The Creator of the universe sits down for an intimate, eye-opening interview – and lets the Mainstream Media know how he thinks they’re doing.
The Onion is an American digital media company and news satire organization. It runs an entertainment website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news. It also runs a non-satirical entertainment section known as The A.V. Club. Since 2007, the organization has published satirical news audio and video online, as the “Onion News Network”.
The Onion?’?s articles comment on current events, both real and fictional. It parodies traditional news websites with stories, editorials, op-ed pieces, and man-in-the-street interviews, using a traditional news website layout and an editorial voice modeled after that of the Associated Press. Its humor often depends on presenting mundane, everyday events as newsworthy, surreal or alarming.
The Onion’s parent company, Onion Inc., also runs an entertainment website called The A.V. Club that features interviews and reviews of various newly released media, as well as other weekly features. The online incarnation of The A.V. Club has its own domain, includes its own regular features, blogs and reader forums, and presents itself as a separate entity from The Onion itself.
In 2013, Onion Inc. launched Onion Labs, an advertising agency.
Originally a print publication, The Onion launched its website in 1996. It ceased publishing print editions in December 2013.
