The New Yorker Acquires The Borowitz Report

By Chris O'Shea Comment

The New Yorker has acquired the satirical news site The Borowitz Report. The site, which is written by Andy Borowitz, is now housed at In announcing the move to the New Yorker, Borowitz says everything will stay the same, and that all topics are fair game, aside from one.

“David Remnick, the editor of The New Yorker, has assured me that I can write whatever I want as long as I don’t make fun of Malcolm Gladwell,” explains Borowitz.

Borowitz’s first column is up this morning. It’s about Mitt Romney releasing the first picture of his running mate. The choice? Rich Uncle Pennybags, from the game Monopoly.
