An Unexpected News Source

Maybe I should add The Onion to my regular list of real-news sources, right alongside The Daily Show. Up until now, I’d always assumed that, while Jon Stewart had ventured into providing better news reporting than any other television news source, at least The Onion was still limited to satire.

But looking back, this piece from January of 2001 turned out to be right on the money. Funny how we thought that, at the time, it was nothing but humorous exaggeration.
