The Onion: real fake news or fake real news?

Since 1988 The Onion has cast a satirical gaze on the world of culture and politics, starting life as a print newspaper before moving into the digital sphere.

But as a purveyor of genuine fake news, what does the team think of the current hue and cry from the Trump Administration?

Managing editor Marnie Shure, video director Katy Yeiser and senior writer Dan McGraw are in Sydney for the Antidote Festival and spoke with Nic about the nature of parody and satire in a world where farce is the norm, not the exception.

You can see the team speak at the Antidote festival on Saturday September 2nd at the Sydney Opera House in an event hosted by Craig Reucassel.
