My favorite show is "Best damn sports show period"
I like this show a lot because many famous super stars apper on the stage.
It gives me a offbeat pleasure since I have watched them as their earnest about playings, but they usually show different own characteristics.
Another reason that why I like this show is panels.
They usually sting a satire on current issues about sports. They approach serious current issues as jokes and satires. I think this is what "functions of the media" is about.
