In a sarcastic report on old-fashioned journalism, Stephen Colbert made an un-telegraphed joke at the expense of "The New York Times." What seemed like a gag about small-town news and characters, ends up being a joke about the journalistic practices of the venerable "Grey Lady." When a story about one guy thinking it's "too hot to fish" becomes national news, Colbert just had to get to the bottom of it. Watch all the way to the end... it's worth it.
