Charlie Brooker perfectly apes essentially all news stories on British TV (especially regional news) in this little clip explaining exactly how a 1.30 piece is put together. As funny as it is, it does raise a good point that I’ve been wittering to myself about for years now: I don’t watch the news to see what ‘the average person’ thinks about it. I watch news to have well informed experts tell me their opinions. Not what Bill from Hull ‘rekons’ on global warming or on the latest tax on milk bottles…Mitchell and Web clearly agree with me.
