I guess they don't have such influential publications. ;)
The online version of the Chinese Communist Party's official newspaper appears to have fallen for a spoof by the US satirical website, The Onion.

The People's Daily ran a 55-page photo spread of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after he was declared The Onion's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.

Love it when someone, some organization or some country gets taken in by The Onion. :)

I'm still looking for that remote control I saw advertised on the back cover of the Onion. It operates by remote control so you can use it even if you can't find it.
