Stephen Colbert is not a Fan of Reference Books

The Chicago Tribune and many other newspapers ran an Associated Press story this morning reporting that "truthiness' is the word of the year, according to dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster. You can see the story at Forbes' web site.

In the story Stephen Colbert, who is credited with coining the word, says, "Though I'm no fan of reference books and their fact-based agendas, I am a fan of anyone who chooses to honor me."

I must confess that I have a fact-based agenda, too. Sorry, Stephen.

Hi, I do know it is a joke. I enjoy the show, too. I just wanted to share the quote with my friends.
