Stephen Colbert insults John Stossel

The host of The Colbert Report came up with this funny quip on his show June 24th, during The Word segment. While looking at why mainstream media seems to have lost interest in the war in Afghanistan, this is what he had to say:

Even though this month was the bloodiest in this 9-year war, according to the Project for Excellence in Journalism, coverage of the war filled only 2.8% of the overall news hole. The news hole is what we insiders call the total available news time. It’s also what John Stossel’s employees call him behind his back.

Stossel was the co-anchor of ABC’s 20/20 until September 2009 when he moved over to Fox News.
