Author's Summary: Obnoxious right-wing pundit Stephen Colbert catches a lift with Four'n'Sarah Jane . . . and, in his younger days, Ten'n'Jack.

And can the rest of space and time handle the truthiness?
Characters/Pairings: Four, Ten, Jack Harkness, Sarah Jane Smith, Stephen Colbert/Jon Stewart
Warning: Real Person Slash.
Recced because: First off, this isn't just a fic series. It's a multimedia extravaganza! SailorPtah manages to tell this non-linear story in a well done mix of written words, drawings, sounds and television clips.
Now about the story. These stories show the potential young Stephen Colbert has and traces the path he takes to become that scathing fake-news reporter we all love to watch. It something of a love story, something of an action story, and very nonlinear. It's also a RPS. Sort of. In that gray-area way that the 'fake-news' fandom is good at. Fake-news being a term for 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' and 'The Colbert Report'. They don't technically report the news. Technically they make fun of it. And technically they are playing characters on their respective shows. Which is where the gray area comes in, since this is about those characters. Maybe. Probably. Digress.
Best Parts: The Wørd and it's snarkage. I'm Your Moon. Any 10 and Stephen interaction. OH, wait till you find out who Tek Jensen is based on!
