Stephen Colbert offered a satirical sendoff yesterday for disgraced Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly, who has been ousted from the network amid accusations of sexual harassment. During last night's monologue for The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert reprised the persona that made him famous as the host of The Colbert Report - a parody of ultra-conservative Fox News shows anchored by pundits like O'Reilly.
The faux Colbert wagged his finger at America for turning on O'Reilly. "Stay strong, Papa Bear," he said while stifling tears during the special address. "Oh God, is this really happening?!"
