    I think the meeting is actually streaming right now (it just started). I think the meeting might be at 10, and Stephen addressing those outside of the FEC building after the meeting at 11am.

      The first 15 minutes or so was mostly in anticipation for the meeting. The board approved the minutes from the last meeting, things like that. I just heard Stephen mention something about not knowing what their ads would look like for the PAC, as they do not have the PAC yet. Right now, someone on the board is talking about whether or not public ads could be viewed as extended commentary. From what I gather, Stephen is answering questions out of character, which is what I assumed he would do.

        Trevor Potter just made a great point in response to the board member by stating that his client is Stephen Colbert and the Colbert SuperPAC, not the Viacom Corporation, and that there is a distinction between the responsibility of Viacom, and the responsibility of the SuperPAC.

        Two of the board members just spoke out in support of the PAC, and one of them thanked Stephen for coming to the meeting and taking the request of the PAC seriously. She said something to the effect that the board would not have taken the request as seriously had it appeared at all that Stephen was treating it merely as political humor or a bit.

        I hope this is helping 🙂

        You’re being very helpful, indeed! Thanks a lot, lockhart43! 🙂 I finally managed to get through (Internet’s a little spotty for me right now), and it sounds promising from what I’m hearing, but they still get the final decision come next Tuesday (seeing the Upcoming Events list).

    Me. Too. And now I’m even more excited for tonight’s episode so that I can see the look of glee on Stephen’s face as he says, “I have a SuperPAC.” Ohhh this is going to be fun.
