As has been reported recently, CNN laid off 50 staffers, primarily videographers and editors. Why?

Yep, zero cost to the network since these folks won’t be paid. I could go on about that part of the story, but Stephen Colbert explains it so well in this clip from “This Colbert Report” on Comedy Central.
