Colbert Versus The NAA

Following on from Jon Stewart’s anti-Twitter tirade, I thought I’d give way to the Easter break with another irreverent take on the state of the news media from across the pond.

Asking the all-important questions about the future of news is satirist and Daily Show alumnus Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report.

The man tasked with answering them is the president of the Newspaper Association of America, John Sturm.

Sturm told E&P that he took the decision to go on the Comedy Central show in the hope that it would “make newspapers visible to the younger audience”.

See how he fared below.
