The BBC Four programme Newswipe, the satirical and cynical dissection of the news as done by Screenwipe‘s Charlie Brooker, is back for a second series. This week’s episode (debuted yesterday) includes a six and a half minute long mini-documentary by Adam Curtis, who’s become quite known ever since his documentary The Power of Nightmares. In just under 400 seconds Curtis will show us how we’ve all become Richard Nixon.
