And now, news by formula

A few days ago I posted BriTANick's brilliant trailer for every Oscar winning film. Of course that applied to fiction.

However, even fact isn't immune to formula, in particular the reporting of 'fact'.

BBC Newswipe with Charlie Brooker

Onion (satire)

It isn't just the delivery of television news that is questionable. A lot of so called human interest stories are a waste of time.
