but the clip of sting on newsnight makes up for everything, ever.
I love that guy.
in a harrowing kind of way.
Love those guys, too.
Also he's got to stop using that Johann Johannson track.
Thought this week's episode was fairly weak.
and as brooker himself said, the majority of MSM coverage of the tragedy was pretty exemplary.
That is the dilemma of 'live' satire; some weeks events could lead you to a goldmine. In others though, events transpire which mean it just isn't possible.
thought he could have gone deeper into the private companies and business interests already being set up to exploit the haitian crisis, like the imf loans which have stipulations against wage increases, but still funny and intelligent deconstruction of the media's coverage of the disaster. also found the bit on celebrities undermining serious causes really interesting...that world peace day bit was incredibly cringeworthy...
