Every Late Night Talk Show Is A Sleazy Plutocratic Rim Job
Caitlin Johnstone

These notes are so tone-deaf that it’s depressing when people don’t turn their ears in disbelief. What is the narrative being peddled by Colbert? I can’t tell. It’s the same kind of non-sequitur response we saw when Trump bombed Syria. We can’t have something so good like an escalated war in the middle east be perceived as bad, so I guess we nod to Trump on this?
We can’t have the election villain Comey narrative outweigh the Trump-Russia narrative?
I can’t keep up with what’s supposed to be happening. Sad that it doesn’t seem to matter what tune is being played — people are still fine with dancing. 
It seems like it’s a question of if, not when North Korea will become an “untenable threat to democracy and world peace.” That’s big game and we still haven’t digested Iraq.
