If there's any part of the show that's the laziest, it's that one.

It's a case of: "Hey! Let's fill five minutes reading opinions from Twitter and Yahoo!"
The 'let's all laugh at the clueless punters' segment reading out interweb comments always makes me feel a little uncomfortable....I know they could be said to be fair game by effectively broadcasting their words to the world, and for someone like Brooker it really is fish in a barrel time and presumably means he can knock off a 2 minute section of the weekly grind in, well two minutes, but it just feels a little mean spirited.
It can be effective if handled correctly.
Adam Buxton's Bug and specifically his guest hosting of Buzzcocks showed how you can get humour out of Youtube comments.
