Product Description

The color Kindle edition of The Onion is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your Android device. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

The Onion is America's Finest News Source. It is the last bastion of unbiased, reliable, and definitive news in a world dominated by superficiality, mediocrity, and non-Onion news outlets. Founded in 1756, when Friedrich Siegfried Zweibel, an immigrant tuber-farmer from Prussia, shrewdly bartered a sack of yams for a second-hand printing press and named his fledgling newspaper The Mercantile Onion after the only words of English that he knew. Since then, The Onion has expanded into an omnipotent news empire complete with a 24-hour broadcast news division (The Onion News Network) and wildly successful website, TheOnion.com. It is a 10-time Webby Award winner, and ONN is a 2009 recipient of a Peabody Award for its online video broadcasts. Today, The Onion misinforms more than 7 million readers in print and online each month.

The Onion will be released on the Kindle every Thursday afternoon (Eastern Time) along with its sister publication, The AV Club, which explores the best and worst of film, television, music, books and games.

The Onion is a great source of humour often poking fun at current events or - if news is lacking - making up their own stories. Each week there is a new selection of articles broken up into various sections.
As an added bonus there is a section of reviews for new music, films, books and video games. These are all written in much the same style as the rest of the paper just with a little more opinion and truth thrown in.
The only problems I see with this newspaper are the fact that it is American (sports news is all about the NFL, NBA etc) and the fact that some people might mistake it for real news as it is so well written!
All in all I am in love with The Onion and will be continuing my subscription for the forseable future.

I don't read the Onion often but I do enjoy their podcasts and visit the website. I enjoyed the content that I could access and it was I as expected from the Onion.

I have to say I don't like the format of the newspaper on the kindle at all. Keep track of articles across pages can be hard. Many articles empty or just titles. (That's the kindle right? Not the onion trying to be funny). I found it hard to browse pages and use the index. Title run across pages. Having the content is not enough when compared to other sources for the onion. Sorry Maybe it's all too soon for the kindle and Newspapers.

Despite the price I cancelled after one issue until I hear better.

I subscribed to the Onion on my Kindle because I had enjoyed the on-line version for many years, but recently they have been trying to make it a pay-to-view site. The first issue sent to my Kindle (as a one-off, not subscription) was full of jokes, news, reviews etc.
As soon as I subscribed, the issues I have been sent have lost either 90% or all of the humour, and just consist of interminable reviews for American TV shows.
Plus the downloads are very unstable and keep crashing the Kindle.
I'll give them a couple more issues (perhaps things are slack around Xmas) and if the humour content doesn't return to something approaching the original one-off issue I downloaded, then I'll cancel the subscription and get the occasional one-off.
I have to say, giving a full issue as a one-off, but a much truncated version for subscription holders seems a very cynical move to me.

I was disappointed with this. I still haven't received any onions and my wife is beginning to give me a lot of grief. We have gone many meals now without onions and if this continues further I will complain. On the plus side I am feeling I probably don't need onions in every meal, but that doesn't mean to say a company can get away with charging for monthly onions without delivering the goods. I should probably stop paying for this so called service.

Overall, 5 stars.

The Onion isn't really well known this side of the Atlantic, but it's a great "newspaper" full of spoof news stories. When I'm ever in the States I will try and pick up a copy, it can be hard to get as it's free, the copies go very quickly. As others have said, like many newspapers, the format isn't great on a Kindle but it doesn't take away much from the actual articles.

As another reviewer pointed it, it's written by Americans for Americans, so natuarally all the "sports news" is about American sports.

Highly recommended if you like satire.

The ONION has to be one of the best things on the planet . It can be so funny that a giggle is not enough , though saying that as it is american it can lose me as people can be not understood who are not notable here in europe . Overall it is laughable .

For many years, The Onion has proved that America can indeed produce fine satire. At its best, readers don't even realise they're being fooled - such is the fine line between today's reporting styles and a spoof at its best. Completely in touch with The World of Today, I cannot recommend The Onion more highly. To my mind, there is rarely any publisher and set of writers so consistently excellent and, moreover, funny!
