Much like the related class of experts, Journalists come in two types: Real journalists, who concern themselves with the truth and speak from the gut, and So-called journalists, who want to talk about "facts" and think with their heads. The latter type are typically factonistas or Wordanistas, intent on manufacturing stories to fit the truth into 500 words or less.
Stephen Colbert embodies the qualities of a real journalist. In truth, he is the exact opposite of his counterparts in the liberal media establishment. Unlike so-called journalists, Stephen Colbert is always kempt, gruntled, plussed, ingenuous, and sightful. He is also Grippy, Megamerican, Lincolnish, Superstantial, and absolutely oozing with Gravitas. No one would say the same of Dan Rather.
