Stolen Newsreader is a sketch from the third episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus, "How to Recognise Different Types of Trees From Quite a Long Way Away."


Newsreader Michael Queen (John Cleese) begins reading the six o'clock news as marauders steal him along with his desk. In the bed of a truck, he is driven quite a distance (whilst still reading the news) until he is taken to a jetty, where he is pushed off into the water.
