Ouch! The Daily Show Decimates The New York Times

"Aged news." "Colonial Williamsburg." "My grandma would love this."

"The Daily Show" correspondent Jason Jones visited the New York Times offices on Wednesday night's show for a hysterical segment titled "End Times."

Jones got access to Executive Editor Bill Keller as well as Times Assistant Managing Editor Rick Berke and Communications Coordinator Kristin Mason.

At one point, walking through the office with Mason, he picks up a landline phone and asks, "What's this?"

When told that it's a phone, he jokes, "A landline phone? I'm a reporter from the '80s, making sure everything's factual. You guys are like a walking colonial Williamsburg!"

Later, walking past a stack of newspapers, Jones picks one up and says, "You know who would love this? My grandma."

"Even today there are some who still think there's merit in publishing the news 24 hours after it's happened," he said.
