What’s trending on November 16, 2012?

John Berman and Zoraida Sambolin tell you what’s trending on the web now on “Early Start”.

First: lie to win? The annual World’s Largest Liar Competition is underway in England. Each contestant is given up to five minutes to invent the best lie in the contest, which was founded in honor of a 19th-century inn landlord who was reportedly legendary for slinging the bull. But get this, lawyers and politicians are banned from the contest for having an “unfair advantage.”

And The Onion has declared its sexiest man alive. It’s none other than 29-year-old Kim Jong Un. Of course it is. The Onion says North Korean heartthrob is every woman's dream come true. He’s strong and sturdy and has a cuddly side.

    Surely Eric Erickson's appearance on "Early Start" is related to "World’s Largest Liar Competition". Otherwise CNN is giving free air time to Senate hopefuls that tweet remarks about women that would be unwelcome even in a pro football locker room. I can tune to Fox News to hear women and moderate Republican's trashed on the air. If CNN seeks to give voice to the extreme right, why not a whole show and call it "Extreme Politics" so we can tune out and do something productive. –Terry Fayetteville, NC
