Colbert’s Gospel (Music) for Striking Writers

What will it take to end the bitter standoff between WGA screenwriters and studio big cheeses?  Stephen Colbert tries an innovative—and inspiring—approach by breaking into “Go Down Moses” with some help from the Harlem Gospel Choir and “Blink” author Malcolm Gladwell.

Bill Clinton

Clinton and Obama

Fireworks in South Carolina

Despite all the smiles, the Democratic campaign has been contentious for a while now. With the nomination on the line like never before, the candidates really let it fly in this, the most heated presidential debate yet.

Romney in SC

Romney, Reporter Spar in a Staples Store

Following presidential candidates from state to state as they shake hands, kiss babies (and backsides, some might say, in the figurative sense) and promise to be the Best Prez Ever! must get tiresome for reporters on the campaign trail. In this clip, it’s hard to say if the grind got to AP scribe Glen Johnson or whether Mitt Romney’s claims about eschewing lobbyists made him snap.

Bill Clinton Scolds Reporter
