    The Intercept ^ | 01.26.16 | Jon Schwartz
    Many news outlets covered Univision Communications' purchase last week of a stake in The Onion, the world's leading news publication. According to NPR, Univision bought a 40 percent controlling interest in the company, and also acquired the option to buy the remainder of The Onion in the future. But what's gotten no attention at all is that Haim Saban, Hillary Clinton's biggest fan and financial supporter, is Univision's co-owner and chairman. Saban and his wife, Cheryl, are Hillary Clinton's top financial backers, having given $2,046,600 to support her political campaigns and at least $10 million more to the Clinton Foundation,...

    BBC ^ | 4 January 2015 | BBC
    Onions are eaten and grown in more countries than any other vegetable but rarely seem to receive much acclaim. It's time to stop taking the tangy, tear-inducing bulb for granted and give it a round of applause, writes the BBC's Marek Pruszewicz. Deep in the archives of Yale University's Babylonian Collection lie three small clay tablets with a particular claim to fame - they are the oldest known cookery books. Covered in minute cuneiform writing, they did not give-up their secrets until 1985, nearly 4,000 years after they were written. The French Assyriologist and gourmet cook Jean Bottero - a...

  • Rubio: We need to legalize immigrants so they can pay for border security

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/13/13 | Byron York
    Why is it necessary to legalize the roughly 11 million currently-illegal immigrants in the U.S. before newly enhanced border security and internal enforcement measures are in place? Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Senates Gang of Eight, says part of the reason is that the federal government cant afford to secure the border on its own and needs financial help from the immigrants themselves, in the form of fines paid when they are legalized. Rubio made the statement during a radio interview after he voted against an amendment from Republican Sen. Charles Grassley that would have put off...

    Wealthy filmmaker Michael Moore and Rainn Wilson, an actor best known for his role in the American version of "The Office," referenced a parody article at The Onion in tweets on Wednesday, duping a number of their followers, Twitchy reported. "NRA Sets 1,000 Killed In School Shooting As Amount It Would Take For Them To Reconsider Much Of Anything," Wilson tweeted, without mentioning the source of the article. He did provide a link to it, however. Twitchy said that if Wilson knows The Onion is a parody site, he's not admitting it. "[W]ow, just wow. I don't know what else...

    The Israeli Embassy in the U.S. had a field day after the Iranian state-run Fars News Agency used a made up report by the satirical news site The Onion, and passed it off as what they presumed to be real. The fake report stated that a new Gallup poll showed that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was overwhelming preferred over President Obama by rural white Americans. The Onion headline, Gallup Poll: Rural Whites Prefer Ahmadinejad to Obama, was immediately picked up by Fars and hours later the news agency ran an identical story. The Israeli Embassy found this all too amusing,...

    The Onion is a well known parody site that posts fake headlines intended to amuse the reader. But liberals actually believed the site when it posted a headline proclaiming that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said she was relieved that not a single American died" in the tragic shooting at a Wisconsin Sikh temple, Twitchy reported Monday. "Unbelievable," tweeted Ana Luiza Farias. "What a cruel, evil thing to say!" another tweeted. "This saddens & disgusts me," said another. "Michele Bachman is one ignorant broad (sic)," another tweeted, while suggesting Bachmann be slapped. Others called Bachmann stupid, while at least one compared...

    The paper of record has been punked by the paper of parody. The New York Times' April 17 mini-retrospective on the "original teen-girl tabloid," Tiger Beat, included a sampling of the magazine's covers throughout the years. But as the Times learned the hard way, one of those things was not like the others. The cover in question, seen at right, pairs teen pop trio the Jonas Brothers alongside President Obama proclaiming: "I Sing in the Shower." The problem is, no such issue of Tiger Beat actually exists, which prompted the Times to issue a rather embarrassing erratum in this past...

    With National Public Radio in danger of losing its federal funding and former top official saying Tea Party people are racist, racist, NPR board member Sue Schardt recently said the organization had unwittingly cultivated a core audience that is predominately white, liberal, highly educated, elite. As Instapundit says, Im not so sure it was all that unwitting. Indeed, NPRs obsession with super-serving the core listeners has long been a source of parody. From The Onion archives: This American Life Completes Documentation Of Liberal, Upper-Middle-Class Existence Producers of the long-running Chicago Public Radio program This American Life announced Monday that they...

    The Onion, the United States oldest and most revered satirical newspaper, first published in 1756, has announced that they will close their website and cease all publishing activities, effective immediately. Said the owner, "No more satire is possible. Nothing can beat the outrageousness of what comes out of Washington today. In a sentence: We are plum out of satire." Satirical headlines planned by The Onion, such as "Pelosi: Pass Health Care To Find Out What Is In It", "Major Tax Increases To Reverse Recession", and "Obama Bows To Communist Leader", have been superceded by actual news headlines, causing these satirical...

    In yet another sign that the line between real news and fake news is getting thinner, one of CNNs main anchors during the 1980s and 1990s, Bobbie Battista, has taken a step through the looking glass and can now be seen anchoring reports online for ONN, The Onion News Network. In the report below, Pragues Franz Kafka International Named Worlds Most Alienating Airport, Ms. Battista reports the fictional news with the same aplomb she brought to the real thing during her 20-year career at CNN: In a recent interview with the blog CNN Observations, Ms. Battista said she enjoyed the...
