Are print newspapers dying?

Great video from The Daily Show. Thanks to Banzai for sharing.

I still read print newspapers every once in a while, but I mostly get my news online. In the past 6 months, I think I bought three newspapers and I picked up a free "newspapers" for the crossword puzzle.

I felt bad for the folks at the Times a few times during the interview, but it was still hilarious, and fairly accurate as well. Although the Times employee did have a point that the online news 'zines don't have the money/clout to get direct access to some things and so they just riff off big sources like the NYT, CNN and others. But even that's changing.
