Al Jazeera America anchor John Seigenthaler visited "The Colbert Report" Tuesday night, and though he surely knew what to expect from a Stephen Colbert interview, this one was particularly brutal - and brutally funny. Seigenthaler, who spent close to a decade as an anchor for NBC News and MSNBC, joined the newly launched Al Jazeera America earlier this year as the channel's evening news anchor. But Colbert only wanted to ask about the dirt. "Who got to you and how?" Colbert asked right away.

In so many ways, she stands apart. Three years older, almost to the day, than the brother who perished last weekend when his plane crashed into the sea off Martha's Vineyard, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is--by careful design and assiduous practice--the least-known member of her immediate family.
