image for Fox Kills Rabbit
The End of Boring News Programmes

BBC Director General, Mark Thompson - known to his chums as Rabbit - has been caught in the headlights shone by a murderous Fox. The Trembling Rabbit, his nose quivering with fear, agreed the Fox should have a TV Channel to take on the BBC.

Having signed the BBC's official promise to back such a channel Thompson suddenly felt the Fox's fangs in his throat and expired whimpering 'It's your turn now'.

The Fox, having tasted blood saw Channel 4 as a TV channel to gobble up, starting with a news programme that had upset a number of Fox's friends. The ITV would be next on his menu.

The coast would then be clear for Fox and Sky, with Channel 5 providing a minute a day of the nearest thing to news on any channel.

'A minute a day should be enough news for anyone' chirped Rupert Murdoch 'this will avoid boring, tedious programmes which have become part of British culture for far too long.'

Make j.w.'s day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
