Have You Noticed that News is Becoming Info-Porn? Here is a Video Parody from the BBC: "How To Report The News"

Have you noticed that news is becoming Info-Porn?   With multitudes of titles, it comes in many shapes and sizes — but you know it when you see it.

Follow the formula and the content doesn't seem to matter.  It starts with a lackluster establishing shot, followed by a walking and talking preamble. Next various facts will pop on the screen as if you're watching a bad PowerPoint presentation …  We are exposed to a seemingly endless variety of sameness.

For a funny take on this, watch Charlie Brooker's – How To Report The News from the BBC.  I thought this short video was well-done and quite clever.

Have fun.
