My only explanation for why the NY Times participated in this Daily Show report is that they know it's all over, and they just want to maximize page views while they can. Guess what geniuses, when someone mocks you for printing yesterday's news, you admit it proudly and emphasize that you provide accuracy, analysis, filtering, and convenience.

Don't miss the corresponding NY Times interview of Jason Jones. Via every blog out there, because it really is that funny.

And a few more links:

1. The guy from Munch's The Scream vogues in this animated gif. Via.

2. Too good to verify, supposedly a woman who missed being on the fatal Air France flight 447 has died in a car accident. Via Fark, where the first comment is worth a look.

3. Disgraced NBA ref Tim Donaghy was attacked by a prisoner claiming mob ties and suffered leg injuries.

4. If you're in the mood to get outraged about waste of tax dollars, read this report on Albert Senella and Scott Taylor of the Tarzana Treatment Center.
