Fake News - The Colbert Report

Here is an interview on a "fake news" channel, The Colbert Report, of Samantha Power, the woman we saw in No End in Sight, talking about her new book about Sergio Vieira de Mello, the U.N. fix-it guy that was killed in the truck bomb incident in August 2003. She called him the "most important man we've never heard of."

Is fake news good for America?
No I don’t believe fake news is good for America, but shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are just made to be funny but there has to be limits. Fake news isn’t good for America because there are so many serious things going on like terrorism and elections and people should take them serious. For example, Bill Clinton was made fun of on one of those shows and because of that he lost the election. Those kinds of shows do affect what people think and sometimes they don’t know what is true of not. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report kind of makes Democracy seem like a joke, they exaggerate and make things up and it gets confusing. And we end up believing things that aren’t true. All these reason support why fake news isn’t good for America.
