The Simpsons on demise of print media

By Steve Outing

I missed last night’s The Simpsons, but according to Mediabistro’s FishbowlDC blog, there was this funny scene:

“Did you watch last night’s ‘The Simpsons’? Like when Dan Rather introduced his panel of debate moderators, including ‘Ron Lehar, a print journalist from The Washington Post.’

“Prompting Nelson to point at him and say ‘Ha ha: Your medium is dying!’

“Rather: ‘Nelson!’ (Actually, it was Principal Skinner who says this.)

“Nelson: ‘But it is! There’s being right and there’s being nice.'”

A joke for we media geeks. :)

Addendum: Here’s the clip, found on
