The Onion Goes Legit

Some of you know that I've talked about starting a blog about fake news for a while. A few years back, I even had semi-serious conversations with media playahs (people with names you've heard!) about what I was dubbing "Romenesko for the Rest of Us." At the time, it seemed that we were in the Renaissance of Fake News, as the culture industry seemed to be obsessed with fakery. But lately it seems we've got a glut of the pseudo, which is why I almost fell for this fake story claiming that The Onion is going to switch to a real news format. Almost. (UPDATE: The Onion's Sunday Magazine parody.)
