Spoiler-Alert: We think American News is satire. You read that right: we’re marking American News “satire”. Not just ”fake news”, but honest to goodness satire . . . of a sort. But lest you’re quick to judge and judge us harshly, here us out:

rockcitytimes.com

The tag-line for Rock City Times is “Arkansas’ 2nd most unreliable news source.” Their footer says: “The content on here is presented as fictional news with an intent for humor.” And to drive the point, in that same footer is the link: “Help! I am confused or offended!” which links to the Wikipedia page on satire. The article submitted to…

@RNCSquirrel is a response-Twitter account that acts as a so-called “frenemy” to @HRCsquirrel, itself an insult-Twitter designed as a pre-backlash maker to the prospect of Hilary R Clinton’s presidential run.

From the Rumor Mill News Facebook page: Politically Incorrect News Stranger than Fiction Usually True! This is kinda the same as when someone is going to say something, but they start with, “Not to be an asshole,” or “I’m not racist, but . . . ” and you know they are about to say something assholish or racist. If you…

returnofkings.com

Heavy Caveat: Return of Kings is real, in the respect that the owner is dead-serious about his beliefs. It is, as best we can tell, neither satire nor an example of Poe’s Law. Return of Kings is owned — and likely directly admin’ed — by Daryush Valizadeh, also known as Roosh V and Roosh Vorek, a self-styled “pick-up artist”or [PUA].…

The A.V. Club is owned by The Onion; however, the site is not specifically satirical. They are more of an entertainment news site, though they maintain a decidedly humorous slant. They might have satire in their Comedy section, but it’s not the ‘Gotchya!’ sort of satire. Looking at three random articles: Insane Clown Posse‚Äôs FBI lawsuit thrown out; Juggalos are…

Civic Tribune’s tagline is “Dedicated To The Truth”; however, they’ve at least twice referenced Wyoming Institute of Technology, which we’ve already discussed. As a reminder: There’s no such thing. Either they are satirical, or they are lazy. I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

We’ve mentioned before that we are an English-language site, though we can generally suss out Spanish, German, and Dutch sites. That does limit us and the sort of data we can provide; however, so long as these international sites make it easy to suss…

NBC Claims All Americans Will Be Implanted With Microchips For Obamacare Wrong. theuspatriot.com is full of anti-Obama, anti-progress, anti-Left, anti-Democrat non-news, that either they are being satirical, or they are just being assholes who are pushing wholly incorrect — and already disproved — information. But we’re nice over here at Real or Satire, so we’ll err on the side of…
