If you need to get your news, you could do worse than The Onion, a new poll shows.

According to Morning Consult, “a media and technology company at the intersection of politics, policy, Wall Street, and business strategy,” the satirical newspaper The Onion, which recently ran the headline “Report: Bananas Still Most Popular Fruit For Pretending To Receive Phone Call” is more credible than Infowars, which recently ran the headline “The Shocking Proof That Multiculturalism Has Failed.” No surprise here: The Onion headline is true.

In a shocking upset to conspiracy theorists and screaming men around the globe, 18 percent of people polled considered The Onion (again, the paper put together for laughs) credible, while only 17 percent considered InfoWars credibe. Even more shocking is our new Chief Strategist to the White House Steve Bannon’s former stomping ground, Breitbart, is only considered 19 percent credible. People aren’t just finding white supremacy very helpful these days.

Of course, as the poll points out, this might be affected by the fact that people haven’t heard of Breitbart or Infowars.

“Credibility was significantly lower for far-right sites such as Breitbart and InfoWars, but both were also hampered by being largely unknown. Forty-two percent of people said they “never heard of” Breitbart, and 49 percent said the same about InfoWars. Twenty-six percent said Breitbart was not credible, while 21 percent said the same of InfoWars. Breitbart and InfoWars did better with Republican men, with 32 percent and 27 percent respectively saying the sites were credible.”

You’re still probably better off choosing The Onion. Check out this headline from the other day. Topical!

Facebook, a never-ending source of useful information, has been our goto for up-to-the-minute election coverage this past season. As such, it’s probably caused us more anxiety about this election than any one speech, Wikileaks email, or video featuring Billy Bush. Your Facebook wall feeds into your worst fears about the candidates, and Stephen Colbert knows it.

On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, Colbert took a big swig of cough syrup, dusted off his box of Reynolds wrap, and made a new tinfoil hat to block the radio signals that the Illuminati uses to read our minds. Colbert is full of great intel about such things as the whereabouts of Chumbawumba, the shadowy industry of upstate New York weddings, and what oysters actually are. By the end of it, you’ll have your cork board up and long strands of yarn connecting seemingly disparate items together to prove your theory that, hey, what if the Chicken McNugget is more nugget than chicken?

Check out the video and prepare to have your mind blown.

In 1996, the death of a little girl named JonBenet Ramsey became a highly publicized tragedy. The still unsolved nature of the case has invited a lot of speculation about who really killed her and why. 

Conspiracy theorist Dave Johnson claims that JonBenet Ramsey is, in fact, Katy Perry. In the video he says, "Nobody died, nobody got hurt. That sacrifice was in name only, and that was to get something, and that something was to become a star. JonBenet became Katy Perry, and that's a fact."

Wouldn't that be nice? 

Of course, this doesn't address the fact that Katy Perry is six years older or that Patsy Ramsey, JonBenet's mother, died of ovarian cancer in 2006 and her father remarried. 

Actually, this is all based on the idea that Katy Perry and her parents look kind of like JonBenet Ramsay and her parents. And if you don't examine ANY other facts or think about it too critically, I guess Johnson is right. 

But he probably isn't.

Take a look at this Greek sculpture, notice anything suspicious? What about the woman reading from her LAPTOP? 

That's what some conspiracy theorists have said. Or it could be a rectangular box. Watch this video made by Youtuber StillSpeakingOut and THEN decide if you think the conspiracy is true:

Still think it's just a rectangular box, probably for jewlery? Yea, it probably is. HOWEVER, an alternative theory suggests that if it's not a box and it's not a laptop, it's probably a wax tablet that the Ancient Greeks used for writing all the time.
