FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THE ONION REPORTS THE TRUTH

imageCHICAGO, Illinois (The Adobo Chronicles ® ) – In this modern Internet age, one should always exercise critical thinking when reading or listening to the news. That applies to FOX News, CNN, or The Onion.

Yesterday, The Onion reported that its long-time CEO, Steve Hanna,  is stepping down.

And that’s the truth, and nothing but. No, really, even if you’re reading it here on The Adobo Chronicles ® .

THE ONION WINS PULITZER PRIZE

onionNew York, New York – The Pulitzer Prize Board announced today that The Onion has been awarded a 2014 Pulitzer Prize, joining other winners from The Washington Post, Boston Globe, Oregonian and Detroit Free Press  all of which were revealed yesterday.  The board said that it specifically delayed the announcement of the award to The Onion to generate more attention to the new award category of “Amazing News.”

The Pulitzer Prize has been awarding excellence in journalism and the arts since 1917.

Champagne flowed at the undisclosed offices of The Onion as the publisher and editors made the announcement to their staff.

Unlike the other prizes, the category of “Amazing News” is not awarded to a single story, series or work.  Rather, it is an encompassing recognition of “a consistent and trademark news coverage that always catches the attention of readers,” according to the Pulitzer board.
