Jonathan Cohn on the Colbert Report

12 Aug

In case you didn’t see it last night, The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn was interviewed on the Colbert Report. It was remarkable that Cohn was actually able to deliver some key points about health reform, despite Colbert’s typical way of stealing the interview through mockery, sarcasm, and hilarious nonsense. If you watch the video, you can sense that Cohn doesn’t want to get sucked into the back-and-forth with Colbert, and fortunately, it worked. He even manages to put the heat on Colbert by referencing the show’s own “health care plan” in order to discount the empty rhetoric of “death panels.” Classic.
