Stephen Colbert on being named most informative news source: "I'm incredibly sorry"

"I must work harder, at informing you less."

Stephen Colbert apologized last night for The Colbert Report being named by the University of Pennsylvania Annenberg Public Policy Center as a more reliable source of information on campaign finance reform than news channels like CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, as well as broadcast news outlets and newspapers.

To celbrate, the Comedy Central host swigged from a bottle of Dom Perignon, which he implied he paid for with money raised by his Colbert Super Pac ("Making A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow"), and claimed "I never intended to be an educator. What's next: Getting paid like one?"

"I let you down, Nation," Colbert said. "Clearly, I must work harder, at informing you less."
