The character of Colbert himself can be best described as a StrawmanPolitical of a news pundit, a mega-conservative who embodies all the stereotypes about conservative people in one convenient shell; indeed, most of Colbert's political jokes were little more than strawman-arguments of the opposition. Much like its progenitor, it [[NewsParody reads the real news in a humorous tone]]. It's also coined the words "truthiness" and "wikiality". The latter one is a portmanteau of {{Wiki/Wikipedia}} and reality: basically the practice of RewritingReality by bringing democracy to information. "If enough people agree on it, it becomes true" -- the example given being Colbert's assertion that elephant populations had tripled since 31 January 2006.

* MartyStu: [[invoked]] Tek Jansen, hero of Colbert's SpaceOpera novel, which is presented on the show in the form of animated shorts, and has inspired a SpinOff GraphicNovel. He's {{Badass}} to the Nth degree, is unbelievably good-looking, can bed any female he likes (even the non-humans)...and looks just like Colbert.

''The Colbert Report'' (pronounced Col-''[[ItsPronouncedTroPAY bear]]'' Re-''[[GratuitousFrench pore]]'') was the Emmy award winning (Best Writing - Variety, 2008, 2010, and 2013; Best Variety, 2013) SpinOff from ''Series/TheDailyShow'', featuring the screen persona of news anchor Creator/StephenColbert. The show operated as a parody of news talk programs such as ''Series/TheOReillyFactor''. (When the show was pitched as "Stephen Colbert parodying Bill O'Reilly", it was picked up immediately without even a pilot.) It aired on Creator/ComedyCentral, immediately following its sister program.
