Link roundup

1. "Los Angeles will pay more than $24 million to two men who were wrongfully convicted and spent decades behind bars before being freed"

2. Poor sportsmanship demonstrated by young wrestler.

3. "The [Onion] just agreed to sell a chunk of itself (as well as sister properties including ClickHole and The A.V. Club) to Spanish broadcaster Univision Communications."

The reported price tag of about $200 million for a 40 percent stake in the Onion's parent company values the whole enterprise in the range of $500 million.
To put that in perspective, it's twice what Jeff Bezos paid for the Washington Post in 2013.
