ONN Presents: The 15 Funniest Live Local News FAIL Videos


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been fooled by The Onion’s headlines. We’re not the only ones. They treat incredibly fake news stories with the same kind of gravitas and grandiose posturing as real news outlets. Hell, more times than not they’re BETTER than the real news. You want to see a dumbass’s head explode? Watch the Onion News Network with ’em. Though we don’t have new footage of the ONN, we do have some real ‘reels’ of various local newspeople utterly failing at their job.
