  • Stephen Colbert's Wikipedia Account Suspended

    Man, I've really been out of it this week if I'm just finding out about this Friday morning.

    Apparently during Monday's show THE WORD was "Wikiality" i.e., the "reality that exists when you make something up and enough people agree with you".

    Anyway, just read the article and it will explain it better than I ever could.

    Here's a video of the segment, though YouTube is having technical difficulties at the moment.

    And always remember, Oregon is Idaho's Portugal!! ;)

        I for one never let the facts get in the way of what's true.

        Wikiality will prevail!

            I find his ability to pin down truthiness downright Lincolnish.
            Peace through fear... since 1947!

              In the segment, Colbert logs on to the Wikipedia article about his show to find out whether he usually refers to Oregon as "California's Canada or Washington's Mexico." Upon learning that he has referred to Oregon as both, he demonstrates how easy it is to disregard both references and put in a completely new one (Oregon is Idaho's Portugal), declaring it "the opinion I've always held, you can look it up."

              Colbert goes on to declare that he doesn't believe George Washington had slaves.

              If I want to say he didn't that's my right, and now, thanks to Wikipedia *taps keyboard* it's also a fact.

              Here's the fun part - Colbert actually did this. The Wikipedia articles on his show and George Washington were both edited by the user Stephencolbert to reflect the changes he declared on air as he tapped at his computer around 23:35 UTC - which is 6:35pm on the East Coast, during the taping of his show, hours before it aired.
              That's great! :D
