NBC\'s Jeff Zucker on CNBC

Update: I can't embed the video, but you can watch it on CNBC's site here.

I read the transcript of the Jeff Zucker interview from Beijing on CNBC once, and couldn't help but wonder if it was a spoof.  There were comments in there that obviously seemed reasonable (broadcast network television can still pull huge numbers with the right programming) but some of it struck me as a spoof.  "That has to be a spoof!"  But having now seen the transcript on a few web sites, it's apparently definitely not a spoof.  That doesn't mean some of it still isn't extremely funny.

Take your pick, read it on Silicon Alley Insider or TV Newser.  Be warned, the transcripts on either site are in all CAPS, and not easy on the eyes, but it's worth the read just for the entertainment value (you won't learn much of anything new).  Hopefully I'll find the video and be able to post it at some point, Zucker was definitely quite amusing in spots.
