Congress Threatens to Move A story in The Onion newspaper last month reported that Congress was threatening to move out of Washington unless a new Capitol building was built. Of course, The Onion is a satirical paper, and the story wasn't true. But that didn't stop the Beijing Evening News, which reprinted the story for a huge audience in the Chinese capital. Robert Siegel talks with the editor in chief of The Onion newspaper, whose name is also Robert Siegel.
