the daily show, but still consumed ten other newspapers and things and therefore Dan would give a skewed result. Yeah, you can't. That won't work for. Data. Right? So the data there was a study, for instance, in two thousand seven Pew Research study? Yes. And they put Stewart and Colbert at the top now up with like NPR. Right. So so just think about this for a minute, both Stewart and Colbert were a little freaked out. Find out that was true because it turns out they wanted to do comedy. He did not want to be the source of everyone's news. They wanted to make fun of the news and make fun of pundits and politicians. They didn't want all that pressure that wasn't what they were looking for. It was just a sign of the times I'm in that statistic because my primary source of news is through them. And if there's it's new story, that's kind of interesting then I go and dig up other sources. Well, you are exactly the story, right? Which is that people would get the hook from those shows, then they would go and start looking into it more. And that was from a satire Sam. Point of first of its kind. This is the perimeter of the comedic circle growing even further. That's why those that's really the top of the mountain top for a lot of comedians. Like for what you can do. 'cause nobody went to Rodney Dangerfield for current events. Right. Was that the news it self had gotten so ridiculous. Right? And so Cobra would make fun of the fact is specially morning news, right? They're covering, say an alligator walking down the street. No wonder people are not really learning anything. And so it turned out that the satire news was informing the public at a much higher rate and that still true, right? They really control it at some level, some of the conversation, what we try to do on our show is we're look. I'm just a comedian, right? I'm not a scientist or researcher of any kind. But what we try to do is bring and following in that mold, bring information to the audience through comedy. So we mostly go to journalists scientists and we bring them on the show, it's mixer better bid if the information you bring in current events, yes. Then people bring an awareness of it too. Yeah, you're bit. Well, the thing is people also people love to laugh and they love to learn, and they love to be informed. And so that. Temple of doing both of those things at once while you're making fun of the information answer giving it turns out to be really effective. Next in my interview with Stephen Colbert, we discover the roots of his passion for science and comedy. When star talk returns..

"Dot org. It was then viewed hundreds of thousands of times and the media had to start to cover it, react to what people reacting to. Right, right. So that was also part it wasn't just that Colbert would do. He would impersonate pundit and get away with saying stuff that other. He did it in care. It was also that it was the beginning of this amazing relationship bears had with social media and with like fan based sort of that ongoing relationship he has with this fan, what I found so fast. Fascinating that moment as a comedian as a young comedian, I was just, you know, I was an amateur comedian at that point. I was just doing open mic and stuff, but every comedian noticed that moment open mic is walks up. Anybody walks your name is not on the marquee outside. Yeah, right. You ever have this business, you have to go up and just start reading your paper out loud. Doing that. Your name was in a schedule. So so. Everybody watch that. It was such a huge moment for comedians. Like we all noticed, holy crap. This guys doing something really different. The other shocking thing about it is that they would never book him now if they were going to if they were booking White House correspondent mean, you know if they were booking today, they would never book Stephen Colbert because they didn't the political class. And the media didn't realize the power that comedy had at that moment. It always jokes. And there is actually some debate over whether they really knew what he, you know, who is character was in, can't be clear on it. Maybe they set shop or maybe they didn't, right. But no one's admitting it since then it has thirty one EMMY nominations and nine wins, and he's got a Grammy award for Christmas comedy, album winner, Grammy for for comedy. And of course the for me, the most coveted of these awards is to body. That's the one where they. You know, didn't watching not just how popular you are kind of messaging change maker change change maker. Exactly. So so I can see why he might be influential given that exposure, but why would he be so important a comedian in your circles? I mean, he he and John Stewart, both. You know, I think as a unit that that classic our back to back, you know, really showed me as a comedian, what comedy was capable of doing comedy? Could you know 'cause there? Oh, yeah. People used to make fun of the president, you know, but it was that comedy could really speak to people intelligently with intelligence and talk about actual issues that were happening today, and I never thought about that. What you're saying is that the the, the the perimeter of what counted as important and good comedy? Yes, grew, yes. So for me, I picked up different things about it, so so there was all that what you described, but I was guest on his show multiple times and that was not unusual. I. Tists get that scientists all the both of them just do it and Stephen Colbert. And so I just thought, wow, scientists now have a voice, get an important outlet that wasn't previously accessible to them. So I asked him about this heavy presence of science on his show, shake it out. There was kind of like a scientist every week or an academic who had expertise by that had to mean unlike most talk show hosts, yes, that you valued science. I love it in the conversation. I love. I love learning come from with, where's the science come from? Was a science come from? Because you're, you're comedian, your talk show host at is not anybody's. I thought, well, listen, comedians are great deconstructionist's by nature. You take things apart this case..
