Description
  • The Onion is a Peabody Award-winning American "fake news" organization.
  • 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. In addition it runs a non-satirical entertainment section known as The A.V. Club, and a creative services division called Onion Labs. It says 90 percent of its web site readers are between 18 and 44 years old. Since 2007, the organization has published satirical news audio and video online, as the "Onion News Network". Web traffic on theonion.com amounts to an average of 11 million unique visitors per month. 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 or parodying the media's portrayal of news. The Onion's parent company, Onion Inc., also runs an entertainment website called The A.V.
