Stephen Colbert Update: New York Schools pay kids to get A’s

September 14, 2007

Yesterday night on the Stephen Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert interviewed the head of education in New York.  What could have been so cool about that?  Well the New York is testing a new program where they pay kids hundreds of dollars a year just to get A’s.  At first I was skeptical, but they tried it in Dallas and substantial results were produced.

Right now education is experiencing problems in America, hundreds of thousands of students are dropping out all over the place.  Students are bored and they aren’t paying attention to teachers.  But no ones trying to change that, people are too afraid to take risks.  Except for New York!  I look forward to seeing if their new program is a shining star of a flopping fish.  Yes a flopping fish (my new explanation).

No Stephen Colbert may have been from Jewish descent but 2000 years ago many Jewish people became Christians.  He’s not Jewish but his ancestors long ago probably were.

Viacom putting The Daily Show online for Free

September 8, 2007

This is a great move for Viacom they are putting The Daily Show with Jon Stewart online for free.  I expect it will have many ads but it is a step in the right direction.  Viacom must realize that TV and the internet will one day be one.  It is too bad the Colbert Report isn’t being put on the internet, or on YouTube.  Viacom needs to partner with YouTube and provide access to their tv series as long as they get 50% of the profit YouTube makes on them.  Although Viacom has it’s own media player it is choked full of ads and it just can’t beat YouTube.  By putting shows on a quality site like YouTube it shows that they are trying to move on to the internet.

Andrew Keen: The internet is worse than Nazi’s

August 18, 2007

A few says ago on the Stephen Colbert report Andrew Keen writer of the book called “The cult of Amateurs” accused the internet of being worse than Nazi’s because it ruins culture.  So am I going to believe that a communist regime that if it had succeeded would have whiped out all art on the face of this planet is worse than spreading art across the internet?  The thing is Nazi’s stole art and the internet spreads art, I mean whats the point of having art if not everyone can see it.  The future is the internet, the future is a society where everyone can have any information at the command of their keystrokes.

Stephen Colbert is 3/4 Jewish Maybe

August 17, 2007

Yesterday we found out that Stephen Colbert may be 3/4 Jewish because there was a 3/4 chance that his DNA matched a Jewish descent.  On his show he also took a stab at the creator of Daily Ko’s calling him a Nazi in his interview with the creator.  That was a hilarious episode that I will always cherish.
