I watch shows like Colbert, Seth Meyers and Samantha Bee, but not to laugh. They are simply the only people who report things we need to hear.

Comedians (or in olden times, the court jester) were frequently the ones who told those in power what they didn’t want to hear. The same applies to artists and musicians.

It is no accident that authoritarians (such as conservatives) try to regulate what is comedy, art, and music.
