Catch the wave. PS: This wi...

We weren't sure if it was a hack or a winking acknowledgement of Colbert's solidarity with the hacker collective. Last night Colbert confirmed that the strange, almost subliminal message was not an inside job, and explained a bit about Anonymous's recent threats toward the Koch Brothers, the billiona...
