The Daily Currant...seems to be trying to fool people rather than make a point.

I once described The Onion as being able to "take a crumb of truth and turn it into a three-tiered cake with frosting." Andy Borowitz is in their weight class, but not the Currant, despite their claim that their international perspective is what distinguishes them. Because they try to exploit the moment rather than make a point with it, their crumbs of truth come out as wet, cold porridge.

The Currant's story about Marco Rubio's GOP state of the Union response speech is titled Rubio Introduces Bill to Fund Dehydration Awareness; the Onion's, Rich White People Get Latino Guy To Do Some Work For Them. See the difference?
