Now that falsehoods have become almost entirely indistinguishable from fact in the American news media, the staffers of satirical publication The Onion can sit back and relax, having effectively taken over the industry they set out to spoof.

This is absolutely hilarious. The Onion explains how we Montanans decide what presidential candidate to award our delegates. How do we do it? Well, we 'Slug it out in a bare-chested brawl' of course! Watch the news report inside.
