New Poll

What is your major source of fake news?

  1. Saturday Night Live
  2. The Daily Show
  3. The Onion (thanks, Newsblog 5000!)
  4. Fox News
- Poll boldly ripped off from Jim Shea. Select your choice below!

- Badtux the Snarky Penguin


  1. The Daily Show and the Onion.

  2. The Daily Show. The Onion is brilliant, but I don't always get there. I never miss the Daily Show.

  3. You know, it occurred to me that the Daily Show is really not so fake. At least compared to Fox. Or how about the Judith Miller era NY Times. That was a great source of fake news. The Onion purports to be fake, but who can forget their "..the national nightmare of peace and prosperity is over" article? Maybe they're not so much fake, but future news.

    I'm going to go check and see if they're posting any future lottery numbers.

  4. Fox News. Okay, where's the real poll?

  5. SNL - I don't get TDS or FOX. Sometimes, I check in on the Onion.

  6. The Daily Show, and the Colbert Report! Both are worthy.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
