Not everyone loves Stephen Colbert

As Stephen Colbert is announced as David Letterman's replacement, Michelle Fields and Keli Goff debate the reaction to the pick on the left and the right.

    Stephen Colbert will never get the ratings of Jimmy Fallon because Colbert is just plain nasty. Not funny. Nasty. And a complete narcissist, to boot. Letterman's "finest" hour was saying to Bill O'Reilly, "But, everything you say is a lie, isn't it?" To which Bill asked, "Have you ever watched the show?" And Letterman, honestly, while proving his stupidity, answered, "No." What an embarrassment. And Letterman didn't even have the brains to be embarrassed. And you think Letterman wasn't political? Duh! Did you ever even watch the show??

    I can't stand Colbert – his humour is hate-filled – yeah I know those who hate some "other side" like him he offends me.
    It's not the "sides" it's the political hate.


    Letterman was not political neither was Carson – this is disgusting.

    Yeah half of America will cheer him the other half will turn the channel.

      "Letterman was not political"

      Surely you don't remember his "Stooge of the Night" segments....

        Nope . So that makes .0000001 percent politics to Colbert's 100 percent.

    The best man got the job and all CNN can do is promote a hack left/right debate.

      CNN has nothing to do with it. Colbert is the most popular because most Americans have been converted to self-defeating leftism. Think of Colbert as Nero makes fun of fire while Rome is burning.
