Yes, Cohen is right. Colbert, obviously, is the bully. A man who leaks info to discredit his critics? A man who launches a war to feel tough and be a War President? A man who uses the the press as a punching bag? Nope, not a bully.Watching Colbert slam the President when he was only a few feet away wasn't always fun. But it was a rare chance to pop the info-bubble in which Washington insiders seem to operate, and I applaud him for saying what he felt needed saying. Sadly, those things haven't been funny to most of us for a long long time.

Cohen refuses to see the truth in Colbert's jokes, because to acknowledge that truth would be to acknowledge his own failure as a member of an incompetent fourth estate.
Update: here are the video links, with the whole performance captured in three parts, 1, 2, 3.
