I think there's also a difference in picking on an adult and a 9 y/o kid.

Interesting that, from what I read, it sounds like the onion has been gutted and moved in the last year, and isn't the folks it used to be.


edit: Link to the onion changes.

They weren't picking on a 9yo, they were picking on the media; the same media who are probably now following their "Onion insults little girl" stories with "5 worst dressed women at the Oscars" and fail to see the irony.

As satire, it was a bit ham-fisted - the c-word seems to be the only non-racial swear word that still offends. It shouldn't have been tweeted in the first place, because it just wasn't that funny.
