The Onion Sold To Univision

According to NPR, The Onion has been sold Univision Communications. Damn it, thanks to all those years of reading the The Onion, I don't know whether to believe this story or not.

Univision Communications Inc., the parent company to the nation's leading Spanish-language broadcast channel, has acquired a controlling stake in the satirical news site The Onion, NPR has learned. The agreement between two seemingly disparate media outfits was described to NPR by a person with direct involvement in the negotiations. A second person who was briefed on the deal by Univision executives also confirmed its broad strokes. The amount of money involved in the deal was not disclosed.
