Well this is escalating quickly. SBS 2’s The Feed has released a trailer for an episode this coming Thursday, featuring Australia’s top broadcast journalists in an all-out war, Anchorman style. The full segment will be part of The Feed’s final episode for 2014, which airs on Thursday November 27 at 7:30pm.
David Marr oversees the (lack of) rules, stating “Your legacy will live on in the future of journalism – BuzzFeed articles and Tweets for Mamamia”, as journos scowl at each other and brandish everything from knives and barb-wired baseball bats to pitchforks and rolling pins (wielded by political journalist Annabel Crabb).

“Who would have thought all these TV personalities would be so eager to beat the living snot out of one another”, said executive producer Nick Hayden while speaking on the segment with news.com.au.
The segment is part of the boundless creativity that left-field news program The Feed has been bringing to SBS 2 for awhile now. And what a way to close out this season, with Lee Chin asking, in her usual badass tone, ““Are you going to fight to the death or talk me to death?”
The segment will feature Karl Stefanovic, Lisa Wilkinson, Richard Wilkins, Sandra Sully, Hugh Rimington, Derryn Hinch, Juanita Phillips, Steve Cannane, Annabel Crabb, and David Marr. The full version of Broadcast Battleground airs on The Feed, Thursday 27 November at 7.30pm.
