* WrongFootageGag: Occasionally covers real-life examples from news shows. [[http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s3517892.htm One rather hilarious incident]] had an ABC News Breakfast reporter talking about "the world's fastest man" Usain Bolt's preparation for the London Olympics, which was unfortunately accompanied by a clip of then-Opposition Leader Tony Abbott running for the door of the House of Representatives to avoid a vote, after finding out disgraced MP Craig Thomson would be voting on his side.

* ArchEnemy: Radio personality Alan Jones[[note]]picture BillOReilly with a worse temper and without people taking him seriously[[/note]] is perhaps the most frequently covered media entity on the show of late, [[DanBrowned and for good reason]].
