Design Humor: 43 Seconds with John Stossel

On the surface, the following video represents 20/20's attempt to correct a long overdue omission – the historical lack of reporting on graphic design on America's longest-running and most-watched news magazine show.

But let the sudden appearance of Comic Sans be your first clue that this "clip" from 20/20 is a parody. In this case, a piece of satirical reporting produced by John Stossel at the behest of Winterhouse's Jessica Helfand for the AIGA National conference last year.

Regardless of its legitimate newsworthiness, enjoy Stossel's ever-so-brief report on three most common design mistakes Americans make.
