Shouty TV hyperbolists Sky News have been 'heckled' by me as they tried to tell a nation in the grip of election fever about today's developments.
The CAPITAL LETTERED BLACK ON YELLOW newsmongers were in the middle of reporting a bewilderingly piffling event as if it was something of genuine importance when a 35-year-old man, believed to be me, began shouting at the television.
As the broadcasting giants endlessly analysed Gordon Brown's speech being interrupted by a heckler, then interviewing the heckler to find out why he was heckling the Prime Minister, the 35-year-old Sky News heckler - me - began not yelling and screaming and going red a bit in the face, in what turned out to be a fruitless attempt to jolt them into reporting some real news by accident.
"I was heckling them because I decided I didn't really agree with what they were doing, reporting about the man who heckled Gordon Brown," the heckler told me in an exclusive live interview.
"Is this what we've come to? Is this really it? God, there's some nodding twerp on there right now, beaming out at the camera in the sort of excitement you'd reserve for extraterrestrials making contact with earth, yet they're merely introducing an item involving Nick Clegg sitting on a plane. Day two. Day two. I don't know if I'll last till the bloody weekend."
The heckler is reported to have stopped the heckling when Sky anchor Jeremy Thompson started interviewing an overly cheerful Michael Howard. Realising it was a Cnutish endeavour to try and hold back the tide, he weeped softly into his keyboard and admitted defeat.
