    Just wondering if anyone else watches Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe/Newswipe shows? In an age of saccharin, mindless television age, he's a refreshing bastion of rage at the stupidity that fills our airwaves. An example for anyone not familiar with him (warning: contains bad language):
    Newswipe segment on the coverage of Jade Goody's life and death.

    Hell yes. Charlie's a clever, clever man. Plus, he's worked with Chris Morris a fair bit, which is a definite plus point in my book.

    I did not know that. Although I did think little bits of Newswipe reminded me of Brasseye (no bad thing), so it doesn't surprise me.
