Real or Satire

Although The American Tribune homepage still has an ABOUT menu item, it’s a completely dead-link. theamericantribune.org/about or theamericantribune.org/about-us go to 404-error pages. Fortunately, their original About disclaimer was put up on http://archive.is/sYRvn: Satire sites are likely dropping in ad revenue, so we’ll likely see a lot of sites taking off their “satire” disclaimers.

No one should look to Occupy Democrats for unbiased news reporting. Calling them 'bias' is like calling the Moon the Earth's only permanent natural satellite. But how should they be categorized?

Business Insider has an interesting piece on how liberal or conservative other news agencies are — or, specifically, the audiences of the agency. They are often accused of leaning left; however, looking at their front page on 12-6-2016, it seems fairly balanced to us. http://www.businessinsider.com/turkey-syria-talks-ankara-2016-12 ‘The US is totally out of these [Turkey-Syria Peace] talks, and they’re pretty angry about…

COINTELPRO used tactics against these targets that ranged from illegal wiretaps, planting forged documents, and spreading…

On first glance, most of the headlines used over at The Free Thought Project seem designed to incite a certain emotion, mostly indignant anger — which is reason enough to give us pause on TFTP. We're not sure how to categorize this site, just yet. The issues they write about are complex, but real. We just have this nagging feeling that there's something else going on. Bias? Probably.

The Babylon Bee wears its satire on its sleeve, making no attempt to hide its satirical intentions. The site is refreshingly funny, as well, and comes recommended to those who are not easily offended.

We actually rather enjoy Heavier Metal — and not simply because Metal has a fond place in our hearts. The satire here has plenty of the stuff other 'satire' sites lack: humor.

Any site whose abbreviation is, basically, BS News should be immediately suspect; however, we don't really need to second-guess their intent.
