Colbert Report: The lighter side of Bernie


If you’re looking for a nice break from the doom and gloom, check out the "Colbert Report" from Tuesday.

Colbert devotes the first segment of the episode to telling the tale of someone hurt significantly by the economic crisis, it is a tale about a man named Bernie.

Among the highlights Colbert clears up what has been confusing many observers. Madoff ran a Ponzi scheme, not a Fonzie scheme, “where you defraud a juke box out of thousands of dollars in nickels and avoid tax liability by using a bathroom as an office.”
