The plot thickens when Stephen interviews a supposed eyewitness to the events leading to the tragic CBS Benghazi apology. (6:49)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)NOW CBS KNEW DAVIES HAD LIED TO

HIS EMPLOYER BUT BELIEVED THEHEROIC VERSION HE TOLD THEM

BECAUSE THEIR SOURCES LED THEMTO BELIEVE THAT DAVIES' F.B.I.

REPORT WAS IN SYNC WITH WHAT HETOLD "60 MINUTES."

OR HE MIGHT HAVE TOLD THE F.B.I.

THAT HE WAS THE LEAD SINGER OF'N SYNC.

IT'S NOT CLEAR.

(LAUGHTER)BECAUSE LATER THE "NEW YORK

TIMES" CHECKED WITH THE F.B.I.

AND DAVIES' F.B.I. TESTIMONY ISNOT WHAT HE TOLD "60 MINUTES."

SO CBS NEWS QUICKLY CHECKED ITSOWN F.B.I. SOURCES AND LEARNED

WHAT MR. DAVIES TOLD THE F.B.I.

DIFFERD FROM WHAT HE TOLD US.

SO CBS FACT CHECKED THE STORYBUT WHEN IT TURNED OUT TO BE

WRONG THEY FACT CHECKED IT FORREALS, Y'ALL!

(LAUGHTER)AND ON LAST NIGHT THE "60

MINUTES," LARA LOGAN ADDRESSEDTHE CONTROVERSY HEAD ON AT THE

VERY TOP OF THE LAST MINUTE OFTHE SHOW.

(LAUGHTER)>> WE END OUR BROADCAST TONIGHT

WITH A CORRECTION ON A STORY WEREPORTED OCTOBER 27.

WE REALIZED WE HAD BEEN MISLEDAND IT WAS A MISTAKE TO INCLUDE

HIM IN OUR REPORT.

FOR THAT, WE ARE VERY SORRY.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TOEVERY PERSON AT "60 MINUTES" IS

THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH IS WEMADE A MISTAKE.

>> Stephen: FOLKS, I'M NOTBUYING THIS.

CBS IS GOOD AT JOURNALISM.

THERE'S ONLY ONE LOGICALEXPLANATION FOR WHAT REALLY

HAPPENED HERE.

HILLARY CLINTON GOT TO THEM!

(LAUGHTER)YOU SEE, FOLKS, AS YOU WELL KNOW

BUT I WILL REPEAT AS OFTEN ASPOSSIBLE, HILLARY CLINTON WAS

SECRETARY OF STATE DURING THEBENGHAZI ATTACKS!

I MEAN, THAT'S HER OFFICIALPHOTO.

(LAUGHTER)ERGO, QUID PRO QUO, AM BUS

BRIEF, SHE IS TO BLAME.

AND NOW N.O.W. SHE'S SO HUNGRYFOR POWER IN 2016 THAT SHE'S

SOMEHOW CONVINCED "60 MINUTES"TO AIR THIS FALSE BENGHAZI

APOLOGY TO DISCREDIT THEIRINVESTIGATION!

AND WE HERE AT THE "THE COLBERTREPORT" HAVE NOW FOUND AN

EYEWITNESS WITH STARTLING NEWDETAILS CONCERNING THE NIGHT OF

THE TRAGIC CBS/BENGHAZI APOLOGY.

I UNDERSTAND YOU WERE A COLLEGEINTERN AT "60 MINUTES."

SAFETY, ARE YOU USING AN ALIASTONIGHT?

HELL BROKE LOOSE AT "60MINUTES."

BECAUSE I'M AN ACTUAL HUMANWITNESS.

>> Stephen: TELL US WHATHAPPENED, PANCHO.

>> WELL, I WAS COMING BACK FROMGETTING CHEWING TOBACCO FOR FOR

LESLEY STAHL WHEN I HEARDEXPLOSIONS OF SHOUTING.

