China reads the Onion (and believes it)

The Onion news article awarding Kim Jong Un the accolade of Sexiest Man Alive for 2012 was a pretty amusing article. But no where near as funny as finding out that China believed it. The China People’s Daily has done a tribute to the pseudo Sexiest Man Alive 2012 by means of a photo slide show.

I guess what is most scary is how the Chinese editors/management at China’s People Daily didn’t pause and think, ‘this doesn’t quite sound right’? But then again, the China People’s Daily has never know for its journalistic integrity anyway.
