Punternet News Channel?

29 posts in this topic

Now that our household is blessed with satellite TV, offering the chance to view minority channels such as the Caravan Channel, I speculate about a Punternet rolling news channel. A desk anchored perhaps by Laura Lee or Sarah Summers. Every report would be followed by comment from Smiths. Foreign news from our glamorous reporter Xenia. Thought For The Day by Spok's Eyebrows. So who would supply the Market Index? The celebrity gossip? The day's papers?

Surely thought for the day should be provided by a man or woman of the cloth?

It should be supplied by someone capable of "thought" and so that would exclude Spok's Eyebrows, my "board bitch" for sure...

I fear it would be worse than any of the 24 hour Sky or BBC news channels which don't actually have 24 hour news but have a half hours worth or news broadcast 24 hours a day!

The rate topics come around on Punternet I think there may only be X amount of core topics that also have a rotational life of about 24 hours.

The commericals would be very interesting: product such as sex toys, the lastest and greatest condoms, the gels. Then the ads the WGs, Parlors and Agencies. The network may just put the purple site out of business.

With a Punters version of Watchdog?

Can see Anne Robinson grilling some WG:

"Cant you see? You advertised that you do OWO, he paid for it and then you didnt do it? Do you think that fair?"

"Well its my discretion.. plus he had a cheesey cock...."

"Oh right that okay then.. Over to Matt and that Portugeus Biker for more rogue escorts"

"Thanks Anne. Well we've had more than our fair share of escorts up against our wall...But heres another one"

:D

Not at all. I just thought the line must have gone down and we'd have to cut to the flower show.

That would be for my report on those lovely WI ladies and their flower arranging :)
