Who pays for the crisis?
I've recently discovered The Onion's YouTube channel, video offshoot of the well-established American satire franchise. The short vids are like Chris Morris and Armando Iannucci's The Day Today updated 15 years and shifted Stateside. This one is amongst the more overtly political, simultaneously mocking inane daytime television, the commercial desperation of reality TV and the ruthlessness of crisis-ridden capitalism. That's all in three and a half minutes. And it's funny.
