Obama puts the O! in The Onion [Karl]
The Onion — “America’s Finest News Source” and publisher of satirical “fake news” — reports:
‘Time’ Publishes Definitive Obama Puff Piece
NEW YORKÃ¢â‚¬â€Hailed by media critics as the fluffiest, most toothless, and softest-hitting coverage of the presidential candidate to date, a story in this week’s Time magazine is being called the definitive Barack Obama puff piece.
According to political analysts, the Time piece features the most lack-of-depth reporting on Obama ever published, and for the first time reveals a number of inconsequential truths about the candidate, including how he keeps in shape on the campaign trail, and which historical figures the presidential hopeful would choose to have dinner with.
ABC News’ Sunlen Miller Reports: While Obama spent 91 minutes at a campaign event yesterday, the Illinois Senator spent a total of 188 minutes in the gym yesterday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ making three separate stops to Chicago gyms over the course of one day.
This week began withÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â Obama campaignÃ‚Â complaining aboutÃ‚Â the newÃ‚Â satirical New Yorker cover.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â The week concludes withÃ‚Â the establishment media becoming asÃ‚Â vacuous as the satire ofÃ‚Â Obama’s media coverage.Ã‚Â Mission accomplished for Camp Obama.
