    Sure, the print media business is in sad shape, but Colbert is a flippant douche bag.

    Schratboy: I prefer to think of Colbert as the greatest satirist of the day. Your opinion may vary. Sturm’s no dummy; he knew what he was in for when he accepted the invite. But I’m not sure what benefit Sturm thought NAA would get from appearing.

    Absolutely Hilarious…Mr. Sturm couldn’t even complete the knock knock joke. Having been laid off recently from the Newspaper Industry, I agree wholeheartedly that the Newspaper Industry is in BIG DOO DOO!!! And, in addition to the economy affecting advertising, the newspaper’s disregard for the information superhighway, paved the way for a slow (and I might add, painful) death.

    Sturm on Colbert was a fat metaphor for the newspaper industry. The “not getting it” continues. News-papers, Detroit models, Wall St hubris and Network news replicons get the Darwinian boot. Next up, Realtors and healthcare carpetbaggers.
