Onion satire is fairly complex. Most satire is, given the requirement to poke at enough dimensions to hook the reader.

I should not have assumed that because of the subject you would know what I was asking.

What do you think about this:

I guess I’m not tracking. That story/headline is from the Onion (via Armstrong). It’s satire/a spoof article. Maybe I’m missing what you are asking?

You didn’t ask me, but I find it funny because it’s a nod to the realization that some corporations are probably more powerful than even the US govt. A secondary nervous chuckle comes from the sense that our govt institutions are straining at the seams due to internal strife and general lack of coherence of value sets. So yeah, it’s funny in a horrifying way.

I’d say St. 2 max, if you are just trying to code the headline. 100 things wrong with it once you apply some systemic logic to it.
