Stephen Colbert Wins Peabody Award For SuperPAC Satire

Comedy show “The Colbert Report” won a prestigious Peabody Award on Wednesday for its segments on SuperPACs, in which host Stephen Colbert launched his own SuperPAC as a satirical protest against political spending.

Launching his own SuperPAC as a satirical protest against megabucks politics, Colbert mixed cerebral comedy with inspired sight gags, interviews and preposterously funny monologues

, the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, which administers the awards, said in a statement.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony in New York on May 21 hosted by Patrick Stewart.
