Say you were to write a satirical news story, something in the vein of the onion, at what point does it become libel? Just as an example, if you wanted to do a fake interview with Obama, and you had Obama say something like "Yeah, we really need to work harder to destroy the white class," (my example is truly just a whim off the top of my head with little thought) what are the concerns with it being taken as a factual source, or some such thing? I want to do a satire piece involving a well-known movie director, but am not sure where the line is drawn. Does it simply have to be obviously a satire piece? With The Onion, they are at least well-known enough that people tend to know they are satire, but that may not always be the case. Just looking for input, thanks.
