How ‘Follow the Money’ is Like The Onion

Have you seen “Follow the Money with Eric Bolling” on Fox Business?  It is a fun show to watch, mainly because the panelists shout at each other.

Have you also seen The Onion News Network’s “In the Know”?  It is a parody of pundit shows.

It is striking how similar these two shows are.  It should be noted that “In the Know” isn’t really a show but a mock show created by The Onion to parody cable news.

Let’s take a look at two videos to see the similarities.

Both are great to watch.  But as you can see, the parody isn’t so different than the real thing.
