(Newser) – Remember the time Barack Obama graced the cover of Tiger Beat magazine accompanied by the news that he had won the "slumber party" vote? Oh, wait a minute, that was a "news" story published by the Onion. Apparently, someone forgot to tell the New York Times, which included the mock cover image in a recent article profiling the history of the teen-girl tabloid. Gawker caught the Times' embarrassing correction yesterday.
