U.S.With the Democratic primary debates in full swing, many fact-checking websites are preparing to review candidates statements for accuracy. Thankfully, Snopes, the most unbiased fact-checking website ever, has found a way to expedite their evaluation process.
Since their original founding in 1957 by the KGB, Snopes has gained a reputation for objectively reporting what someones secret motivations probably were, and what they probably really meant when they said something. More recently, they have perfected the art of determining whether a satirical article is hilarious, left-leaning comedy or divisive, conservative-leaning fake news.
As part of their ongoing goal of being able to rush to judgment as quickly as possible, Snopes published a pre-approval of all future statements made by candidates during the Democratic debates.
While we understand there may be some disagreements among progressive candidates on certain issues, we know that nobody who shares our worldview would ever say anything factually untrue, Snopes explains in their article.
Snopes also clarified that in the event a candidate does say anything that sounds untrue/conservative, they will automatically conclude that the individual had pure intentions and meant something completely different. As a very last resort, they may change a particular rating to mixed, assuming some context was missing.
At publishing, Snopes had also released a fact-check for all future statements by President Trump, rating them all as False.
All satire is equal....but some satire is more equal
I used to enjoy getting caught by him.
Now, with the disclaimer, I don’t even read his stuff.
The BB is in a bit of a dispute with Snopes (Snopes wants the BB deplatformed - IOW, run out of business). Good on the BB for really sticking to those fascist Leftists (but I repeat myself) at Snopes.
Kind of like ‘indulgences’ issued by the Catholic Church back in the (?) 1500’s. It made the church very rich.
I don’t know. I posted it in Humor and tagged it as sarcasm. Does that make any difference?
You do realize that Babylon Bee is a satire site? Although Snopes and them are in a legal quandary about that, and the Bee has retrained lawyers to sue Snopes if needed.
It’s possible to retrain lawyers?
I’m looking for Snopes to “debunk” this article shortly.
I meant retain.
Satire is increasingly difficult to discern in clown world.
