* JumpingTheShark: In 2016, Univision, the head of whom is a major UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton donor, bought The Onion. In February, the article "[[http://www.theonion.com/article/female-presidential-candidate-who-was-united-state-52367 Female Presidential Candidate Who Was United States Senator, Secretary Of State Told To Be More Inspiring]]" read more like a Clinton puff piece than a satirical article. A lot of left-wing critics of Clinton are [[https://theintercept.com/2016/01/26/ha-ha-hillary-clintons-top-financial-supporter-now-controls-the-onion/ calling time]] on The Onion for this move as it seems to be affecting editorial policy.

\n\n* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The articles that are written in the wake of mass shootings in the U.S. point out that America is the only country where these shootings have become routine and nobody seems to have the political will to do anything about it.

* DudeNotFunny: A lot of articles can get this reaction. Specific examples include:
** An ''Onion'' tweet on February 24, 2013 (UsefulNotes/AcademyAwardsCeremonies night) called 9-year-old Best Actress nominee Quvenzhane Wallis a ''very'' [[CountryMatters rude word]], claiming that everyone else was afraid to admit she was one. It was a parody of all the insinuations and nasty comments on social media that Wallis was being a brat at the Oscars, taken ''way'' too far. The response on Website/{{Twitter}} was ''huge'' and ''angry'', resulting in a sincere apology, the first ever in the Onion's history. Unfortunately, the tweet also led to [[BlameGame a lot of]] [[MisBlamed misdirected finger pointing]] at the staff of The AV Club, who had nothing to do with the tweet, and were effectively only chosen because they're slightly more visible than the more anonymous writers for ''The Onion'' -- they're also effectively completely separate operations, right down to not even having offices in the same ''state''. One blogger's demands that The AV Club's film editor ''also'' apologize for the tweet resulted in a groundswell of support for the site from the critic community.
