About The Shot

After 21 years in the satire news business including 6 TV shows, a newspaper, a magazine, 23 books and 5 radio shows the comedy team behind The Chaser finally conceded defeat in 2020 after the real news started to sound more like a farce than the fake headlines we were writing.

With the closure of four of Australia’s newsrooms in the last month, we have now decided if you can’t beat them, join them, and maybe keep a few journalists off the street in the process. The Shot will be bringing you daily updates on the news stories that sound so ridiculous you have to double check whether they’re a Shot story or a Chaser story.
