The world's most famous satiric newspaper is gearing up for its Washington launch, reports the Washington Post, which will be partnering with the Onion to sell local ads. "We believe that The Onion will be very well-received among young Washingtonians," says the Post Co.'s Christopher Ma, who sees crossover readership potential between the Onion and the Express, the free Post Co. tabloid he helped launch in 2003. Washington will be the Onion's 10th city with paper distribution.
