As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following excerpts from an opinion piece by Becket Adams and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

CBS’ Stephen Colbert is sad that the current state of our national discourse has been brought so low that public figures talk constantly about President Trump’s rumored affairs with various adult performers and models.

He believes it’s so bad, in fact, that he debuted a new segment Thursday titled, “What Have We Become?”

“[I]f you had told me five years ago that we would be champing at the bit to get stories about Donald Trump’s naked, sweaty body wreaking havoc on a hotel duvet, you would have said, ‘No way! Now let’s watch ‘Sharknado.’ They’re only going to make one of these!’” Colbert said in a segment that was both joking and earnest.

The article goes on to state the following:

He added, “Yes, back then, it was a time of primal innocence and we took it for granted. Now all of America lives behind the beaded curtain at a video store. And it don’t smell so good. All that being said, give me them spanky, stanky anecdotes! I’m a super-freak … and it feels good to be bad.”

Colbert’s not quite there, but it sounds like he is on the cusp of becoming self-aware. A few more weeks of observing what a mess our politics and news media have become, and he may finally understand his place in all of this. Don’t pity him, though. He’s not Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, slowly understanding the world through observing the behavior and appearance of others. Colbert is Igor. He helped create this monster.
