Stephen Colbert Has Fun With Newt Gingrich's Patriotism-Based Infidelity Excuse (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 11th 2011 12:00PM
Earlier this week, Newt Gingrich explained his past infidelities by saying they were brought on" by how passionately I felt about this country" -- a passion that caused the former Speaker of the House to work "far too hard," thus driving him into the arms of women he wasn't married to.

On 'The Colbert Report' (weekdays, 11:30 PM ET on Comedy Central), Stephen Colbert took a whack at that softball.

"Newt only cheated on his wives because he's so passionate about America," Colbert explained. "Patriotism takes many forms, some people join the army, some people wear a flag pin, and some people cheat on their wife while she's in the hospital with cancer."

Elizabeth Edwards Talks to Larry King About Cancer, Life Without a Man (VIDEO)

Elizabeth Edwards Talks to Larry King About Cancer, Life Without a ManWell, Larry King may be retiring from his job as host of 'Larry King Live' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN). But that doesn't mean that he can't still have fascinating guests on his show. On the latest episode, King welcomes Elizabeth Edwards, the soon-to-be ex-wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards.

Elizabeth has been fighting a much publicized battle against breast cancer. And famously, her husband John cheated on her with another woman, leading to their pending divorce. While talking with Larry, Elizabeth discussed her struggles with the disease -- and what it felt like to no longer have a man in her life.

Larry asked Edwards about the topic of "affection." Elizabeth had this to say: "That does make sad, to think that I may live out the rest of my days ... without someone ... holding me."

Forget Seacrest and Piers Morgan. Here's Who Should Take Over for Larry King

by Jane Murphy, posted Jun 30th 2010 6:30PM
John EdwardsIt's been barely 24 hours since Larry King announced the end of his 25 year old CNN show on Twitter (Larry King tweets?!), then on his show. 'Larry King Live' will end in September, and perhaps not a moment too soon.

So let the guessing begin: who will assume Larry's suspenders? Piers Morgan? Ryan Seacrest? We humbly ask CNN not to rush into anything and consider our choices for their coveted prime time slot.

John Edwards. With CNN's recent hire of Eliot Spitzer, disgrace is hot! Spitzer was actually quite good backing up Dylan Ratigan on MSNBC, and Edwards is even smoother (perhaps too smooth). Years of campaigning -- not to mention his background as a trial lawyer – would seem to make asking the tough questions and offering analysis just about second nature to the former Vice Presidential candidate. And hey, where is Edwards anyway?

Rielle Hunter to Talk About "Johnny" Edwards on Oprah

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 6th 2010 3:03PM
Rielle HunterLike so many other mistresses before her, Rielle Hunter will be appearing on a daytime talk show to discuss her side of the affair with former vice presidential candidate John Edwards. Wisely, Hunter decided to appear on the talk show of the Queen Mother of all the other talk shows: Oprah Winfrey.

Hunter has already had an interview with GQ Magazine that included some questionable photos that supposedly "had her in tears." Oprah managed to get the sought-after interview over other talk show hosts as Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters. It is said that John Edwards encouraged her to go on Oprah's show (but that's from the National Enquirer, so treat it with the journalistic respect it deserves).

The saga of a mistress in politics is old as the hills. Ask people like Gary Hart and Bill Clinton about the subject (all the aforementioned are Democrats, but a list of Republican affairs could be named just as easily). As Oprah continues to nab high-profile interviews like this one, daytime syndicated television is seeing just how tough things are going to be without her.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Rielle Hunter: 'Put Your Pants On' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 15th 2010 3:00PM
It seems that Kermit the Frog, like Sarah Palin, can now count on staunch support from Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Hasselbeck loudly criticized Rielle Hunter for a revealing photo that appears in the April issue of GQ magazine. Hunter, who had an affair with politician John Edwards that resulted in a love child, poses with an array of stuffed children's characters while wearing a dress shirt and nothing else.

What You Missed Last Night: Kimmel and the "Best Actor in Real Life"

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 8th 2010 1:30PM
'Jimmy Kimmel Live' has a post-Oscars live show every year and last night he had a variety of guests, including Christoph Waltz, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon, John Krasinksi, Ted Danson, Rob Lowe, Keith Urban, Sting, Matthew McConaughey, and many others. He also showed one award they didn't show on the Oscars, the one for "Best Actor in Real Life." I think the right guy won.

Oprah Lays Into Andrew Young About John Edwards Scandal (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 24th 2010 10:48PM
Oprah Winfrey, Andrew Young, John EdwardsThe John Edwards scandal just gets better – or worse, depending on your perspective – by the minute. His former campaign aid Andrew Young appeared on 'Oprah Winfrey' (weekdays, syndicated) to talk about the scandal, as well as his book 'The Politician.'

