Conservatives can mock Stephen Colbert all they need, but it surely hardly issues to the progressive comedian.
Colbert has been late night time’s undisputed chief for the previous few years, and there’s been no severe try and dethrone him. He doesn’t want conservatives watching his present, apparently. Nor do the right-leaning slings and arrows pierce his rankings protect.
Plus, the media adores him, regurgitating his anti-Trump materials and ensuring by no means to truth examine his monologues. It’s good to be king … till this week.
The Fox Information program Gutfeld!, a cable present with zero A-list stars and a modest price range, simply beat Colbert’s “Late Show” in the ratings for the first time.

The truth that it occurred whereas Colbert ran protection for what could be the most important international coverage blunder of the fashionable age will not be coincidental. Likelihood is various viewers had been curious what a right-leaning comedian needed to say about President Joe Biden’s blunder versus Colbert’s typical fawning.
It’s additionally the primary of a number of physique blows in opposition to the far-left propagandist.
This week additionally noticed a damning report saying the Jan. 6 Capitol riots weren’t an insurrection, nor had been they egged on by President Donald Trump or another physique.
