Cartoon Tuesday/Ad Nauseum: Brought to You by Acura


Did The Media Treat Bachmann Unfairly Because She's An Insane Woman?

For years, Streetsblog has chronicled some of the most ridiculous car advertisements that appear in print or television. We've also tried to occasionally lighten the mood with the "Cartoon Tuesday" series. Leave it to The Onion News Network to give us a chance to do both at once.

In an otherwise ho-hum report on whether or not Michelle Bachman's presidential campaign was hampered by her insanity, David Barrowdale, whose opinions are sponsored by Acura, is forced to give them from the inside of the car itself. If only all newscasters were required to do the same when their news shows only prevent half the picture on transportation policy before heading off too commercial.
