Calling it “a sad day for fake news and local entertainment coverage,” the New York Press reported today that The Onion is closing the website and trimming the print edition for its acclaimed New York film and entertainment section, “The A.V. Club.” The paper also said that The Onion will cut its city section.
UPDATE: Insiders note that the national presence of The Onion’s A.V. Club will not be affected by the closure of the New York local website. Reviews and features will continue to be published in the New York print edition, but local coverage in the back of the paper will be pared down. More information is available in a post on The Onion website.
