From the Onion’s “Message From The Publisher“:
In recent years, the Internet has revolutionized the efficiency with which we can envelop readers in the warm embrace of the advertiser. With new advances in flashing, blinking, and exciting “premercial” technology, this computer-based medium has proved a steadfast source of skyrocketing revenue for Onion Inc. Our advertising-sales staff is continuing to work hard on this frontier.”
Sentiments I feel we can all subscribe to. For what it’s worth, I hate the redesign: it now looks to much like a common-or-garden newspaper website. But then that’s probably the whole point.
