Besides the lack of citations, doesn't the Onion lampoon everything? --Commodore Guff 20:46, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
I frequently LOL at the Onion, but they don't shy away from mature (well.. not really, but adult-aimed... er... they use naughty words) content. That hasn't be kosher in other spots of CP, but then again it isn't an all-the-time thing at the Onion. Thoughts? Aziraphale 17:19, 16 July 2007 (EDT) <- cries when he reads it...
"The Onion is not intended for readers under the age of 18." Honestly, I don't think it's inappropriate for 15-year olds. DanH 14:07, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
I just changed the sentence that made it seem like The Onion was officially affiliated with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which it never was. To me there's a difference between being a "school newspaper" and a newspaper published by students attending a school. Jinkas 14:11, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
Not inappropriate for 15-year olds!! The Onion frequently features articles mocking Christianity and Christian values, with titles such as "God Diagnosed With Bipolar Disorder" and "Christ Kills Two, Injures Seven In Abortion-Clinic Attack." This article should be amended to reflect the frequent liberal and anti-Christian bias of the Onion. Hermann1359 13:04, 31 January 2008 (EST)
so? people did die in the attack on the clinic, and satire doesn't make something inappropriate for 15 year olds (i mean they swear, and watch horribly violent movies (well i do, and i am much more sheltered then the vast majority of the world)) and are you suggesting that mocking christan values makes it worse than a R rated movie? and from looking at the news page, it seems to be mocking just about everything. from the front page of the website (at the time) all it is mocking politically is pretty much hillary clinton-Greenmeanie 21:15, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
The Onion is balanced
I think the Onion does a balanced job of lampooning both liberals and conservatives.
A few examples of mocking Liberals
