The first two-thirds of the presentation was great, but of course it was essentially examples from The Onion itself. Once the evening turned to Q&A's, it wasn't that interesting or informative.

Description

Deadpan satire and journalistic skill collide in the phenomenon that is The Onion. Founded in 1988 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the “fake news” newspaper is the notable precursor to such biting, faux-news programs as _ The Daily Show_ and _The Colbert Report. _

Last year, The Onion News Network, an online send-up of 24-hour cable TV news, was named a Peabody Award winner and praised as “hilarious, trenchant and not infrequently hard to distinguish from the real thing.” Join current Onion editor Joe Randazzo and fellow staffers for a multimedia discussion on the state of media, politics and pop culture as they offer up insight into how the paper’s culture-skewering stories and hilarious headlines are created.
