The Onion, if you didn't know, is a parody online news source. Today's headline there is basically that Eli Manning, after winning his second Super Bowl yesterday, is asking his dad if he can now finally quit playing football. Being fooled by The Onion is the modern equivalent of being fooled in the old days by Mad Magazine. So what does it say that Louisiana Republican Representative John Fleming was fooled by an article in The Onion claiming that Planned Parenthood (ooooh, evil) was readying to open a billion dollar abortion factory. From Huffington Post this morning:
Fleming shared a link on Facebook to an article from the satirical newspaper headlined "Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex."Unfortunately, you're more likely to get accurate information regarding Planned Parenthood from The Onion than you are by getting your information from the GOP.
"More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale," he wrote.
