Comedian news commentator Stephen Colbert visits Vicco, Kentucky, to explore the small town’s fairness ordinance, which bars the city from discriminating against residents on the basis of sexual orientation. The seven minute report features Vicco residents and Johnny Cummings, the openly gay mayor of the town of a few hundred in the Eastern Kentucky coalfields. The “report” is full of rural stereotypes. In this case, the intent is to use these caricatures to contrast the reality of the small town that got national headlines for its fairness ordinance. See if you think the satire succeeded.
