Herman Cain's campaign ad gets buzz, Ben & Jerry's endorses Occupy Wall Street, and Susan Saladoff explores the myth of frivolous lawsuits.

>> Stephen: TONIGHT, A NEW

HERMAN CAIN AD GOES VIRAL.

AND RICK PERRY WANTS TO

VACCINATE TWELVE YEAR OLD GIRLS

AGAINST IT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

PLUS, OCCUPY WALL STREET GETS A

CORPORATE BACKER.

PFF.

I WAS TOTALLY INTO THEM BEFORE

THEY SOLD OUT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND MY GUEST SUSAN SALADOFF HAS

A NEW DOCUMENTARY ABOUT

FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS. IF ANYBODY

ASKS, THAT STARBUCKS COFFEE

PAR-BOILED MY NUT-SACK.

[ LAUGHTER ]

GADDAFI WILL BE BURIED IN A

SECRET LOCATION THAT NO ONE CAN

FIND.

MAYBE THA

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

[CROWD CHANTING STEPHEN] THANK

YOU SO MUCH

WELCOME TO THE REPORT, THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

AND IF THERE ARE ANY RUSSIAN

IMMIGRANTS IN THE AUDIENCE I'D

LIKE TO SAY A BIG [SPEAKING

RUSSIAN]

[ LAUGHTER ]

NATION, YOU KNOW I'M A HUGE FAN

OF APPLE.

I'M ALWAYS THE FIRST TO HAVE THE

ipHONE, tHE iPAD, THE iV.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT DRIPS THE INTERNET RIGHT INTO

YOUR ARM.

IT'S COOL.

YOU'LL HEAR ABOUT IT IN SIX

MONTHS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO OF COURSE, I WAS FIRST IN

LINE TO BUY THE bIG NEW STEVE

JOBS BIOGRAPHY THAT CAME OUT

JUST YESTERDAY.

BUT NOW THAT I HAVE IT, AND I

MEAN THIS AS NO DISRESPECT TO

MR. JOBS, IT IS A HUGE

DISAPPOINTMENT.

LOOK.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOTHING.

NOTHING.

NOTHING.

YOU TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN, IT

DOESN'T RE-ORIENT.

IT JUST STAYS --

I CAN'T EVEN FIND WHERE I PUT MY

HEADPHONES IN.

TELL ME ABOUT STEVE JOBS.

WHERE IS THE NEAREST CHURCH OR

CAMERA STORE?

NOTHING!

THANKS, AT&T.

[ LAUGHTER ]

YOU KNOW WHAT?

VERSION.

I HEAR IT'S GOING TO HAVE A

REVOLUTIONARY SOFT COVER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOLKS, THIS POLITICAL SEASON,

LIKE MANY AMERICANS I'VE BEEN

SWEPT UP BY A CATEGORY 5

HURRMANCAIN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

HE'S THE WASHINGTON OUTSIDER

WHO'S NOT AFRAID TO SAY THE

THINGS THE NATION NEEDS TO HEAR

AND THEN CAN'T BELIEVE IT JUST

HEARD.

THINGS LIKE "LET'S ELECTROCUTE

MEXICANS" OR "I'M LEADING IN THE

POLLS."

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND THE LATEST CBS/NEW YORK

TIMES/TACO BELL POLL HAS CAIN AT

25% BEATING MITT ROMNEY AT 21%.

WHY?

WELL, A LOT OF THEORIES OUT

THERE.

SOME SAY IT'S CAIN'S BUSINESS

EXPERIENCE, SOME SAY IT'S HIS

SIMPLIFIED TAX PLAN, SOME SAY

IT'S JUST THAT HE'S NOT MITT

ROMNEY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OTHERS POINT TO THE FACT THAT

MITT ROMNEY IS MITT ROMNEY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WHATEVER THE REASON, CAIN'S A

REBEL WHOSE CAMPAIGN HAS

CAPTURED AMERICA'S HEART, AND

NOW HE'S RELEASED ANOTHER AD

THAT DOES NOT PLAY BY THE RULES.

