  2. Finally a true representation of what news really is! Irrelevant and full of bull shit! What makes this even better is that it is not far-fetched. I see news stories like this all the time.

  3. Now THIS was a news story! haha. These guys have really paid attention to the layout of news stations and have thrown it back at us without the....well...bulls*^t. I thought this was very clever and was a great perspective.

  4. I think the funniest thing about this clip is that it is completely true and it really captures how meaningless most news stories are. What does this say about us as viewers that News shows need to present everything as entertainment to keep our attention?

  5. Has anyone seen The Onion Movie? It's basically this clip, but it's an hour and a half long with something that you might be able to call a plot. The Onion provides some really biting commentary on the way the media delivers news to the masses, and what they even consider news. I've also seen clips similar to this one and in the Onion movie that specifically address advertising and it's adverse effect on news casts.

  6. YES, this is too funny. This was quite entertaining and validates many people's views on some news stories.

  7. Perhaps you should be careful when using satire to help illustrate a point. You wouldn't want to confuse anyone, would you?
