The Heat ad must be the most insensitive thing in ages: 'Lonely? Cold? Buy Heat Magazine and SAVE A POUNDDDD!' I'm sure the victims of the Haiti disaster will be glad of a crappy little gossip rag. Evil or Very Mad

By the way, I loved Charlie Brooker slating 'Live From Studio Five'! This week he included the hosts' comments on Simon Cowell's cheridee song. The one on the right said, 'Oh, it's too slow - they should have gone for something more upbeat'.

Brooker asked 'What, like Come On Eileen?'

This episode was also repeated on BBC-2. I liked the Week In Bullshit bit about N-Dubz!

Yes, I enjoy Newswipe but also find myself getting a bit depressed by it.

I love newswipe, I thought his dig this week at journalists standing outside dark buildings reporting on nothing was right on the button. Laughing

Yes, indeed. This has always been one of Terry Wogan's favourite topics, too - such as the local TV reporter standing in a flood in order to do a piece to camera telling us that the high street in which he/she is standing in is... er... flooded.
