I'm starting to wonder if Monty Python was actually the BBC's most objective "hard news" program.

Just heard on Channel Nine news break (and badly paraphrased):

'As Australia prepares for the swine flu, [some person] says families should start stocking up on food and water...

[images of a lady putting big containers of water and muesli bars into her cupboard]

But [So-and-So] says, "It's too
early to start hoarding!"'

Holy mother of f**k!

I have never had much respect for the media, but they just crossed the line from general incompetence splashed with hints of evil derived from a systematic inability to critique themselves or properly approach any matters of bias whatsoever, to INSANE CARTOONISH NONSENSE-HUMOUR ZANINESS!

Kent Brockman: Hordes of panicky people seem to be evacuating the town for some unknown reason. Professor, without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?

Professor: Yes I would, Kent.
