The Onion’s Brilliant Trolling Of CNN Prompts A CNN Editor To Respond

08.27.13 6 years ago 18 Comments

Satirical publication The Onion published a satirical article about CNN.com’s very real head story about Miley Cyrus at last night’s VMAs, entitled “Miley Cyrus Tweks, Stuns VMAs Crowd.” Alone, this would have been funny enough, but The Onion attributed the satirical article to CNN.com’s very real Meredith Artley.

Just hours ago, Artley responded, and the thing is, she took the entire event in stride, revealing on her Twitter:

It’s – honestly and truly – good to see that some people can take a joke and have a great career at the same time. There are a lot of other people out there who would have taken The Onion to court.