>> MARK BLOCK HERE, SINCE

JANUARY I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE

OF BEING CHIEF OF STAFF TO

HERMAN CAIN.

WE'VE RUN A CAMPAIGN LIKE NO

BODY'S EVER SEEN.

BUT THEN AGAIN, AMERICA'S NEVER

SEEN A CANDIDATE LIKE HERMAN

CAIN.

WE NEED YOU TO GET INVOLVED.

BECAUSE TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS,

WE CAN TAKE THIS COUNTRY BACK.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: WOW, SOMETHING ABOUT

THAT GUY JUST SEEMS COOL.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[COUGHING] I CAN'T PUT MY FINGER

ON IT THOUGH.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OF COURSE, THE BED WETTERS IN

THE NERD PATROL DON'T GET IT.

>> IT MEANS DISASTER.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS AT ALL.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THE

CAMPAIGN MANAGER IS IN A

COMMERCIAL.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

CIGARETTE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE MUSIC.

I DON'T THE UNDERSTAND THE LOGIC

BEHIND THIS.

THIS MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.

YOU TALK ABOUT SHOOTING YOURSELF

IN THE FOOT.

>> Stephen: THAT'S STUPID, HE'S

NOT SHOOTING HIMSELF IN THE

FOOT.

HE'S SHOOTING HIMSELF IN THE

LUNGS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THIS IS SENDING THE STRONG

MESSAGE THAT HERMAN CAIN DOESN'T

JUST WANT TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES, HE WANTS TO BE

THE PRESIDENT OF FLAVOR COUNTRY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT FOX NEWS HOST AND ALFRED

HITCHCOCK LOVE INTEREST MEGYN

KELLY PROVED SHE GETS IT WHEN

SHE TALKED TO THE GUY IN THE AD.

>> WERE YOU TRYING TO APPEAL TO

FOLKS WHO ARE OUT THERE LIVING

REAL LIVES-- WORKING THE FARM,

WORKING IN DETROIT, THAT KIND OF

THING-- AS OPPOSED TO THE EAST

AND WEST COAST ELITE, PEOPLE IN

MEDIA CIRCLES WHO SHUN SMOKING

AND SORT OF REAL AMERICAN

THINGS?

>> Stephen: YES, THERE'S NOTHING

MORE REAL AMERICAN THAN SMOKING

CIGARETTES, THE CARCINOGEN OF

REAL AMERICANS LIKE JOHN WAYNE,

HUMPHREY BOGART, AND THE

MARLBORO MAN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[ APPLAUSE ]

[ LAUGHTER ]

THAT CAN'T BE GO.

-- THAT CAN'T BE GOOD.

LOCK THE DOORS.

TRAGEDY TODAY AT THE COLBERT

REPORT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WELL, I WAS SO INSPIRED BY THE

WAY HERMAN CAIN'S AD STICKS IT

TO THE EAST AND WEST COAST

ELITES THAT I'VE MADE SOME CAIN

ADS OF MINE OWN -- YES, MINE

OWN --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

[ LAUGHTER ]

I THINK --

[ LAUGHTER ]

-- I THINK THE NICOTINE HAS

PARALYZED MY TONGUE.

I WAS SO IMPRESSED THAT I MADE

ADS OF MY OWN.

POWERFUL STUFF.

BUT FOLKS, THE BEST PART OF

CAIN'S AD MIGHT NOT EVEN BE THE

UNEXPECTED SMOKING.

NO, THE BEST PART IS THE 8

SECONDS IT TAKES FOR HERMAN CAIN

TO SMILE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OH, YEAH.

AND I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY HE'S

SMILING.

I MEAN LISTEN TO THAT SONG HE'S

ROCKING TO.

JIMMY, GIVE US ANOTHER TASTE.

