The world's most generic news report - Newswipe

YT: A hilarious parody of lazily edited news reports from Series 2, Episode 2 of Charlie Brooker's Newswipe.

Charlie Brooker is one of the most scathing analysts for any subject you care to throw at him. His ability to spot hypocrisy and poor quality is more finely tuned even than David Mitchell's. I'd call him a genius if his particular art wasn't "Delivering a depressingly accurate and acidic analysis of things."


Absolutely brilliant!!!

It´s like they get a box of Legos and all they ever do is build the same boring house.

Very frustrating for creative camerapeople too, since nowadays only the same shots are ever requested and you are only considered "good" in the industry if you can nail that request without wasting too many takes.

It makes editing very easy, but it also sucks because it limits the art of visual storytelling.