>> Stephen: WHAT DID YOU DONEXT?

>> I RAN TOWARDS IT.

I SCALED THE 30-FOOT WALLSURROUNDING THE NEWSROOM.

(LAUGHTER)ONCE I LANDED, A SHADOWY FIGURE

RAN TOWARDS ME SO I KNOCKED HIMOUT WITH THE BUTT OF MY HARPOON

GUN.

(LAUGHTER).

(LAUGHTER)SHE WAS SWINGING A BIKE CHAIN

AND YELLING "WE'RE HERE TO KILLTHE STORY!

WHO WANTS TO EAT SOME CHAIN?"(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)THEN SHE PISTOL WHIPPED MORLEY

SAFER.

(LAUGHTER)WHICH WAS CRUEL SINCE HE WAS

ALREADY UNCONSCIOUS.

>> Stephen: SO IT WAS HILLARYCLINTON WHO MADE CBS APOLOGIZE?

>> YES!

>> Stephen: I KNEW IT!

ANYTHING ELSE?

>> YEAH, STEPHEN, I HAVE ONEMORE EXCLUSIVE.

I'M NOT REALLY "60 MINUTES"INTERN PONCHO DENEWS.

IN THE HBO DOCUMENTARY "THENEWS."

(LAUGHTER)(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WHAT?

WHERE DID THAT COLLEGE INTERNGO?

>> THERE WAS NEVER ANY INTERN,STEPHEN!

I DID IT TO PROVE A POINT THATAS JOURNALISTS WE ARE THE

GATEKEEPERS OF TRUTH!

WE SEPARATE RIGHT FROM WRONG;FACT FROM FICTION, DELICATE FROM

PERMANENT PRESS!

I RECALL A MAN WHO SAID WITHGREAT POWER COMES GREAT

RESPONSIBILITY.

THAT MAN WAS SPIDER-MAN'S UNCLE.

(LAUGHTER)AND NOW HE'S DEAD!

THE PUBLIC NEEDS US TO BE THEWATCHDOGS OF DEMOCRACY.

WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TOCRITICIZE OUR LEADERS WITHOUT A

PROEFP, REPORT NATIONAL SECRETSWITHOUT FEAR OF IMPRISONMENT.

IF WE VIOLATE THIS CONTACT, THISPUBLIC TRUST --

>> ALMOST DONE.

THEN WE WILL HAVE A PUPPET PRESSOFS HERE, INNUENDO, HYPERBOLE

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY IT'S THETHROAT!

DELIVERED HOT AND CRUSTY OR YOURMONEY BACK!

THAT'S THE GUARANTEE WE MAKEAMERICA EVERY NIGHT OTHERWISE

THE WORLD IS JUST CRAZY BREAD.

(LAUGHTER)>> Stephen: TECHNICALLY, CRAZY

BRETT IS LITTLE CESARS.

>> IT'S CALLED POETIC LICENSE,GODDAMNIT!

>> Stephen: YOU'RE RIGHT, THENEWSROOM'S CHARLIE SKINNER.

NOW, IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME,THERE'S SOMETHING I HAVE TO DO.

WE END OUR THIS PART OF THE SHOWWITH A CORRECTION.

IN OUR REPORT TONIGHT, A MANNAMED PONCHO DENEWS CLAIMED HE

WAS A "60 MINUTES" INTERN AND WEBELIEVED HIM BECAUSE HE HAD AN

I.D. LANYARD.

(LAUGHTER)FOLLOWING THE REPORT, THE

"WASHINGTON POST", THE "NEW YORKTIMES," AND THE "TV GUIDE" ALL

REPORTED THAT HE WAS ACTUALLYTHE ACTOR SAM WATERSTON STAR OF

-- "THE PLASTIC DOME OF NORMAJEAN."

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)LOOK IT UP.

MISTAKE.

WE SHOULD NOT HAVE USED HIM INOUR REPORT AND FOR THAT WE'RE

VERY SORRY.
