The Chinese Communist Party has been making headlines today. By sticking their foot in their Party mouthpiece. Official CCP paper The People's Daily was quick to assume this news report about the leader of fellow Communist ally North Korea was completely true.
But, the article is in fact one written by US satire and fake news service, The Onion. It called North Korea's Kim Jong Un their "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2012. And The People's Daily celebrated that with a photo tribute.
It showed Kim at various state events, including one carefully-staged shot of him on horseback. Any hope that the article was self-aware ends there.
But it's okay, the Korea Times made the same mistake about a week ago.
The Onion has now updated their original story, linking to The People's Daily article and calling the Communist mouthpiece "a proud Communist subsidiary of The Onion Inc."
