Then again, I haven't read the Onion in ages, so I need to **** off. XD

EDIT: I just read the Onion. ._.

Probably. The videos took a dip in quality since they got the TV show, but recently they've returned to form.

No I find them horrible, too. (at least the few that I've seen)

You want real political satire, watch Jon Stewart.

Jon Stewart was funny years ago. Now he's just a pandering doofus.


Remember when Jon used to make points, call people out and actually have a decent conversation with his guests instead of making small talk about their latest movie and playfully avoiding deeper discussions with a lame joke about politics that you've already heard a million times or other late night shows?


I mean, the "style" or format that made the show is still there, but in my opinion a lot of the "substance" is gone.


Although, what the hell do I know about anything? I shouldn't criticize

Jon Stewart is brilliant, the Onion is pretty good. I've never enjoyed their videos much but some of their articles are great.

Sometimes they aren't so good... but seriously, this is great, as are some other articles: http://www.theonion.com/articles/new-study-finds-college-binge-drinking-to-be-a-bla,763/

The Onion is OK. It's got nothing on John Stewart and Steven Colbert though.

I usually read their Facebook posts for a quick shuffle, never really in a position to watch a video in public... But wholeheartedly agree that Onion doesn't even touch Stewart/Colbert

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.

It's a widely held opinion that the US can't do/doesn't understand satire. The onion proves it wrong. Some of it is truly magnificent.

You might still find it horrible, but I think it's safe to say that the Onion never claims to be political satire, it satirizes journalism in general, and I think it often does a pretty good job of it.

Most of its good commentary is about media itself, not all the topics the media covers.
