He's doing something now which is exactly like the Onion headlines.

I know it ain't him stealing it, it's his writers but they don't even try to mask it.

Where Jay reads the funny (but real) newspaper headlines?

He's been doing that now for years.

No, not that. He will literally cut to two fake newscasters where they read Onion-like headlines.

You know, "Scientists find stab wounds may kill monkeys." That type of thing.

Is sort of thing exclusive to "The Onion" or did they just make it famous?

He used to play the Onion Radio News all the time, presumably because he likes it, or they pay him to, or because he needs filler.
