Winter of our dissed content

Fans of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" will want to check out the below You Tube clip from the frontlines in the war against corporate greed. Online and DVD revenue needs to be shared! And promises of softer pencil grips and cushier mouse pads aren't cutting it in contract talks anymore!

(Hey, come to think of it, where are my residuals for these last few "online" blog posts? Hmmm ...)

I kid the writers. In fact, I feel their pain as an underappreciated scribe who continually makes snarky jokes at the expense of those who have more money than me (Mr. Belushi, I apologize for that "According to Jim" crack a few posts ago. Now go back to being horribly, horribly unfunny. I look forward to your cameo in "Blues Brothers 2010.")

The pros do it about a million times better, as proven by this "Daily Show" writer who assumes the Royal Throne o' Stewart and does a darn good job of being the main funnyman. Also, how awesome is John Oliver's cameo as John J. Viacom Jr. III? Indubitably!

So to recap: Witty writers want a bigger piece of the pie. Greedy media fat cats suddenly have no idea what the Internet is and how it can be used to make money. Walking in a straight line while holding a sign with big, bold letters makes people feel like they're accomplishing a lot.

And yeah, I miss "The Daily Show."
