Funniest.Video.Ever. "Diebold Accidentally Leaks Results Of 2008 Election Early"

I think the approach (ruthless parody) and the details ("segmentation fault" on the computer screen, the little bantering at the end over revelations that should have been absolutely horrifying, the whole rhythm and delivery) capture very well the absolutely nauseating, soul-deadening style of "MSM", that cheerful perkiness and evenhandedness in the face of the most abject disaster and depravity.

There's a short commercial from Irish Spring Soap at the beginning and end, at least on the version I saw. (I see the Onion has lots of advertisers.) Maybe we should buy a bar of Irish Spring next time we're out and someone might get a message. (No, I don't work for or have any stake in Irish Spring or any soap company!)
