Colbert on Newspapers

Stephen Colbert weighed in on future of journalism right now, taking a side in the debate over the role of print: “Newspapers are an important part of our lives, not to read, of course, but, when you’re moving you can’t wrap your dishes in a blog.”

Colbert also hypothesized about possible headlines for John Yoo’s upcoming columns at the Philadelphia Inquirer. These include:

“Technically It Was the Condom that Was Cheating.”

“Taking Candy From a Baby: It’s Not Like the Baby Paid for It.”

“Oh, So Now It’s My Fault Kittens in a Sack Can’t Swim.”
