‘The Onion’ Could be Moving from NYC to Chicago


Beloved fake-newspaper The Onion may be packing up and moving from its home base in New York City all the way to Chicago. The news Tuesday shocked The Onion‘s writers, who were “blindsided” by the decision and, by all accounts, appear to be resisting the unconfirmed move. The announcement followed an internal disagreement over the writers’ proposal that they join the Writers Guild of America in order to receive better pay and benefits. Of course, seeing as how it’s The Onion we’re talking about, this could all be a giant hoax. But somehow, asking talented writers to move 800 miles away or quit just isn’t funny. [via Huffington Post]
