The Onion investigates breaking news

Very funny Onion story today:

“Despite claims from the TV news outlet to offer ‘nonstop news’ and ‘coverage you can count on,’ an Onion investigation has uncovered hundreds of instances in which KAMR Channel 4′s 10 O’Clock Eyewitness News team relied almost exclusively on news reports, weather forecasts, and even special-interest features already generated by the station’s 6 O’Clock Eyewitness News team.”

And that’s not all The Union uncovered. (Thanks, Rico for the tip!)
