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:

“My friends and I now own and run The Onion. I’ll be the CEO. We’re keeping the entire staff, bringing back The Onion News Network, and shar[ing] the wealth with staff. Basically, we’re going to let them do whatever they want. Get excited.”

Are you asking me or just deliberately being a dick about a spelling mistake? Don't answer that. It's a rhetorical question.

Nope, as far as I'm aware a motive hasn't been made public. But I'm willing to chalk it up to some people just being miserable jerks.

TBH I never expected the perps to be black. It will quite interesting to unpack their motives and put it into some historical perspective regarding purposeful, inadvertent or ignorant destruction by European colonial invaders in, uh… everywhere else in the world.

Wanna know how I know you only glanced at the picture?

Pfftt, amateur hour. You're not a real capitalist success story until you've hoarded enough wealth to afford hiring a poor person to do your fork-stabbing for you.

Yeah, I used to run into you in r/skeptic a lot, fighting the good fight lol. And we both know the mods of that sub let it be overrun with all types of deniers and insane conspiracy theorists... But at least those trolls put a little more effort into it than just scoffing at experts.

Apparently those brainiacs with their fancy book learnin' and expertise are useless. We must all sift through hundreds of thousands of pages of raw data before reaching any conclusions. The entire concept of career specialization is wrong! Throw it out!

"I'm not a climate change denier but why does anyone care what experts think?!" 🙄

Well, I've been meaning to kick some money toward Voyager for awhile now so this sounds like the perfect time to jump in. Just signed up via patreon.

Yeah, it takes a whole lot of misogyny for a man to look at this dude's actions and statements over decades in the public eye and still arrive at the opinion that Donald fucking Trump respects women.
