It isn't very often that the news media is able to catch a politician in a flat-out lie -- but that's what Stephen Colbert says happened when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told a 4-year-old constituent that his favorite show when he was 4 was "Scooby Doo."

Politifact reported that Christie was in fact 7 years old when "Scooby Doo" first debuted.

"Christie was clearly lying when he talked about watching 'Scooby-Doo' when he was 4. And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids!" Colbert said, shaking his fist as the Politifact logo appeared on the screen.
