The Daily Show asks The New York Times why anyone would want to acquire news through such a ridiculously outdated medium.

Of course, The Daily Show is probably an exotic animal to the members of the NYT management who probably still think email is cutting edge.
In related news, The New York Times Company is accepting bids for the Boston Globe in an effort to unload that failing newspaper.
