In light of the False Benghazi report on 60 minutes, Stephen Colbert had a little fun in his own special, quirky, way on the Colbert Report and created a parody of the unfortunate report from 60 Minutes.
“Folks, I’m not buying this. CBS is good at journalism. There’s only one logical explanation for what really happened here. Hillary Clinton got to them!!” Colbert continued “You see, as you well know but I will repeat as often as possible, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State during the Benghazi attacks. I mean, that’s her official photo. And now she’s so hungry for power in 2016, that she somehow convinced 60 Minutes to air this false Benghazi apology to discredit their investigation.”
Colbert then went on to interview the one man who could really shed some light on the 60 Minutes fiasco, Poncho Denews (played by Sam Waterston). Poncho told a tale of going to get tobacco for Leslie Stahl, when he heard explosions. He ran towards the explosions, scaling a 30-foot wall surrounding the newsroom. Once he landed, he knocked out a shadowy figure with a harpoon gun. He continues “Turns out it was Morley Safer. But, then I turned around, and I saw… I saw….It was Hillary Clinton and her band of thugs!”
