Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. withdrew from the Presidential contest and endorsed Mitt Romney yesterday.  Later that evening, Comedy Central late night host, Stephen Colbert claimed that he had pushed Huntsman out of the race.

Ok, that’s all fine and good for a laugh, but then Politico decides they haven’t jumped enough sharks and writes this story: “Colbert: I scared Huntsman off”

C’mon.  Really?!? Politico needs to decide whether it’s an actual news gathering entity, or just a gossip rag.  You’d never read this kind of story in the New York Times.

    When you can’t separate comedy from news even the news can be readily mistaken for a joke.
