Stephen Colbert at White House Correspondents Dinner

As Glenn Greenwald reminded me in his article on the NYT ‘Should We Tell The Truth’ Fiasco, Stephen Colbert has their number.  This is from 2006.  Stephen Colbert is not someone who is afraid to speak truth to power, which is what Journalists, not comedians, are supposed to do.  In this clip he confronts George W. Bush directly, who is sitting next to him, in front of the entire White House Press Corp.  He also addresses the White House Press Corp. who had invited him.