[SINGING "I AM AMERICA"]

HA, I AM AMERICA.

WHERE I HAVE HEARD THAT BEFORE?

ON THE COVER OF MY #1

BEST-SELLING BOOK: " I AM

AMERICA AND SO CAN YOU."

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WELL, HERMIE, I'M FLATTERED,

BECAUSE CLEARLY CAIN IS BASING A

LOT OF HIS CAMPAIGN ON MY BOOK.

IN THAT HIS CAMPAIGN IS MOSTLY

ABOUT SELLING HIS BOOK.

BUT HERMAN, I KNOW IT SAYS "AND

SO CAN YOU" BUT YOU CAN'T JUST

SAY YOU'RE AMERICA AND SO CAN

YOU, TOO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

YOU HAVE TO COME ON MY SHOW.

YOU HAVE CANCELLED ON ME TWICE,

SIR.

I'M OFFERING YOU THE COLBERT

BUMP, BUT YOU'RE GONNA GET THE

COLBERT DUMP, UNLESS YOU COME ON

MY SHOW, ANSWER MY QUESTIONS AND

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU.

FOLKS, IT'S NO SECRET THAT I

FURIOUSLY OPPOSE OCCUPY WALL

STREET.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO AFFECT

ECONOMIC CHANGE, KIDS, DO IT THE

OLD-FASHIONED WAY-- GET OFF YOUR

ASS AND GET A JOB AT GOLDMAN

SACHS AND THEN GET HIRED BY THE

U.S. TREASURY.

IT'S THAT SIM.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

YEAH!

GIVE IT UP FOR GOLDMAN SACHS.

LLOYD IS A FRIEND.

BUT WHAT REALLY BUNDLES MY ANGER

AND SHORT-SELLS MY RAGE IS THE

LATEST SUPPORTERS OF THESE

BOTTOM 99-PERCENTERS.

JIM?

>> THE GROUP HAS ITS FIRST SHOW

OF CORPORATE SUPPORT.

BEN AND JERRY'S IS BACKING THE

PROTESTS.

>> BEN AND JERRY'S IS POSTING A

MESSAGE TO PROTESTERS ON THEIR

WEBSITE SAYING, WE STAND WITH

YOU.

>> WE SUPPORT THIS CALL TO

ACTION AND ARE HONORED TO JOIN

YOU IN THIS CALL TO TAKE BACK

OUR NATION AND DEMOCRACY.

>> Stephen: WHAT?

BEN AND JERRY, HOW COULD YOU

SUPPORT THESE LEFTY PROTESTERS?

WHAT'S NEXT, SUPPORTING GAY

MARRIAGE JUST BECAUSE YOUR

HUBBY'S GOT A CHUBBY FOR A

CHUNKY MONKEY?

[ LAUGHTER ]

THIS ENDORSEMENT IMPLIES THAT I

SUPPORT THIS PROTEST, BECAUSE OF

MY BEN & JERRY'S FLAVOR

AMERI-CONE DREAM.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

NO WAY!

MY FLAVOR IS 100% PRO-BUSINESS.

EATING IT IS THE PERFECT WAY TO

INCREASE YOUR BOTTOM LINE.

AS WELL AS YOUR BELLY LINE AND

THE AREA-FORMERLY-KNOWN-AS-CHIN

LINE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

-1-

HOW DARE YOU LUMP ME IN WITH THE

REST OF YOUR ANTI-CORPORATE

SOCIALIST FLAVORS LIKE WILLIE

NELSON'S COUNTRY PEACH COBBLER.

PHISH FOOD, AND KARAMEL MARX.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOT TO MENTION THE FLAVOR OF MY

FORMER BEST FRIEND FOR SIX

MONTHS AND CURRENT ENEMY, JIMMY

FALLON'S LATE NIGHT SNACK.

[ LAUGHTER ]

SALTY CARAMEL SWIRL,

FUDGE-COVERED POTATO CHIP

CLUSTERS?

