Since its founding by a Prussian tuber farmer in 1756, The Onion has attracted millions of loyal fans drawn to its fearless reporting and scathing commentary on world events, human behavior, and journalistic convention. Its omnipotent news empire now includes the Peabody Award-winning Onion News Network video wing and multiple best-selling books. In a rare peek behind the scenes of America’s Finest News Source, the core writing staff of The Onion will gather for a discussion focusing on how the world’s most popular satirical news is created and how the publication has evolved over the years before fielding questions from any of the slobbering dopes in attendance.
