The Daily Show dubs the Rocky Mountain News a "small newspaper"
In case you missed it, The Daily Show took on the print-journalism crisis the other night, with host Jon Stewart kicking off this particular "Depressing News Riddle" segment with the question, "What's black and white and completely over?" Yep, the answer was "newspapers," and the Rocky Mountain News was referenced, albeit in slightly condescending fashion. After one talking head asks how "smaller newspapers" are doing, the piece cuts to CNN curmudgeon Lou Dobbs announcing that the Rocky's on the block. I'm sure Rocky staffers will be glad to know they work for such a modest enterprise.
