Jon Stewart on the role of the Web in magazine journalism

There’s an hilarious report of Jon Stewart tearing up a panel of editors at a Magazine Publishers of America event on MediaBistro this week. It’s way too long, but worth reading nonetheless, and includes an brilliant ad libbed analysis of the role of websites in magazine journalism:

Actually, though, Jon turns to Jim [Kelly, the managing editor of Time magazine] and addresses an ‘issue’: “With the speed of news today, how does Time stay relevant?” Jim reminds Jon that Time has a website. Jon shakes his head. “I’m not asking you how you get people to subscribe,” he says.

I had to Google Kelly to get his title, because if there’s a masthead on Time’s website, I couldn’t find it.
