The Onion on Zoom

Since the news broke about Zoom and all its privacy-related scandals, it was just a question of days before The Onion decides to hit. After a gentle first piece, they went all in, and it was worth all the wait:

Settling in for another day at the helm of his booming telecommunication empire, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan reportedly reclined in his chair Thursday to watch the massive wall of screens in his office that continuously displays 10 million live video feeds from his company’s platform.

On that gentle piece from last week, part of the Opinion section, where fake people quotes are associated with real news:

I expected so much more from this service I hadn’t heard of until three weeks ago.”

The Onion is not only my favourite satirical news site, it is my favourite site on the internet.
