Note that, although some of these shows give plenty of useful information, watching one is less effective than reading a newspaper, a warning which Jon Stewart in particular works hard to make clear (although scientific studies disagree and found that ''Series/TheDailyShow'' watchers were more informed on current events than people who watch and read traditional news media). Whether watching the [[NewsBroadcast "real" news shows]] that these shows parody is effective at all is more debatable.

* Indian news/media commentary portal Newslaundry has a series known as Clothesline, where the anchor, veteran journalist Madhu Trehan does this for news media, mostly television, crossing over with {{MST}}, by adding her own commentary. A more actual news parody is the series Newslaundry Lite.

* And on BBC radio is the PanelShow ''Radio/TheNewsQuiz'', which is about 13 years older than ''Have I Got News'' and follows a different format. The host asks a question whose answer is current news to one of the four 'contestants' (usually comedians and occasionally politicians), who then proceed to mock that particular story. After each answer, the host will provide scripted mockery of that story (often involving puns), [[ThePointsMeanNothing award points]], and move on. Each round, a cutting from newspapers or online news will be read out, and the final round has no points awarded as each guest reads out their own cutting instead. [[AudienceParticipation These cuttings are generally sent in by listeners from across the country, resulting in some being from obscure local papers.]]
* BBC radio also provides the much more straightfoward News Parody ''Radio/TheNowShow'', where Hugh Dennis, Steve Punt and rotating guests (special or otherwise) thoroughly mock a news story of their choice. There is frequently, but not always, a musical segment.
