Announcing the Winner of The Great American Fake-Off . . .


All last week, RollingStone.com pitted America's Anchors Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart against each other in a bloody, five-day, winner-take-all death match. Day One, we considered the North Korean powder-keg. Stewart won. The next day, our pseudojournalism smackdown moved on to something called...the Internet. Colbert won. Day Three's topic du jour was Iraq — and with that, Stewart took the lead. Facing an early defeat, Colbert rose to the occasion, taking the cake as our gaze turned to the Gays.

Then it was Day Five. We gave you the entire weekend to consider America's Anchors, with a pairing of videos tackling the midterm elections. Without further ado — and before we reveal the stunning prize and possible cash award — the winner is:

Congratulations, Mr. Colbert. Stay tuned for more and if you haven't already, check out Maureen Dowd's cover story on America's anchors, on stands until November 17th.
