He entertains to a largely democratic fanbase

...there's nothing to say he can't believe what he says in character. To me it looked like Colbert was genuinely shocked for a moment when the guest said Wilson was the "best" president.

Jon Stewart would never make mention of the "illuminati" in relation to the fed, let alone say the fed is controlled by an illuminati. The mere fact that Colbert says this is a good thing in my opinion, for it could prompt people to actually investigate the issue themselves and find their own truths.
