Stephen Colbert thinks Reddit has become too overwhelmed with Imgur memes.
In an interview with Slate’s David Plotz, Colbert talks about his morning routine. As soon as he wakes up, he starts scouring the internet for the day’s biggest news. He says he checks Google News, Slate, The New York Times, Drudge, Reddit, and others, but as of late he hasn’t been as impressed with the so-called “front page of the internet.”
“Reddit is not as useful as it used to be,” Colbert says. “I used to feel like it was more stories and less memes — photographic memes. Now it’s been sort of consumed by Imgur photographic memes.”
Despite being a bit fed up with the ubiquitous meme-ified pics, Colbert says he does still cruise Reddit, in particular the news and politics subreddits.
