That was The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart on Tuesday night, referring to Ron Paul’s decades-old newsletters. Just another way to describe democratizing publishing.
Bonus: Ron Paul’s 2012 website runs WordPress. And he’s not the only one.
Double Bonus: Comedy Central’s Indecision site is WordPress too. (I knew thedailyshow.com wasn’t, but it didn’t take long to find one that was.)
