6th Tube of Christmas: Epic Lulz

The most extraordinary, outrageous, unintentionally hilarious TV moment I've come across this year comes not from the BBC, or for that matter any of the myriad other channels the average Brit can now receive. It is a piece of 'investigative journalism' from Fox 11, the Los Angeles affiliate of the USA's most notorious news channel, Fox News.

The report centres on a loose-knit community of internet pranksters and 'hackers', and it's the most over-blown, sensationalistic piece of news reporting I have ever seen. I tried to pick out a high point of absurdity and just couldn't - Just when you think it can't get any more ridiculous, it does!

WINNER: Unintentionally Humorous TV Moment of the Year 2007 = Anonymous on Fox 11
