Colbert Report Full EpisodesPolitical HumorTodd's idiotic response to Glenn Greenwald's word boarding of his Villager argument that an investigation of the Bush administration over prisoner abuse treatment would turn into a beltway weenie food fight and America couldn't handle it...

Greenwald: Isn't the best thing to do..to say to a prosecutor, "Were crimes committed...have this be treated like every other accusation of crime?"

Todd: Glenn, in a perfect world, yes. If you could guarantee me that we could keep this debate off of television...

Todd is a TV reporter, but wants to keep an investigation off of TV. I mean, this is the state of our media, folks. It just might be enlightening. Hey, just keep running the Gates/Obama story over and over again. That's what America wants. Not truth about torture or prisoner abuses...

Can you help us out?
