Stephen Colbert of the Comedy Channel’s Colbert Report is coming to Canada to check out the Vancouver Winter Olympics.
No reason that he can’t expose Canada’s biggest scandal ever, while he's here for a couple of days, given the intense unwillingness of those in the Canadian media to do their jobs properly.
You might know Stephen Colbert, as he is the one who coined the term “truthiness” which was named Word of the Year for 2005 by the American Dialect Society and for 2006 by Merriam-Webster
A perfect example of the concept known as “truthiness” is tax leakage. Truthiness is something that has the ring of truth, but which is at its core, patently false.
This is where the Canadian media has profoundly failed in their duty to Canadians. Unlike Stephen Colbert, members of Canada’s media along with Members of Parliament are easily deluded by the use of truthiness concepts like tax leakage and are happy to internalize them as if they were the god given truth, when in fact they are nothing more than patent lies.
I think it would take Stephen Colbert about three nanoseconds to realize that something like tax leakage, that is being “proven” by the government by way of 18 pages of blacked out documents, that were subsequently demanded to be returned by the corrupt government that issued them, is probably a government scam in the making and that tax leakage is not anything resembling the truth, or even truthiness, but simply patent lie.
A patent lie that caused Canadians to lose $35 billion of their life savings at the hands of Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, in no different a way than investors lost money at the hands of Bernie Madoff.
This sure would make for a great show, in which Steve Colbert scoops the entire Canadian media along with the CBC in exposing Jim Flaherty as Canada’s own answer to Bernie Madoff. It would be an expose of Olympic proportions!
Can’t wait. Does anyone out there have Stephen Colbert’s cell phone number? I need to get a hold of him, before the Canadian media gets to covering this story in a way that they have failed to since November 1, 2006.
