The Onion Ceases Distribution in D.C.Even the fake news is hurting in D.C.

Buzzfeed is reporting that The Onion has ceased distributing its print edition in D.C. and Philadelphia, citing business conditions and longterm viability:

But the news comes at a rocky time for the company. The Atlantic Wire reported Thursday that all but a handful of the paper’s comedy writers are quitting rather than enduring relocation to Chicago in July, the latest chapter in an ongoing consolidation effort intended to lower costs. The paper’s corporate headquarters is located in the Second City.

The Onion has been in D.C. since 2007, when it first started publishing its satirical paper in partnership with the Post. In 2010, there were hints that maybe things weren’t going so well-the local edition of the A.V. Club was shut down. (Last year, there was the unfortunate incident with the fake story about gunfire at the U.S. Capitol.)

The news, as real as it is, comes at a time when other media outlets are similarly hurting. The Post recently announced a new round of staff buyouts, while the City Paper just slashed staff salaries by five percent and is looking for a buyer.
