Andy Driscoll, KFAI host, duped by The Onion's "Drone Flyover" inauguration photo



Drones are scary, but they aren't yet this scary.

Good satire is based on truth, but isn't truthful in and of itself. This is an important distinction to keep in mind lest you end up making the mistake KFAI host Andy Driscoll made yesterday.

On Facebook, Driscoll -- a St. Paul resident who hosts KFAI's TruthToTell show show on Monday mornings --shared an ominous looking photo of a drone flyover during Monday's inaugural festivities in Washington, D.C. He wasn't aware that the image was actually photoshopped by The Onion until he was alerted by a commenter on the Facebook thread.

In a comment further down the thread, Driscoll writes that he's "Never seen three in a cluster formation like that, but they're obviously scanning the crowd for potential trouble - all monitored by a site in Las Vegas."

1. Las Vegas has a secret monitoring base?

That's genius. Who wouldn't want to work for the government? You get to live in Vegas baby!
