by CBS • 29,338 views

Serena Altschul sits down with Scott Dikkers, editor-in-chief of "The Onion" for a look at the satirical paper's history, favorite targets, and the winning recipe for fake news.

That's my uncle.  :)

@MrBrilliantChaos You got a problem with that? I'm a Call of Duty fan, specifically Modern Warfare. You're a... something else fan. You're just mad because your parents won't let you play CoD.

@erinjones222 except it's more reliable because it brings attention to so many topics that we don't even think about.. it makes you think twice about what's actually going on.

I like the jokes in the Onion, because the Onion makes fun of everybody. I especially liked the Darfur joke in their Onion News Network division.

@bmdshred77 I don't honk that's the reason why...it probably has more to do with Jesus being highly relevent to Americans, but not so much w/Muhammad!
Report spam or abuse
@MrBrilliantChaos Yeah, because every time you play for about 1 hour you lose all your brain cells. You're just a 46 year old who sits in his mom's basement and plays with Pokemon dolls.

This is a Lie onion news is one of the honest news network i have seen, i trust them, they tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth, CBS is just bringing them down because they have a hidden agenda that onion news exposes. Trust me, CBS is plotting on throwing Onion news out of the media stream, since CBS will fall apart when Onion news exposes them, now CBS is using all their resources to silent Onion news. Help Onion news spread the truth the whole truth & nothing but the truth

@ShaithMaster No duh I know that. But Modern Warfare is too good for the Onion. I couldn't care less if you like it or anyone else does but I hate it because it's stupid.

Dikkers is a genius...love his new cartoons.

"In the early days there were a lot of people who took it seriously because they didn't know it...." A look at the comments under their Youtube videos will tell you that people still take it seriously. Sometimes that's almost as funny as their videos and many of the videos amuse me, and I'm rarely truly amused. I think the onion has been a positive influence on my life. If nothing makes you laugh depression isn't far behind.
