By day, Bill Menezes is the editorial director of Colorado Media Matters, a website devoted to highlighting and undermining what the folks there perceive to be conservative misinformation that's being foisted on an unsuspecting populace. But tonight at 6 p.m. on Channel 7, he'll be showing another side of himself: fact nerd. Yep, he's one of three contestants on the next episode of Jeopardy!, among television's longest running (and smartest) quiz shows. Click here to see a promo featuring Menezes jawing with host Alex Trebek, as well as a second clip in which he makes the sort of dumb Colorado reference TV types love: He urges locals to watch him "before you hit the slopes," as if there are a lot of people in these parts who begin driving to ski areas during the dinner hour.
