Colbert Report - The Death of Newspapers

On his Better Know a Lobby segment last night, Stephen Colbert interviews John Sturm, head of the Newspaper Association of America. Colbert starts out:
Nation, the newspaper industry is hurting. I should explain that term to my younger viewers: A newspaper is like a blog that leaves ink on you hands and covers topics other than how much you love Fall Out Boy.

And it gets better and better. I guess my enjoyment of this segment should be tempered by my being a newspaper editor. Oh well, enjoy.
