The Eastern Daily Press regularly wins awards for its online efforts but Axegrinder fears that it may not pick up any prizes for its frankly scary virtual newsreader, Brian.

While Brian’s newsreading skills are passible, he looks like a cross between a disturbingly animated Crimewatch e-fit picture and Mr Potato Head. One user of the site has already created an anti-Brian with glowing read eyes, lips moving to a death metal soundtrack.

You can see Brian the e-newsreader Newsfast.info ‒and the anti-Brian, called NewsSatan, at Newsfast.com.
