Attempts to put The Onion out of business are happening on a daily basis now. Here’s the latest:

Members of opposing political groups clashed Tuesday inside a so-called “empathy tent” on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley.

At least four people were arrested, police said.

The empathy tent was reportedly in place to offer protesters a calm place to unwind amid the chaos around them. But the tent ultimately offered little respite — and nearly toppled during clashes between conservative students and leftist activists, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Oddly enough, it was a quiet, peaceful night at the local Fight Club. Meanwhile, UC Berkeley administrators will meet today to discuss the creation of super-safe spaces for those seeking shelter from violence at regular safe spaces.

Update:
