Last night, one-time Slate Political Gabfest special guest Stephen Colbert praised a new feature on "news, opinion, and stone-roofing supply site Slate.com." Granted, he was in character, so you may detect sarcasm in this segment.
I prefer to think this was all sincere and that Colbert really did read about "a Malaysian businessman trading hookers for Navy secrets" seven times. But watch and decide for yourself. As that handy counter at the bottom of the video informs you, it will only take 3 1/2 minutes of your time.
