If you’re a fan of satire at all, you’ve probably heard of The Onion, a publication that pretends to be a newspaper — it’s all just entertainment — that crafts outrageous stories that poke fun of modern culture and society in every conceivable way.
They are, for the most part, totally left-wing, but they sometimes put out super funny stuff that’s politically neutral, and then, at other times, they just call it how they see it and end up zinging the left just as hard as they do the right.
Like how they completely eviscerated CNN in their latest story and headline.

Here’s a snippet of the story itself from The Onion:
Explaining that the topic involves an elaborate web of military, political, and economic issues, CNN panelists warned Monday that the North Korea situation was way too complex for them to discuss intelligently. “Viewers should understand that a CNN panel has absolutely no business deliberating about the complicated geopolitical situation in North Korea and will instead spout the dumbest things possible,” said CNN Tonight host Don Lemon, who noted that the interwoven alliances and competing interests of nations like China and Japan made it impossible for a group of six random pundits to do anything but repeat meaningless platitudes, provide uninformed guesses, and start yelling at each other. “We can say ‘Trump’s a dealmaker,’ and we can repeat Kim Jong-un’s name a few times, but with so many intricate, unclear problems, you should realize that we can’t offer anything that even comes close to resembling real insight.
Plenty of folks online decided to weigh in on the hilarious headline:
EVERYTHING is far too complicated for @CNN to discuss intelligently!

CNN has earned a well deserved reputation for being the butt of the news and information industry as the network has been caught time and time again either outright fabricating something or just allowing false information to be spread on its programming without even bothering to fact check it.
President Trump has been at war with the network ever since being sworn into office and routinely puts them back in their place in skirmishes published on Twitter.
One has to wonder when these folks will learn and actually start taking their job seriously and do it with integrity and excellence.
The way it looks now, the answer is never.
