Area Woman On Location

Area woman goes behind the scenes at The Onion, gains potentially unique insights: If you enjoy The Onion as much as I do, you won’t want to miss Kathryn S. Wenner’s behind-the-scenes report published today in the American Journalism Review. [How Appealing]

Thanks to Howard Bashman for this pointer. The permanent link to the American Journalism Review article is here. It’s a great read. I absolutely love this quote, submitted by The Onion’s editor as part of their Pulitzer submission (for their coverage of the 9/11 attacks: “Holy Fucking Shit: Attack on America“):

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.  -George Bernard Shaw
