Jack & Jill Politics.  This site, founded by a news editor at The Onion, Baratunde Thurston, is an interesting blog that further complicates the split between news and “fake news.”  For instance, this afternoon’s headline, with a photo borrowed from Reuters:

U.S. President Barack Obama steps on First Lady Michelle Obama’s dress as they walk out to receive Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha as they arrive for an official dinner in their honor at the White House in Washington, March 14, 2012.
