No Necessarily the News

News org partners with parody mag.

WASHINGTON (XF) - In the wake of reports that Fox News ran a story that turned out to be from a satirical website, owner Rupert Murdoch has announced that Fox will officially be partnering with long running parody magazine The Onion. In a statement released to the press, Murdoch explained the reason for the merger.

"Viewers already expect a certain amount of fiction in our news reporting, so it only made sense to give them more of what they are looking for," the statement reads.

It has also been confirmed that Fox's parent company, News Corp., will launch an as yet unnamed channel showcasing the up-to-the-minute reporting their flagship channel is known best for.
