Creator/CharlieBrooker's ''Newswipe'' is a spinoff of ''Series/{{Screenwipe}}'', Charlie Brooker's television-review show, focused particularly on news reporting. It's especially interesting because Charlie Brooker admits in the first episode that he hardly knows anything about current events, the news, or anything else, and was hoping to learn more as part of this show. This gives the show more accessibility than most shows about the news, or indeed the news itself.

The show, while still funny, is usually quite bleak in tone, and not for the faint of heart in some instances. It exposes many of the lies and sensationalism inherent in much of the news reporting. Altogether educational but also disheartening at times.
