EPIC FAIL!: FoxNews cites an Onion article as real news


Recommended Posts

And so another news organization falls victim to The Onion News Network


FoxNation.com i'm guessing is an extra limb of Fox News that got to excited over an article Onion posted depicting Obama in a defeated manner. Fox already took it down, but not before someone took this screenie.




Yes, the Fox Nation editors were apparently so enamored with an Onion piece from today entitled "Frustrated Obama Sends Nation Rambling 75,000-Word E-Mail" that they reposted the first two paragraphs in their culture section with nary a sign as to its fictional nature. The only clue that this wasn't real (besides a quick peek at your inbox to confirm that Barack Obama hasn't been emailing you) was a link at the bottom instructing readers to go to TheOnion.com for the real story. This tiny link was, unfortunately, not enough for the vast majority of FN readers. At least, that's the way it seems from the comments section.

at least they cited a new organization that's just as, if not more, trustworthy than itself

On a high note...this article surfaced to show the good intentions of Al Qaeda
