Comedy Central Site To Spoof ’08 Elections

    June 21, 2007

Comedy Central has launched their first stand-alone political humor Web site. 

Users will be able to watch and discuss video clips related to the 2008 election from "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," "The Colbert Report," and "Lil Bush." The site will also feature a blog written by "The InDecider."

On the sites homepage it says," We, the editors of Indecision ’08, will provide the people of this country — and possibly other countries, if they do in fact exist — with a website that will tell something approximating the electoral news with something approximating honesty."

Other features of this site include widgets that give campaign related facts such as the number of Google hits for a candidate’s name along with interactive polls. Users will also be able to download IM icons and wallpaper.

The site also plans to feature additional widgets, a forum to discuss politics, online fantasy gaming and user-generated video content.

"The presidential election has long been a source of comedic inspiration for our shows and our network," said Erik Flannigan, executive vice president, digital media, Comedy Central.

"With, Comedy Central is augmenting the best of our on-air coverage with programming exclusively created for the Web audience which is cordially invited to participate and join in the fun."
