The Onion Live – Real Fake News
Time Out says
See the editors and creators of satirical news site The Onion talk about the evolution of satire in this stranger-than-fiction world
Media juggernaut The Onion has been tricking the public for close to 30 years now. Billed as ‘America’s Finest News Source,’ The Onion is, in fact, a satirical news site. Its critique of modern journalism, human behaviour and the way we react to world events has made the site a venerable source for criticism and satire.
Join The Onion’s managing editor Marnie Shure, video director Katy Yeiser and senior writer Dan McGraw for a conversation at the Sydney Opera House as part of Antidote Festival. The team will discuss their process behind coming up with headlines, look back at their favourite stories and divulge the secret to creating satirical news in the era of ‘fake news’.
