The Onion Fools The New York Times

You may have been surprised to see President Obama's smiling face on the cover of Tiger Beat in last week's The New York Times article about the "original teen-girl tabloid." Your surprise was not unwarranted, as the Times admitted today:

A series of pictures last Sunday of covers of the magazine Tiger Beat, with an article about how the original teen-girl tabloid has remained virtually unchanged since its inception in 1965, erroneously included a parody cover, produced by the satiric newspaper The Onion, that featured a picture of President Obama.
