* Music/BillBailey references this in his stand-up shows ("The crab that e-mails the coastguard on the impending tidal wave...") and claims that England has become so pathetic that they work as the kicker on foreign news broadcasts ("...et finalement: les anglais!")
* Creator/GeorgeCarlin used to talk about this quite a lot. Things regularly reported on the news that he didn't care about included Mickey Mouse's birthday, celebrity deaths, and "whether or not the pandas in the zoo didn't fuck again this year."

* Parodied in the Creator/WillFerrell movie ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'', which included a news broadcast concluding with a water-skiing squirrel, and ongoing coverage ([[SeriousBusiness "Panda Watch"]]) of a pregnant panda at the San Diego Zoo. The climax of the movie takes place at the birth of the pandas. ''No one'', not even Veronica Corningstone, who is annoyed about being assigned to sappy human interest stories, questions the significance of this story, and none of hordes of journalists at the zoo that day notice when several people nearly die after jumping into the grizzly enclosure.

* ''Series/TheDailyShow'' refers to it as the "Moment of Zen" -- originally it was just a piece of unrelated footage, such as a man getting sat on by an elephant, but it has evolved over recent years and is now usually an extension of something covered in the main body of the show.

* Parodied, as with most news tropes, in ''Series/TheDayToday''. One notable example has anchor Chris Morris begin to interview a woman who is organising a jam-making contest for charity... unfortunately, he doesn't turn off his usual 'hard-hitting-Jeremy-Paxman-asking-the-tough-questions' persona, reducing the poor woman to tears in the process.

* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck, having a big ego, gets a big boost whenever a newscaster talks about a crime he solved. Unfortunately the newscast promptly switches gears to a baby panda or cute kitty, causing everyone to forget about his exploits. Subverted when the two new baby pandas are clearly fighting each other. People still find it cute.
