You are the product The Onion sells to their advertisers. The satirical articles are the bait. Once they’ve reeled you onto their site, they expose you to a plethora of third parties that track and profile you across the web. Among the Alexa Top 500 News sites, ordered by number of trackers, The Onion was one of the worst, coming in 10th with 75 trackers.
In fact, they’re rather good at it.