IT'S CLEARLY ANTI-BUSINESS SINCE

THE INGREDIENTS READ LIKE WHAT

AN UNEMPLOYED PERSON FINDS WHEN

DUMPSTER DIVING.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THIS IS HORRIBLE, BUT AT LEAST I

KNOW THAT MY ICE CREAM IS STILL

THE #1 BEST SELLING BEN AND

JERRY'S FLAVOR.

>> THE BIG ISSUE EVERYONE IS

TALKING ABOUT: IS IT OUTSELLING

STEPHEN COLBERT'S ICE CREAM?

>> YOU KNOW, THE FLAVOR IS DOING

REALLY, REALLY WELL-- BUT THE

SHORT ANSWER IS YES IT'S

OUTSELLING STEPHEN'S ICE CREAM.

>> YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.

REALLY, IS IT?

THAT IS SO[AUDIENCE BOOS]

>> Stephen: I'M SO DEPRESSED.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I'M FAT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

HOW COULD THIS HAVE HAPPENED?!?

IN HINDSIGHT, MAYBE DEVOTING AN

ENTIRE SHOW TO THE LAUNCH OF

JIMMY'S ICE-CREAM WAS A MISTAKE.

BUT IT STILL DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

MY FLAVOR IS EVERYWHERE.

IT'S ONE OF ONLY THREE FLAVORS

AVAILABLE IN PINTS,

QUARTS, MINICUPS AND SCOOP

SHOPS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOLKS, I SMELL A RAT.

RAT, BY THE WAY, ALSO ONE OF THE

INGREDIENTS IN JIMMY FALLON'S

ICE CREAM.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THERE HAS TO BE AN EXPLANATION

FOR THIS.

JERRY?

>> I DON'T THINK HE'S OUT THERE

FLOGGING HIS FLAVOR THE WAY

YOU'RE FLOGGING YOUR FLAVOR.

IF HE WAS OUT THERE FLOGGING HIS

FLAVOR, HE'D BE PUMPING UP

SALES.

>> Stephen: WHAT?

HEY, I FLOG MY FLAVOR ALL THE

TIME!

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOT AS MUCH AS BACK IN COLLEGE,

BUT BELIEVE ME, I CAN STILL PUMP

MY SALES.

LATCH LAUGH.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NATION, WE MUST REGAIN OUR PLACE

ATOP THE ICE CREAM MOUNTAIN.

I WANT EVERYONE IN THE COLBERT

NATION TO MAKE AMERICONE DREAM

THEIR TREAT OF CHOICE.

BRING IT TO PARTIES, EAT IT ON

YOUR BIRTHDAY, GIVE IT OUT AT

HALLOWEEN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I DON'T EVEN CARE IF YOU EAT IT.

USE IT TO GREASE DOOR HINGES, OR

SPACKLE WALLS.

OR AS A REFRESHING DEODORANT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND YES, ALL MY ICE CREAM'S

PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITY, BUT TO

HELL WITH THE NEEDY.

I AM DOING THIS TO KICK JIMMY

FALON'S ASS.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

BY THE WAY, FALLON'S ASS?

ALSO IN HIS ICE CREAM.

>> STEPHEN: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

MY GUEST TONIGHT IS A FORMER

ATTORNEY AND DIRECTOR OF "HOT

COFFEE," A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT

FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS.

I'M WILLING TO SETTLE THIS

INTERVIEW OUT OF STUDIO FOR FIVE

MILLION DOLLARS.

PLEASE WELCOME SUSAN SALADOFF!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

HAY, MS. SALADOFF NICE TO MEET

YOU.

LET'S GET DOWN TO THE NITTY

GRITTY YOU ARE A FORMER

PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEY?

I AM.

>> WHO MADE A DOCUMENTARY

AVAILABLE ON HBO GO AND DVD

NOVEMBER 1.

IT'S TALKING ABOUT FRIVOLOUS

LAWSUITS.

