YouTube, you lose...

Well I see my suggestion about making a DVD of Stephen Colbert's appearance at the White House Correspondent's dinner was taken to heart. Unfortunately, it won't be Colbert who makes the dough on this one. CSPAN is selling the video itself for $24.95 a pop. On a darker note, CSPAN successfully prevented YouTube from hosting clips of the performance only to turn around and grant rights to Google to host it instead on their video upload site.

You can tell all of those at the DetNews blog who bow to the altar of the Free Market this news.

After all, if the market is willing to pay $25 bucks for a political speech, there must be a whole lot of people excited about sharing some "truthiness" with the president.

Indeed,yerhonor. I'd say the existence of the DVD is the final word on whether Colbert bombed or not.
