Colbert Report wins 2007 Peabody Award

We all know the tale of Bill O'Reilly "misspeaking," four times, about winning Peabody Awards at Inside Edition, his previous tabloid program before the Factor.

In fact, as Al Franken documented in his Lies and the lying Liars who Tell Them, the show won a Polk Award the year after O'Reilly left, and he was not involved with the winning work.

Tonight 4/2/08 Stephen Colbert announced that his show, The Colbert Report , has won a second Peabody Award. Eat your heart out, Papa Bear.
