The Onion, a satirical paper based in New York and given away free in dive bars, is denying rumors that it is in negotiations with Viacom, an entertainment company based in New York that doesn’t give away very much for free at all.
This important story broke in Madison, Wisconsin's Capital Times. Unfortunately, our subscription to the Capital Times lapsed, so we didn't hear about this until we read it in DealBook. Andrew Ross Sorkin presumably starts every day reading the news from Madison.
