Charlie Brooker's How to Report the News - Newswipe - BBC Four



Excellent, thanks for this, Fader209. I would also add the inane pointlessness of news presenters interviewing on-location reporters - so self-referential the news program nearly disappears up its own backside.

Yep, this guy is a legend, top stuff. You should all look out for the segment in his current show from the american comedian Doug Stanhope. Probably the funniest man alive, forward thinker yet still mental and hilarious. Anyone who enjoyed Bill Hicks and others will love him.

If you liked that you should watch the latest brooker documentary, "how tv ruined your life". takes a great (and funny) look at how TV relies on fear. for example by looking at what would happen if pens got too hot
