The Colbert Nation was powerful enough to name part of a NASA space station after its leader, Stephen Colbert – but is it powerful enough to earn him a big payday?
On Monday night, Stephen Colbert featured a news story from Associated Content by L. Vincent Poupard on “The Colbert Report."
This is Associated Content’s official invitation to Mr. Colbert and his followers to submit original articles or videos – on the topics of their choosing – for publication on Associated Content. AC will treat Mr. Colbert just like anyone else. His submission will be will be reviewed by an editor, given an upfront payment offer, and, upon accepting the offer, Colbert’s contribution will be published on AssociatedContent.com and earn him $1.50 for every 1,000 page views his content generates. And that goes for each of his followers too.
Imagine what Colbert and his multitude of followers could achieve, given the chance to earn endless revenue by submitting content on topics of their choice.
They might consider starting by tackling the unfortunate glut of Colbert-centric content in the massive Associated Content library. There are 565 articles about Colbert’s main competition, Bill “Papa Bear” O’Reilly, and 431 about his comedic counterpoint Jon Stewart. By contrast, there is a sad 228 pieces about Colbert.
We’ll give the Colbert Nation two weeks to produce as much content as they can, to see if their output can hold a candle to an established Source like L. Vincent Poupard.