>> IT'S TALKING ABOUT THE MYTH

OF A FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT.

>> STEPHEN: THERE ARE

FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS GO AHEAD.

>> WHAT INJURE DEFINITION.

IT'S NEVER YOUR CASE THAT IS

FRIVOLOUS.

>> STEPHEN: I'M A REASONABLE

GUY.

HOW ABOUT THE JUDGE WHO SUED FOR

$65 MILLION BECAUSE A DRY

CLEANER LOST HIS PANTS IS THAT

FRIVOLOUS.

>>?

THAT ONE MIGHT BE FRIVOLOUS,

YEAH.

>> STEPHEN: THANK YOU FOR

COMING BY.

SUSAN, EVERYBODY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> THE THING ABOUT THAT HE

DIDN'T FIND A LAWYER.

WAS A LAWYER AND REPRESENTED

HIMSELF.

HE WOULDN'T FIND A LAWYER TO

REPRESENT HIM STOONCHTS WE NEED

TO MAKE LAWYERS ILLEGAL.

>> THE SYSTEM WORKS.

IF YOU FILE A CASE THAT IS NOT

MERITORIOUS.

A JUDGE IS GOING TO THREE IT OUT

OR YOU'LL GET FIND.

THERE ARE 12 PEOPLE SITTING ON A

JURY.

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU

MONEY FOR A FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT

AND EVEN IF HE THEY WERE, THE

JUDGES CAN REDUCE IT.

THERE ARE VERY FEW FRIF LUS

LAWSUITS.

THERE'S A MYTH ABOUT THAT

>> STEPHEN: IT'S A BIG MYTH.

WHAT A TORT?

>> IT'S INTERESTING.

THE CANDIDATES ARE TALKING ABOUT

TORT REFORM WHEN MOST PEOPLE

DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS.

A TORT SAY CIVIL HARM.

WHEN SOMEONE IS HURT AND YOU CAN

BRING A CASE IN THE CIVIL COURT

THAT IS CALLED A TORT WHERE THEY

CAN GET DAMAGESES FOR WHAT

HAPPENED TO THEM.

>> STEPHEN: AND WHAT IS

REFORM?

>> WELL, YEAH.

SO MOST PEOPLE THINK REFORM IS A

GOOD THING.

>> STEPHEN: IT IS A GOOD

THING.

>> UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO YOU UNTIL

YOU REALIZE SOMETHING BAD

HAPPENS TO YOU OR A FAMILY

MEMBER AND YOU DON'T HAVE ACCESS

TO THE COURTS ANYMORE AND YOU

CAN'T HOLD A WRONGDOER

ACCOUNTABLE, THEN YOU REALIZE

IT'S GOOD FOR CORPORATIONS AND

THOSE WHO MAKE PRODUCTS THAT

HARM US BUT NOT GOOD FOR AVERAGE

CITIZENS.

>> STEPHEN: LET'S TALK ABOUT

THE FAMOUS CASE THAT GIVES YOU

THE TITLE OF DOCUMENTARY HERE.

HOT COFFEE.

THE OLD LADY WHO ORDERED A HOT

COFFEE FROM McDONALDS, RIGHT?

THEN SHE GOES OUT TO HER CAR AND

DECIDES TO DO DOUGHNUTS ON THE

GRASS?

AND POURS THE COFFEE ON THE LAP

AND SIEWZ.

>> THAT CASE HAS BEEN CITED AS

SORT OF POSTER CHILD FOR WHAT IS

WRONG WITH THE CIVIL JUSTICE

SYSTEM.

MOST PEOPLE HAVE THE FACTS

COMPLETELY WRONG.

WHEN THEY SEE THE FILM HOT

COFFEE THEY REALIZE THEY'VE BEEN

MANIPULATED BY THE MEDIA AND

CORPORATE AMERICA TO BELIEVE

THAT THE SYSTEM IS BRECKEN.

