Jimmy Fallon showcases Daily Freeman's most excellent juxtaposition


Saugerties high school grad Jimmy Fallon gave a shout-out to his 'hometown newspaper' (I think it's called the Daily Freeman), during a segment called "Screengrabs: Jimmy Shares His Favorites Sent in by Viewers." over at 'Late Night' yesterday.

The fun starts at the 3:30-minute mark, but you just might want to watch the whole thing.

The culprit was a most excellent juxtaposition between a headline and a photo on a most controversial Catskill Mountain Rail Trail story.

Watch the whole segment.

 

PHEW! I thought it was going to be a typo.
