And now for the news

Because I'm lazy and groaning under the weight of pointlessly consumed calories (happy birthday Jesus), I've dug out an episode of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe that talks about television news and its origins. Brooker is very, very funny. But the trick is that his message is very, very serious. The only place you'll find more finely observed editorial commentary in from Graydon Carter in Vanity Fair magazine. Watch and weep ladies and gents. Watch and weep.

If you'd like to positively gorge yourself on Screenwipe a chap has assembled every moment of every series here.
