SPOTLIGHT: Jessica Metzger  
Internship at The Onion

Jessica Metzger, a Communication senior, was lucky enough to intern in the summer with the nationally renowned satirical website, The Onion News Network located in New York City.

She used her background in digital video production to track down and secure video footage to be integrated into daily scripts posted on the websites. Some of the topics that were satirized such as "cigarette smoking can cause homosexuality" called for her scouring the most obscure sources to find footage only to be told “it doesn’t work”.

Frustrating at times, but rewarding, Jess contributed to the daily dark humor.
