Comedian Louis C.K. soundly defeated mainstream media members Wednesday night during a "Power Players" edition of Jeopardy.

The popular stand-up comic and star of Louie on FX won $50,000 for Fistula Foundation, which helps women in poor countries get medical attention for injuries sustained during childbirth.

Liberal Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jonathan Capehart finished runner-up, and Kate Bolduan of left-leaning CNN came in third place. C.K. won in a "runaway," meaning he couldn't be caught in Final Jeopardy by having more than twice the amount of his fellow contestants.

The Final Jeopardy answer was, "With the passing of Antonin Scalia, this Reagan appointee became the longest-tenured justice on the court." Bolduan wrongly guessed David Souter, while Capehart and C.K correctly answered Anthony Kennedy.
