O’erweening self importance

Of late, I have been distressed to find myself waiting in spaces where Sky News is playing. I am astounded that they have not been sued for breach of copyright by Chris Morris. I had thought that “The Day Today” was a satire or parody – but the folk at Sky would seem to have taken it as an instruction manual. Indeed, they would seem to have gone even further over the top than did the estimable Mr Morris – the graphical cut-scenes, the fanfares and the CGI workspace in which the newsreaders are placed.  Truly, satire is very hard to pull off in the 21st century when it is so rapidly overtaken by real life.
