THE NEWS JUST GOT OWNED

Watch this immediately. In this two-minute video, Charlie Brooker, a British journalist/comedian (they have looser boundaries over there), absolutely DESTROYS the formulaic way TV news reports are created.

If my ability to read a watermark is correct, this aired on BBC Four. I didn’t even realize there was a fourth BBC. How many BBCs do those Brits have, anyway? Is there a BBC Eight yet? I guess they probably wouldn’t nickname it The Ocho, huh? England doesn’t exactly have a swelling tide of Mexican immigrants to influence its dialect. Hmmm, what’s the Hindi word for “eight”?
