Dear BillO, This Is What Winning A Peabody Award Actually Looks Like:

Many C&L readers remember the halcyon days when the worst lie Bill O'Reilly ever told was that his old show "Inside Edition" had won a Peabody A

Colbert celebrates

Many C&L readers remember the halcyon days when the worst lie Bill O'Reilly ever told was that his old show "Inside Edition" had won a Peabody Award, the oldest and most prestigious award given to electronic media. You may recall Al Franken also having lots of fun debunking that lie. Now it turns out that The Colbert Report, which "some people say" (ha) is a thinly veiled parody of The O'Reilly Factor, has actually won a Peabody award. Let's hope Mr. O'Reilly sends Mr. Colbert a congratulatory fruit basket.

Update: Okay, comment number 24 is good enough to bring up from below:

Colbert should run around saying he won a Polk, forcing people to remind him it was actually a Peabody.
