Craig Newmark Takes Our Cause to Colbert

As you may have heard, we celebrated our 10th anniversary earlier this month by honoring 10 media movers and shakers from the past decade with Golden Boas awards. Among the recipients was FBNY frenemy Stephen Colbert, who, due to prior commitments such as campaigning for president and practicing his brow furrow, couldn’t make the award ceremony.

No worries, we had a secret weapon. Before last night’s Colbert Report, Craig Newmark, our partner in mischief and Golden Boa winner, presented Mr. Colbert with his <a href="award, and boy did he look pleased. Well done Craig, well done.

Tonight’s word? We win.
