14. I think it is important for them NOT to push it.
Which is to say, if Stewart and Colbert directed everyone's attention to the speech, it would be in the public eye because of their direction. It would be a "made" media event, and it could be dismissed thusly. But because they let it go, and because they let the independant media DEMAND that it be given attention, I think it has a lot more power. It shows that what Colbert did resonated with individual citizens, and that the event is newsworthy because it's news, not because Stewart and Colbert hyped it for personal gain.
