Ex-FIFA official Jack Warner committed an Internet faux pas when defending himself from corruption charges — he cited The Onion as a real news source.By Matt Picht | May 31, 2015
Ok, time for a public service announcement. See this green logo? That belongs to The Onion, a satirical news website which — and this is important — doesn't report actual news.
So when you post a YouTube video defending yourself from corruption and conspiracy charges, it's not a good idea to cite one of The Onion's fake stories.
"If FIFA is so bad, why is it that the U.S.A. wants to keep the FIFA World Cup? Why is it that they begun games on May 27?" ex-FIFA official Jack Warner said. (Video via Deadspin)
