About

“The vast majority of bloggers out there are responsible correspondents doing fine work in niche reporting fields like Gilmore Girl fan fiction, or cute things their cats do, or photoshopped images of the Gilmore Girls as cats. That’s great. Where I draw the line is with these attack-bloggers. Just someone with a computer who gathers, collates and publishes accurate information that is then read by the general public. They have no credibility. All they have is facts. Spare me.”
Stephen Colbert

IN A NUTSHELL – WE’RE STEPHEN FANS
or Why We Do This – by DB Ferguson

MISSION STATEMENTS ROCK!

The purpose of this fan site is to aggregate topical news articles and buzz from the blogosphere into a comprehensive Colbert-centric news source. We also feature exclusive interviews, daily Episode Guides, and breaking news updates with live coverage of events.

WHY NO FACT ZONE FOR THE SITE NAME?

The term “No Fact Zone” comes from a sketch that was originally done during Colbert’s stint on ‘The Daily Show’. TDS ran multiple parody commercials for the then-non existent show for Stephen, called ‘The Colbert Report’. One of the lines in one of these promos has Stephen parodying Bill O-Reilly’s No Spin Zone with the line, “Come take a spin in the No-Fact Zone!” It seemed appropriate, and when I found the quote at the header of this page, I realized I had found a fantastic site name.

BUILDING THE BEST STEPHEN COLBERT FAN SITE ON THE WEB

EXCLUSIVE BREAKING NEWS

We’ve had the fortune to garner exclusive interviews with people such as Ben Karlin (co-creator and former Executive Producer, ‘The Colbert Report’), Mark Malkoff (audience coordinator, ‘The Colbert Report’), and guests who have appeared on ‘The Colbert Report.’ No Fact Zone has also featured exclusive interviews from ‘Daily Show’ notables John Oliver (‘Daily Show’ Correspondent) and David Javerbaum (former ‘Daily Show’ Executive Producer).

[Note from DB: For our final news story here, we featured an exclusive interview with late night television host Stephen Colbert.]

We’ve also gained a loyal readership of a crew we call the “Zoners” who have tipped us off to some amazing scoops, the biggest two so far being our breaking of the Ben & Jerry’s Stephen Colbert’s AmeriCone Dream story and the Richard Branson water fight.

The WØRD: AUTHORITY – KEY MILESTONES FOR NO FACT ZONE

  • ‘Colbert Report’ writers Rob Dubbin, Meredith Scardino and Peter Gwinn discuss the influence of No Fact Zone on the show during this panel interview. According to Dubbin, the staff at the ‘Colbert Report’ was so impressed with the work on the No Fact Zone site that the show completely redesigned their original web site. Dubbin says that “[The staff at No Fact Zone] were on top of everything. We couldn’t be better than they were at following our own show.” Gwinn follows up this comment by saying, “I’ve learned about future guests [from No Fact Zone]… no one’s told me, and I work in the building!”

Bonus Video … Recognition?
Let’s all play a game of “Fox News FAIL” (December 3, 2010)

  • First, let me say yay for Fox News 4 in Kansas City, Kansas spotlighting the great charity that is Donors Choose, and highlighting how the Colbert Nation has made a difference in those kid’s lives. The report on the result of Kansas City music teacher Beth Wheeler’s Donors Choose campaign was really great to see, and the sparkle in those kids eyes as they talked about getting to play the instruments that were furnished by Donors Choose donations was very touching. However …. there’s one small error in this video report. Can you spot it?
