The Onion: just as divisive as regular news, now with new book

Posted: Updated:

Everyone's favorite satirical news source, The Onion, is coming out with a brand new book, Our Front Pages: 21 Years of Greatness, Virtue, And Moral Rectitude From America's Finest News Source, just in time for the holidays.


The book shows you vintage Onion, going back to 1988, to the satirical
paper's University of Wisconsin-Madison days, in black and white. With
an introduction by NBC's Brian Williams, funny beyond the anchor desk, Our Front Pages
has timeless headlines like "Panhandler Strike Enters Third Week,"
"Secondhand Smoke Causes Secondhand Coolness," and "War! Come On, Let's
Have One!"

In Walletpop's Big News Podcast, I talked with editor-in-chief, Joe Randazzo, and web and politics editor, Baratunde Thurston
about the political divisions in America today, and stupid people. In
our discussion, you'll find out the do's and don'ts to landing a job at
The Onion. Happy headline writing, y'all!
