Greatest satirical TV show ever...
3 April 2003 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

If most satire is biting, then CNNNN will take a bite out of you like Kim Beazily only dreams he could! And that is a lot. Chaser Nonstop News Network is by far the greatest satire ever aired on TV. Taking shots at both Australian and International news and public figure in the sort of fashion only CNN can. They didn't have to change much for CNN's bias to become funny.

It better win the logie, if it doesn't then I will set a fire in every backyard Backyard Blitz has attempted to spice up.
