Viral Video: Gimme That Old-Timey Journalism
Here is a very funny piece from cable television comedy show, “The Colbert Report,” about a reporter from Georgia.
It’s hard to explain why it’s so funny, but it is a perfect send-up of the reporting process. The story: “Man Says It’s Too Hot to Fish.”
As Colbert intones: “Newspapers are part of America’s past, like buggy-whip makers and the middle class, but they still perform an important function.”
