THE ONION: The World of Fake News with Chad Nackers & John Harris

Thursday, 04 Sep 2008 at 8:00 pm – Great Hall, Memorial Union

The Onion editors/writers Chad Nackers and John Harris examine the success of this satirical news source that heckled public officials and mocked traditional media long before the fake news of The Daily Show. They will explain their crackpot coverage of current events, hard-hitting national news stories, in-depth local articles, and engaging opinion columns along with the issues that other publications miss. Part of the National Affairs Series: How Will America Change?
