Tomorrow night, the “Onion News Network” takes a break from hard-hitting political news stories to turn their cameras on one of their own in one of the most introspective and heart-wrenching stories yet. Frankly, though, they had no choice after a revealing documentary aired on public television telling the world about FactZone anchor’s Brooke Alvarez’s secret life as a Russian child cosmonaut. When the film aired, Brooke was forced to relive the traumatizing experience of being trapped in a space shuttle with a vicious chimpanzee named Mr. Dmitry. It’s a must-see episode of everyone’s favorite news show. …And the possible attempted murder of conservative talk show host Glenn Beck is just gravy.
New episodes of “The Onion News Network” air on IFC on Tuesdays at 10/9c
