The Onion Speaker Profile: At A Glance

Founded in 1988 in Madison, WI, The Onion has since been awarded the Peabody Award, Thurber Prize for American Humor, and too many Webbys to count. It’s been toasted by such luminaries as Barack Obama, Conan O’Brien, and Bob Odenkirk, who called it "the best comedy writing in the country.” Its been featured on CNN, ABC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Good Morning America, and will soon be the subject of a new documentary produced by Trevor Noah’s Day Zero Productions.

The Onion is the world’s leading news publication, offering highly acclaimed, universally revered coverage of breaking national, international, and local news events. Rising from its humble beginnings as a print newspaper in 1756, The Onion now enjoys a daily readership of 4.3 trillion and has grown into the single most powerful and influential organization in human history.

In addition to maintaining a towering standard of excellence to which the rest of the industry aspires, The Onion supports more than 350,000 full- and part-time journalism jobs in its numerous news bureaus and manual labor camps stationed around the world, and members of its editorial board have served with distinction in an advisory capacity for such nations as China, Syria, Somalia, and the former Soviet Union. On top of its journalistic pursuits, The Onion also owns and operates the majority of the world’s transoceanic shipping lanes, stands on the nation’s leading edge on matters of deforestation and strip mining, and proudly conducts tests on millions of animals daily.

The Onion is now available exclusively online without charge in order to take advantage of various charity tax benefits.