>> STEPHEN: WHY ISN'T THAT A

CRAZY SUIT.

COFFEE IS HOT.

>> WHEN YOU SPILL COFFEE ON

YOURSELF WE DON'T EXPECT NEED

SURGERY AND GRAFTING BECAUSE THE

COFFEE WAS SO HOT AND

McDONALDS KNEW NO ONE COULD

DRINK IT AT THAT TEMPERATURE IT

WOULD CAUSE THIRD DEGREE BURNS.

MRS. LEEBECK, BY THE WAY, 79

YEARS OLD, NEVER BROUGHT A

LAWSUIT A DAY IN HER LIFE.

ALL SHE WANTED WAS THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHEN HER

MEDICAL BILLS WERE AND WHAT

MEDICARE PAID.

McDONALDS OFFERED $800 AND

NEVER ANOTHER PENNY.

SHE WENT TOLL TRIAL.

THE VERDICT, IT WAS TWO DAYS OF

COFFEE SALES OF McDONALDS AND

THEN THE JUDGE REDUCED IT AND

THEY WOUND UP SETTLING FOR A

SMALLER AMOUNT BUT NOBODY KNOWS

THAT BECAUSE SHE WAS SUBJECT TO

A GAG ORDER BUT McDONALDS

WASN'T.

>> STEPHEN: WHY COULD THEY

TALK ABOUT IT?

>> WHEN YOU SET THE CASES?

THE PERSON WHO IS INJURED AND

RECEIVED MONEY THEY ARE SILENT

BUT THE CORPORATIONS THEY ARE

NOT.

THEY PUT OUT THIS MESSAGE OVER

AND OVER AGAIN ABOUT HOW THEY

ARE THEREARE CRAZY LAWSUITS

BECAUSE THEY WANT PEOPLE TO

THINK THAT THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN

BECAUSE IF PEOPLE THINK THE

SYSTEM IS BROKEN, THEN THEY ARE

WILLING TO REFORM IT OR CHANGE

IT WHICH ONLY GIVES CORPORATIONS

MORE MONEY.

>> STEPHEN: CORPORATIONS NEED

THE MONEY BECAUSE THEY ARE JOB

CREATORS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> YEAH.

>> STEPHEN: THANK YOU.

HOW CAN CORPORATIONS BE PUT ON

TRIAL BECAUSE ISN'T A TRIAL

SUPPOSED TO HAVE A JURY OF YOUR

SPEARS?

>> YEAH.

>> STEPHEN: THEN A CORPORATION

WOULD NEED 12 OTHER DORP RACES

JUDGING THEM.

McDONALDS HAS TO BE JUDGED BY

JACK IN THE BOX AND BURGER AND

PIZZA HUT.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT IS INTERESTING

ABOUT THE JURY OUR PEERS?

THE 7th AMENDMENT TO THE

CONSTITUTION IS TRIAL BY JURY.

NOBODY EVERY REMEMBERS THE 7th

AMENDMENT THEY REMEMBER THE 2ND

AMENDMENT BUT IT'S A

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO HAVE

TRIAL BY JURY.

THAT RIGHT IS TAKEN AWAY FROM US

BY TAX ON DAMAGES, BY THESE

ARBITRATION CLAUSES, BY ALL OF

THIS SO-CALL TORT REFORM WHICH

IS -- SHOULD BE CALLED TORT

DEFORM.

IT'S NOT GOOD FOR ANYBODY.

IT TAKES AWAY CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHTS.

WHAT WE NEED IS TO TAKE BACK OUR

RIGHTS AND HAVE ACCESS TO THE

COURTS SO THAT WE CAN HOLD

WRONGDOUGHERS ACCOUNTABLE.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

-- WRONG DOERS ACCOUNTABLE.

>> STEPHEN: THANK FOR

>> STEPHEN: THAT'S IT FOR THE

REPORT, EVERYBODY.

GOOD NIGHT.
