Daily Show on the New York Times

This clip is broad like the steppe, offers no solutions and runs right at the most obvious jokes.

That said, you can still see that the NYT is in trouble here, but will continue forward ostensibly as is.

Why do people in a bind and possessing no sense of humor consent to be interviewed by Daily Show correspondents?

I picked up this link from a blog entry on the UK Guardian website, a paper that has seemingly better managed the transition to the internet: http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/greenslade/2009/jun/12/new-york-times-jon-stewart.  Better in that the Guardian treats its online and print editions as two separate entities.  The guardian website has the same reporting as the paper, the same analysis, the same editorial stance. Transitory news and information earns more prominence on the Guardian website.  The appearance of the medium kind of demands that.   But the analysis is there, and you’ll find it reading online.

The NYT hasn’t apparently adapted its editorial style to the new medium: it always leads with the analysis in political stories, a personal anecdote in news stories.  If you want to know what’s going on in a NYT article. Skip to the 10th paragraph.  Harder to do on the web.
