Stephen Colbert Spotlights North Carolina Paper

By E&P Staff: "

NEW YORK The Rocky Mount (N.C.) Telegram gained national exposure late Thursday night when Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's 'Colbert Report,' cited his recent appearance in the daily, in a drawing by a local schoolgirl named Lily.

Colbert held up what he called the 'cover' of the newspaper--he later admitted it was actually page B5--which featured a winning drawing that the girl did, showing Colbert. It showed him carrying a bucket, which he called a 'bucket of truth.'

To reward the 11-year-old, he promised to send her a 'Colbert Report' t-shirt, in an extra-large adult size, perhaps so she would have something to look forward to in growing up.

He also noted that it was odd that the paper has nothing to do with the Rocky Mountains. The drawing appeared in the Dec. 9 edition.

The top story on the newspaper's Web site Thursday might deserve further mention on the Colbert show: A report on the use of a 'motorcycle hearse' in a local man's funeral, complete with picture. It is reputedly one of nine such hearses in the country.

An E&P web search turns up this additional interesting bit of truthiness: a local contractor ran for mayor of Rocky Mount in 2003 named Danny Colbert. Coincidence or liberal conspiracy? "
