The host of The Colbert Report came up with this funny quip on his show June 24th, during The Word segment. While looking at why mainstream media seems to have lost interest in the war in Afghanistan, this is what he had to say:

The news hole is what we insiders call the total available news time. It’s also what John Stossel’s employees call him behind his back.
