CHARLOTTE, NC - When it comes to reporting on the Democratic National Convention, late night show The Colbert Report looked to ABC15 Mornings for some answers.
A clip of ABC15’s Kirk Yuhnke was featured on Stephen Colbert’s satirical news show Wednesday night.
Watch the clip at the bottom of this story.
In the segment, Colbert talked about "the media's duty to report Michelle Obama's record tweet numbers without the liberal filter of meaning something."
On Tuesday, the first lady’s speech at the Democratic National Convention sparked Twitter users to type out 28,000 tweets per minute.
According to CNN, that’s nearly double the reaction on Twitter during GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention.
“Now given these unprecedented tweet numbers, what do they mean? Are they good or bad? For more, we go to someone else,” Colbert said.
Then it cuts to the clip with ABC15’s Yuhnke around 1:30 in the video.
“It doesn’t measure whether or not they were positive tweets or negative remarks,” Yuhnke said in the video. “Just some interesting numbers. Who knows what they mean.”
“Who knows?” Colbert said as it cuts back to him at his desk. “Who cares?”
The crowd laughs.
Check it out below. It's short and sweet.
