The Best of Kent Brockman’s Segments on ‘The Simpsons’

Without the crack reporting of one Kent Brockman, how in the world would the poor people of Springfield know which Pope is which?

Between Smartline, Eye on Springfield and his usual weekday newscasting duties, Kent Brockman is one of the busiest media magnates in the Simpsons canon. His hard-hitting coverage explores off-screen oddities and bizarre scoops that leave us begging Marge, Homer, Lisa, Bart or even Maggie not to change the channel so that we can finally figure out what happened to the fluffy kitten and its ball of yarn. Kent Brockman is the editorializing, dubiously informed and endlessly entertaining engine that keeps the in-universe television of The Simpsons running, even if he’s just running to give our new insect overlords a list of names.

Here are the best Kent Brockman segments in Simpsons history, starting with…
