Tired of Fox News? So is The Colbert Report, who is on campus right now filming students. We caught up with a CC senior who had just been interviewed for the segment to mock Fox News making Columbia students look stupid.
“So The Colbert Report is coming on with unreasonable demands—he holds up a picture of somebody and swooshes it by really fast and asks them to name which political official it was. The humor is that Columbia students are really smart and answer correctly, and he’s trying to make a funny shot and gets pissed off. So I was just interviewed to answer what are the three branches of government. I actually got 2 of them right the first time, and then they did the shot again where I got all three of them right—he said ‘Son of a bitch!’ and stormed off.”
How many takes would it take you?
