Per the NY Times this week, The Onion News Network is coming to TV. Yippeee! We’ve been needing a second fake news show because Jon Stewart can’t cover it all. And CNN doesn’t cover it period. So good good good. Unfortunately it will be aired on The Independent Film Channel, which limits the audience. Many of us will not be able to see it in real time, but their web site or Hulu will probably carry it.
“The Onion, the satirical news organization that broke the fake story that the smoke monster from “Lost” would receive its own spinoff series . . . “
I wonder if it will air in Afghanistan where it is the 174th day of the ninth year of the War.
