Sanders to appear on Colbert Report

Bernie Sanders says he’s not known for his sense of humor, but promises to try not to make too big a fool of himself when he appears on the "Colbert Report” tonight.

Sanders says he’ll talk about two of his major issues — the decline of the middle class and the lack of a national health-care system — when he appears on the show, which runs on the Comedy Central cable network at 11:30 p.m.

Sanders says a lot of people, especially young people, are shying away from network news in favor of shows like the Colbert Report and the Daily Show with John Stewart because they’ve grown disenchanted with what Sanders calls the corporate media.

Comedy Central is owned by Viacom, which also owns MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures and several other media properties.
