DP Action News is a core segment of Drunken Peasants that has gone through many names, though has always centered around the peasants picking apart the news from an altered perspective. It is the most commonplace segment in the show's history, as it was the first real segment officially introduced to the podcast while it was known as the News Segment. The segment was also formerly known as Political Shit after Runny Lump made his first intro for the segment.

Description

The segment originally took up half of the podcast, being followed up in the second half by Q&A or Stupid Ads. This system was eventually retired in favor of multiple segments. The News Segment was eventually revived with a new intro, turning into the Political Shit Segment, which was further re-stylized into DP Action News months later. Ben controls what videos are played and when they end; basically the fate of this segment lies entirely on his shoulders. It's sometimes difficult for the peasants to tell where this segment ends and Crazy People begins, such is the instance with people like Alex Jones.
