Like most news shows, the Onion New Network has different news segments. There is the Factzone, where a news anchor goes over the events of the world. The way these events are delivered is meant to put fear into people in a humorous way. There is also a parody segment made to resemble reporting from the Today Show. The news anchor will report the news in a quick manner and present some odd subjects for discussion. No one is off limits from this parody show. They make fun of everything from the White House to brothels. The show gets its parody from many well know news shows, including the likes of CNN and other serious new channels.
