Kudos to Mediate for catching this one. The New York Times has joined the worldwide list of publications fooled by The Onion! That’s what happens when your satire is firmly based on the truth!
A series of pictures last Sunday of covers of the magazine Tiger Beat, with an article about how the original teen-girl tabloid has remained virtually unchanged since its inception in 1965, erroneously included a parody cover, produced by the satiric newspaper The Onion, that featured a picture of President Obama.
I should mention, Mediate has become a daily stop for me. If you enjoy reading about the media this is the place to go.
