March 3, 2011- If the protesters in Wisconsin don't want to be falsely portrayed as violent, they should start being more violent, according to Stephen Colbert.
At least that's the suggestion he gave Wednesday night when pretending to defend Fox News from allegations that they used misleading footage of heated protests to paint peaceful Wisconsin protesters as violent. That allegation stems from footage of an altercation at a protest in California that was shown on The O'Reilly Factor during a discussion about violence in Wisconsin.
"Shocking footage from Madison Wisconsin," Colbert said. "They're not only bussing in people from out of state, they're also bussing in palm trees."
"If Wisconsinites wanted O'reilly to use footage of their protest while he was talking about violence in Wisconsin, those peaceful Wisconsin protesters should have been violent," he added.
