Look, whoever keeps deleting the comment from Colbert, I have one question: why do you hate informing the public? It was on national television and was a newsworthy event. And besides, Stephen Colbert is responsible for at least half of the traffic to this site, so a little thanks is in order. 08:40, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

I'm as much of a fan of Colbert as anyone, but frankly just being the subject of a joke-even a funny joke-is not newsworthy, much less notable enough to be in an encyclopedia. There are several other Stephen Colbert related incidents on wikipedia that are far more significant than this one, and I suggest it would be silly to include this one.

      • This comment would hold more weight if Wikipedia were, in fact, an encyclopedia. Quit taking yourselves to seriously and have fun.. geez. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:48, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Whatever is decided about containing the reference to his hair color in the article, I think "brown-haired-guy-who-is-not-steve-doocy" should redirect here. 20:42, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

It should not belong. It falls under the area of trivia, and is not really relevant to BK. Furthermore it is like an inside joke. If you don't know who Steve Doocy is or you don't know the relevance to why SC even mentions it, then it makes no sense whatsoever. Arzel 15:16, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, but if you DO know the reference, but don't know whether BK IS the brown-haired-guy-who-is-not-Steve-Doocy, then you're out of luck. This should be on the page, because I was trying to find out precisely this information and I could not find it here. It belongs. Pudge (talk) 20:25, 3 June 2008 (UTC)


Shouldn't there be a "Controversies" section in this page? This guy always seems to be putting his foot in his mouth (i.e. the Janeane Garafalo interview, London train bombing comments, suggesting car bombs be used offensively in Iran). —Preceding unsigned comment added by PeteU (talkcontribs) 14:33, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

If you have sources and links perhaps to the comments in question, they could be integrated into the prose of the article, but probably not as a separate trivia section, whatever the title may be... --Bradeos Graphon (talk) 19:12, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Agreed, there should be a section on controversies. The following submission was recently deleted: "During a discussion on Fox News about a Code Pink member heckling Hillary Clinton at a recent event, host Brian Kilmeade said that people who confront politicians are "threatening" and should be Tased or "beaten to a pulp,". He went on to say: “They should tase (with a Taser) this guy,” Kilmead says. “At one point with security so high and tensions on edge, don't you think they're going to get at the very least tased or beaten to a pulp by somebody? These people look threatening.” " This is evidence of a public figure advocating a violent response to the use of free speech. Even if the event was closed and unlawfully interrupted by a protester, the 'beaten to a pulp' response Kilmeade advocated is an illegal one. LPFixIt (talk) 19:59, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

I think you are missing the point of controversies. Just because you think something is controversal doesn't mean that it is. You need to have some context of what was controversal and some independent reliable sources reporting on the controvery for inclusion. Read up on WP:BLP for proper inclusion of controveral or contencious material into an article. What you have dne thus far is impart your opinion, which is completely different. Arzel (talk) 20:49, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

I feel like there must be more controversies caused by his comments than just the one new one. He's always saying things like this, there must be sufficient reaction to some of them to warrant more. --Muboshgu (talk) 16:06, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Just becuase he said something that you think is controversial doesn't mean that it has been controversial in the larger world. This is a BLP not a gossip page. Arzel (talk) 19:59, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Why was the entire section about his pure genes and race on air comments deleted? Castaa (talk) 23:07, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

That citation has been deleted three times, once under the guise of a (correctly) mis-identified label ("racism" rather than "national identism," which would be more accurate a description of the comment), and twice with no reason; all three deletions were by non-registered users. In my opinion, the comment belongs in this "Controversies" section, and I have re-added it, with a caption that is a portion of the direct quote. RougeRogue (talk) 01:20, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

WikiGods: Please Lock[edit]

This article is being actively vandalized. --Purpleslog (talk) 13:43, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

I second that motion. Mr. Kilmeade has repeatedly asked that his entry on Wikipedia be vandalized. Such a comment was made on this morning's show to offer evidence of how "inaccurate" Wikipedia is. -- Steven Williamson (HiB2Bornot2B) - talk ▓▒░ Go Big Blue! ░▒▓ 15:31, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Colbert reference[edit]

Just wondering if we could or should make note that Stephen Colbert refers to him as "The brown-haired guy who is not Steve Doocy."
Fashnable1 (talk) 06:16, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Nope. It basically fails due to WP:TRIVIA and WP:RECENT. Any time it's been added to the article, it's been summarily deleted. --Ebyabe (talk) 14:38, 31 August 2008 (UTC)


Which one of his parents is of Italian lineage? Which is Irish? With a name like Kilmeade, his father must be Irish and his mother Italian.This relates to his comment that "In America we marry everybody, we marry Italians and Irish." He knew from experience.Lestrade (talk) 21:16, 14 January 2010 (UTC)Lestrade

On March 25, 2010, he was discussing a high school that forbid the singing of "Ave Maria." He said, "My mom's name is Maria." What is his mother's Italian maiden name?Lestrade (talk) 15:32, 25 March 2010 (UTC)Lestrade

Photo unclear[edit]

The photo does not clearly state which is Brian so far as I can tell. I still do not know which he is.--Senor Freebie (talk) 00:58, 18 May 2010 (UTC) -It is that...donkey type looking guy on the left. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:07, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
