Communist News Site Relays Onion Piece as Straight News

November 28, 2012

Via Facebook friends, National Review Online, and everyone else,

The People’s Daily Online, the mouthpiece of China’s Communist Party, has fallen for a satirical article in the Onion proclaiming North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un the “Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.” The report credulously quotes the Onion’s endorsement . . . .

The People’s Daily piece has since been taken down.  Oops!  How embarrassing.
