Jimmy Fallon “caught” the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, on his show, which should not surprise us. But it does us. Because in our country, television satire on the big “systemic” channels, it is either absent or rarely occurs.
Now you will say, how can we talk about television political satire, when there are not even political talk shows and investigative journalism shows (with very few exceptions), which one would say is completely consistent with the positions taken by the quality of the press of our country in the international lists.
But let’s get to the point. Fallon, on his last show on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, read news headlines and then compared them to movie titles. For the Greek prime minister, who is currently in New York for the UN General Assembly, the show chose the following: “The next headline is: ‘Greek PM announces relief measures’. It could have been: ‘Coming to cinemas next summer: ‘Roger Federer is the new Mr Bean’.”
A title that characterizes the whole “paradox”, i.e. the relief measures as announced in the midst of the energy crisis in Greece, culminating in the housing measures. On Fallon’s show, it’s not (just) us saying it. Beyond that, the other similarities are coincidental.
It is also noted that according to secure information, the above excerpt will not be played on Greek television channels.
For the rest, the theme News & Improved, follows the following pattern: “Have you ever seen a photo on the news and automatically thought the headline should be different?” In addition to the Greek prime minister, in Fallon’s segment that also had a birthday, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron were commented on, as well as celebrities like Harry Styles. Ok, average humor but at least we keep the effort, which in order not to repeat ourselves, we look for it with binoculars, mainly on the internet.
