Edit request on 20 June 2013[edit]

Ref: "Academic Freedom and Tenure: St. Louis University: AAUP Bulletin 42.1 (Spring,1956) p. 108n.1 Dr. Pisano is correct. See reference above Stephen Colbert's father was Dean of the medical school at St. Louis University, not Washington University (as the article presently says). James Colbert's picture is on display at the med school at St Louis University. The resemblance to Stephen is really striking, so much so that I'm sure many think it's a portrait of the famous son, not the father, but the nameplate below the painting leaves no doubt.

James Colbert subsequently served as Provost at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. The library and education building is named for him now, with the name right over the entrance to the building.

I also doubt that he was dean at Yale. Most likely he was chair of The department of medicine at Yale. I do not know this for sure, but it would be odd for someone to leave a dean ship at a pretigious institution like Yale and take a less prestigious one.

Etta Pisano, MD Dean of the College of Medicine Medical University of SC

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Sorry, but you're word isn't good enough to satisfy Wikipedia's sourcing policy. Mdann52 (talk) 12:26, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 5 November 2013[edit]

Stephen Colbert's "Daft Punk" video should be mentioned — Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.154.248.217 (talk)

Did it receive much coverage in reliable 3rd party sources? DP76764 (Talk) 15:43, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Twitter Controversy?[edit]

Should the recent controversy over tweets Colbert made be mentioned on here? Thehack771 (talk) 18:21, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

It's probably better off on the show's article (or the character's article). DP76764 (Talk) 19:08, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
I assume this thread is referencing the recent tweet from @ColbertReport and the trending #CancelColbert hashtag?
To me, I think the best location for that content would be in the article for The Colbert Report. Neither the performer nor the production staff of the Colbert Report made the tweet (they were made by Comedy Central staff, who controlled the Twitter account "@ColbertReport"). But the tweet did gain media attention about the program and the character, there's more than enough third-party sources to reference the content. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 19:32, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Colbert won't host "Late Show" in character[edit]

Worth mentioning? 173.160.130.14 (talk) 00:05, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Seems like it's worth a mention (though I'd kind of think it goes without saying). Question is: which article to put it on (this one, the character one, or one of the ones about the shows). DP76764 (Talk) 00:27, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
