Are you familiar with The Progress Report? A progressive e-news. Recent topics include red state/blue state, Cuba-U.S. relations, Newtown, climate change, etc. Get your progressive fix regularly.

And check out the 12-18-14 issue, saying goodbye to the Colbert Report. A great piece with Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem. Clips from Colbert’s Congressional testimony about the plight of migrant workers. His Super PAC. And more.

With the Daily Show (Jon Stewart) and the Colbert Report…. Watchers really learned truths rather than truthiness.

P.S. Yes, I know his final show was 12-18-14. I watched it. And I’m actually writing this blog on December 19. But sometimes I intentionally don’t post blogs about a topic immediately. I want to surprise you later. So for whatever day I decide to post this blog… I’ll bet some of you are already missing Monsieur Colbert of the Report. I wonder if you’re liking the real S.C. on the new station.
