New York Times Fooled By The Onion

February 8, 2012 by staff 

New York Times Fooled By The Onion, The New York Times found itself with egg on its face when it was forced to admit that it had been fooled by The Onion.

The paper ran a correction on Saturday, acknowledging that, in a gallery of covers of Tiger Beat magazine that it used to commemorate the recently deceased founder of the venerable teen publication, it included a fake cover done by The Onion. The cover featured President Obama, and was used for a 2007 “story” about how a Tiger Beat cover had led to Obama’s surge in popularity with tweens.

The correction read:

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.
