** This parodies the RealLife situation involving ''Series/NewsAtTen'' anchor Reggie Bosanquet, an erratic and unpredictable anchor who could usually be relied upon, by ten at night, to be at the very least interestingly drunk. It is thought the reason Bosenquet escaped the sack and remained a newsreader for so long is that the public loved him and his appearances guaranteed high ratings. He could be relied upon to be, er, ''gallant'' to his female co-anchor, and the bit at the end of the news where the two anchors are seen chatting to each other - without sound - was usually a case of Reggie sexually propositioning her, and she trying to take it with a smile on her face, as if they were merely exchanging small-talk. This was further parodied by ''Series/NotTheNineOClockNews'' as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L17q1VMHz8E the Reggie Bosenquet Song]] - the high-functioning alcoholic had a sizeable EstrogenBrigade fan-club who adored him.

* ''Series/DropTheDeadDonkey'' was mostly about the chaos ''behind'' the cameras, but occasionally Henry's temper or Sally's idiocy would carry through to the broadcast. There's also Damian's sensationalist field reports (which always resulted in the cameraman being injured).

Added DiffLines:

* All newscasts in ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' are done by the same caster, Howard Handupme. While he would try to be professional, sometimes his skewed basis would be seen, or perhaps he would be just a little too candid. For example, in "Monster Under The Bed", when Baby Sinclair figures out a way to resolve the crisis without it having to devolve into a firefight, he keeps trying to downplay it until it becomes apparent that the situation will end peacefully, and not in a juicy bloodbath like he clearly hopes. Also, this bit from the first episode;
-->'''Howard:''' A meteor three times the size of Earth is headed on a collision course that will result in the extinction of all life as we know it. ''(Is handed a paper)'' This just in, "No, it's not."

** In the episode "You Kent Always Say What You Want", it is also subtly implied that he was not happy about having to interview Homer in regards to winning his 1,000,000th Ice Cream cone at the ice cream parlor, especially when it forced him to abandon doing a heated discussion on the War in Iraq, but he ended up having to do so due to one of his show's sponsors being the same Ice Cream company that Homer won the contest in.

** In "Bart Gets Famous", Brockman refuses to do a news story because his danish was stolen by Bart and given to Krusty. So they get the Bumblebee Man to do it instead.

** She once proposed that reports of an "evil monkey" attacking a high school [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2009-02-13 could be the work of an evil monkey trainer]] determined to terrorize our children. She then quickly dismissed this theory, and admits it was only an excuse to show a silly graphic.
