Interview with Breslin

Poynter has an interview with Breslin who is in Boston covering the DNC, about the DNC and other topics.

Most surprising?

He sounds depressed -- but not surprised -- that newspaper readership continues to drop. He said today's newspapers -- even tabloids -- lack sufficient anger and humor to engage and hang onto readers.

He's not just talking about young readers, noting that his own favorite source of news these days is "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

Jon Stewart? Hope somebody gives Stewart a heads-up.
