"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night introduced a new segment called "For the Record" to combat the spread of misinformation.

"There's no app called Gay Twitter," Meyers said in response to a since-changed headline from the New York Times that read, "Hillary Clinton Lauds Reagans on AIDS. Gay Twitter Erupts." "There's Twitter, and sometimes gay people use it, but aren't we past the point of putting 'gay' in front of everything gay people do?"

"We don't have to call them gay weddings anymore," Meyers said. "They're just weddings."

Meyers closed out the segment with a rapid-fire fact-check of the GOP candidates, noting that, "For the record, despite all of the supporting photographic evidence, Ted Cruz is not Count Chocula."

Cruz "still might be the Zodiac Killer, though," he added.

Watch the full segment below:
