A man pretending to ride a horse while making fun of Seoul's beautiful people gets viewed over one billion times.
It's no accident that it was Newsnight that played host to the BBC's current and perhaps most fateful car-crash yet. The performance of this now little watched late-night take on the affairs of the day has become a key indicator of the corporation's commitment to its supposed purpose.
America is often criticised for being insular. It was said that, in the build-up to the Gulf War, some people in the southern states - genuinely - we...
In the words of Yakko Warner before he pulled out his Wheel O' Morality, "It's that time again". Yes, like so many X-Factor finalists 2012 is all but finished for good, and so all that's left is to look back at how things have developed over the year.
The sensational stories of killings involving high numbers of people have invariably occurred in locations, such as schools, where firearms are strictly prohibited. Efforts are currently underway in some States to require a certain number of school faculty be armed and trained in crisis management, providing at least some security against mass shootings. I applaud these efforts.
They define us, our Sky Plus reminders, or the scribbled boxes we draw around our to-watch list in the weekly TV guide. It seems that what we watch even defines the names we choose for the next generation of viewers.
Who will it be this year? It could be anyone who has made the news or was in the news during the year that has less than five weeks to finish. We shall know on 14 December the name of the Time Person of the Year for 2012.
Medical experts say that an extreme bout of morning sickness usually indicates twins or even triplets! It means the royal stork will have to carry a heavy load. Except for Buckingham Palace the rest of Britain is worrying itself grey or bald over the complications a twin arrival would create.
My slight bogan part aside, I really am the classic middle class, well-educated white male. I mean, there's no point me playing the lottery. By being born in a first world country to white middle class parents, I've already won first division. Big time.
So what has happened in this country in the decade since the last census? What has caused this huge flight from religion? It's complicated, but we have to take into account that in that intervening period we have had the trauma of 9/11 and the subsequent rise in Islamic militancy.
These two DJs are now also the victims and they are hurting. They look as if they are two tormented souls. They obviously feel as if they have caused this tragic death, this is evident in the interview. Never in my time have I ever seen two people's faces more wracked with guilt or more riddled with remorse.
It's been a fascinating week immersed in the complexity of the Middle East. One that illustrates vividly the heartache and the joy of working with World Vision. As the United Nations General Assembly voted to give Palestine non-voting observer status, I was meeting with a group of extraordinary Palestinian children full of potential and a passion for peace.
The announced increases in capital investment are welcome but the fact that they are funded by cuts in other areas of public spending mean the Chancellor is merely shuffling money from one pot to another, which will do nothing for growth.
Why is the media so anxious about phone tapping? I would love if someone as powerful as Rupert Murdoch gave a sh*t about what I say.
But, we have the forgotten heroes. These heroes and heroines hardly get mentioned, I am talking about the local people, the villagers, let me call them the community. They are the soldiers in the front line; they live their lives fighting Aids. I celebrate them today and this is why.
Probably they run to be nominated for the 11 Biggest Social Media Disasters 2012, because the idea to share a condom seems quite disgusting to me.
