  • The Onion is just on fire lately. They’re figuring out how to do satire again in the worst timeline.

    It’s actually because The Onion was sold to Jeff Lawson (founder of Twilio) at the end of April. He appointed Ben Collins, formerly a senior reporter at NBC News covering “disinformation, extremism and the internet” as the CEO. Here’s what he had to say:
