Hijacking TV station live shots is a unique tactic used by a group called NEWSBREAKERS. It's an effective and hilarious approach to criticizing media and calling attention to the problems in broadcast journalism.
"NEWSBREAKERS is a nonpartisan, nonviolent media watchdog group dedicated to the improvement of journalism. It offers comment and critique on the role of television news in informing the public. The group relies on parody and non-traditional media interventions." From the Newsbreaker's website.
Check out the NEWSBREAKERS website and watch some of the vid clips. If you like The Daily Show, you'll get a kick out of NEWSBREAKERS which also claims to have an important social purpose as well.
