City Paper is not for tourists
Good news for area men: Though The Onion is bagging its print operations in San Francisco and Los Angeles, it’s motoring right along here in D.C. and will keep on printing. It has a 50,000 circulation in town, according to its media kit—-a level that’s 20,000 short of its volume in New York and Chicago.
From an Onion memo:
We love our print publications. They are the foundation of the Onion and, in the majority of our markets, they make us money. We have no plans at this time to cease publication in any of our other markets.
