'Time' Publishes Definitive Obama Puff Piece

Satire - July 18, 2008 - The Onion

"No news publication has dared to barely scratch the surface like this before," columnist and campaign reporter Michael King wrote in The Washington Post Tuesday. "This profile sets a benchmark for mindless filler by which all other features about Sen. Obama will now be judged. Just impressive puff-journalism all around."


I especially loved the quote, "Time managing editor Rich Stengel said he was proud of the Obama puff piece, and that he hoped it would help to redefine the boundaries of journalistic drivel."

The Onion has showed the New Yorker how satire is done.

It is worth reading no matter what your political persuasion. Funny.
