Missing Girl Probably Raped | The Onion - America's Finest News Source I love the Onion, I think it's an awesome laugh all the time. However, this video caught my attention because it seems to me that this could pass as actual news. Are we as a society really this much obsessed with violence that we let stuff like this make the news? What I mean is, yes (let's say it's a real story) it's horrifying to lose a child and it's helpful to get the word out, but does this fake newscast strike you as possibly a real broadcast? To me, it looks like other stories I've seen.
