"We would like to return to work with our writers. If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence."
Steven Colbert and John Stuart announced
that their shows would be returning to production without their striking writers. What pained me was CNN reporting that statement as if it was just another press release, not as the punchline it was. Then again, I suppose that's why the reporters are at CNN, not Comedy Central.
