CNN Links to The Onion

I didn’t think this was real until I went to CNN’s homepage and saw it for myself. Why the hell is venerable, worldwide news agency CNN linking to a satirical newspaper published at the University of Wisconsin in Madison?

Was this an auto-generated link that caught the search-bot’s eye because it listed Facebook news? I really hope so, because otherwise, CNN is either blissfully unaware of the world around them OR they are pandering to an entertain-news audience and hurting their own credibility.
