broken news

steps for making a tv spoof:
1) Remember to put jokes in, preferably of the caustic, satiric kind.
2) Remember to put jokes in, see above.
3) Give up when you realise that Chris Morris did it far better with The Day Today and Brass Eye and, frankly, there's no point in you even bothering when his work is so eerily prescient that it's probably now used as a how-to by the very idiots he lampoons.

Yes, you're idiots. Your show is, in fact, virtually undistinguishable from the real thing (see points 1 & 2). The only humour is of the depressing, head shaking kind, when you realise that news has, for the most part, actually sunk this low.
