I disagree with your use of the world shill. I think shilling specifically implies making money for a product with no real benefit. Wait...is the corresponds dinner a money making endeavor with n real benefit? He and everyone else in this is shilling for his show.
You're right, not the right word.
And it is kind of funny, but what bothers me is how the media, and journalism in particular have gotten so damned close to the political machine. When Colbert did it, he tore the establishment a new one, speaking truth to power. This is just sucking at Washington's rancid cock and asking for seconds. Political whoring isn't the right word either. This is political slutting.
maybe it is the right word..
An accomplice of a hawker, gambler, or swindler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others.
I like political slutting. That's good. Getting all good and slutted up for the establishment. Gives me half a chub just thinking about it.
Although, given that definition...then yeah. shilling would be dead spot on.
Maybe you should watch something with a laugh track, dudebro.
The British version was so much better.