Oprah Winfrey did not cut him any slack. "A lot of people would take a fall for people, but this, to me, was bigger than that," she said. "It wasn't just about taking a fall for John Edwards, it was about literally deceiving every American who was going to vote for him."

Young was definitely in an interesting situation. Where does his job leave off and his sense of moral duty to the country -- and Elizabeth Edwards -- begin?

Colbert, Clinton, Obama and Edwards take on Philadelphia - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 18th 2008 10:05AM
What in the hell happened last night on The Colbert Report? Or perhaps I'm really wondering why I attended Monday's taping of TCR in Philadelphia and not the final and certainly most epic one.

In true Colbert fashion, TCR ended its four-night run in the City of Brotherly Love with a big ol' Democratic bang. Thanks to Chris Matthews' big mouth, the nation expected Hillary Clinton's "surprise" appearance, but little did we know both Barack Obama and John Edwards would be appearing as well... On the same night! Despite the fact that this was all a blatantly desperate attempt to get a little Colbert Bump action (Edwards knows it's too late, right? I mean, what with him dropping out of the race and all), there really is no better way to seem hip to that all-important youth vote.

A Daily Show: January 31, 2008

Jon StewartEveryone knows that CNN can be a bit of a sensory overload, especially with its fancy new floating pie charts and whatnot. The flashiness took a huge jump when Situation Room first came around and showed off its needlessly numerous screens. At least some fun finally came of it, in the form of a totally random mix-up during recent coverage of John Edward's concession. Apparently, dancing Spongebob Squarepants makes everything better. That's right, no context for you.

A Daily Show: January 30, 2008

John OliverIn case you missed it, Jon made a very special appearance on The Colbert Report Tuesday night. The situation is already a bit confusing, and Jon's explanation of it didn't help much. Actually, don't even think about it too much. Just focus on the fact that Jon is a very tiny man. What he lacks in height, he makes up with well-played self-deprecation.

"Indecision 2008": Big news! John Edwards and Rudy Giuliani have both dropped from the race. Edwards fixed up his hair and delivered a speech to say good-bye and Giuliani, accompanied by his supporters and funny eyebrows, dropped out in Florida. He also got an earful from the media for putting all his eggs in the Florida basket, whatever that means.

Tina Fey optimistic strike will end soon

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 28th 2007 1:41PM

Garry MarshallA bunch of TV stars, including Tina Fey, Jack McBrayer, Seth Myers, Rashida Jones, Richard Belzer, Colin Quinn, Kristin Davis, and Michael Emerson from Lost are part of a video over at The Huffington Post talking about why writers are important and why the strike is important to the future of the industry. They're joined by Presidential candidate John Edwards and big screen stars Tim Robbins and Danny Glover.

Talks have resumed and parties involved say that things have been productive. Fey even says (it's a little hard to hear in the video) that she's optimistic that a deal can be reached within the next week because there's no reason why people can't go back to work.

It's funny to see Emerson talking about the strike. He still has that Ben "look" in his eye and you expect him to say something like "the writers should be paid for their work...TRUST ME, I WOULDN'T LIE TO YOU, JACK."

Jon StewartFirst up, coverage of Karl Rove being, um, super-hip at the Radio-Television Correspondents' Dinner. "Let's say Jeffrey Dahmer came to your Bar Mitzvah and turned out to be a great dancer... He's still Jeffrey Dahmer." Oh, Brad Sherwood and Colin Mochrie... For even participating in this event, you two have disappointed me so. I think everyone should experience the horrid sight of MC Karl Rove bustin' a move, because after seeing it, all the sad things in life don't seem so bad anymore. As service to society, I have included the video in this post after the jump.

Viewers rip Katie Couric's interview with John and Elizabeth Edwards

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 26th 2007 7:39PM
Katie Couric with John and Elizabeth EdwardsKatie Couric can't win, can she? Her version of the CBS Evening News is consistently criticized for being too nice, happy, and morning-show-like. But when Katie gets down to business and does a serious interview with someone, she's knocked for being inappropriately stern.

That's what Couric is facing the day after her 60 Minutes interview with presidential candidate John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth. During the interview, Couric asked the couple tough questions about whether it was wise for the Edwardses to continue on the campaign trail now that Elizabeth's cancer has metastasized and become inoperable. Instead of proceeding in her usual warm, smiling manner, Couric decided to be deadly serious, keeping a straight face and pursuing lines of questioning that started with "Some say," like when she said to the couple, "Some have suggested that you're capitalizing on this."

After CBSNews.com posted the interview and allowed viewer comments, many took Couric to task for not being understanding enough, especially given her family history (her husband died of colon cancer in 1998).
