DAVID ADESNIK CRITIQUES THE ONION: “In the final analysis, the skewered vision of American politics presented by The Onion may be clever, but instead of educating its audience, it reinforces misleading stereotypes that embittered elitists use to justify their pessimism about America’s thriving democracy.”

I just wish they were funnier.

UPDATE: Ed Cone calls Adesnik “humourless,” but does not attempt to argue that The Onion is especially funny anymore. I mean, they still get a chuckle now and then, but they’re no Scrappleface. Heck, they’re not even Jeff Goldstein.

Well, maybe occasionally.
