Private: Levin on The Onion

Tremble explores the longstanding genius of The Onion and Mr. Show, arguing that both get it right because they have immersed themselves fully in the material they parody.

The discussion concludes with the provocative argument that The Onion has become a pale imitation of its former self.

(Dissatisfaction with The Onion appears to be on the rise. Last week I mentioned Jeff Koyen’s charge that the paper “keeps fucking up.” I don’t see it, but then I don’t read The Onion every week.)
