“I thought I can help [Trump] to win the presidency by creating a website. So I created endingthefed.com. I feel sorry for posting some ‘fake’ news. I removed them but at that time, I didn’t really know about them being fake.”

thedailymeal.com -

According to their About Page, the The Daily Meal was founded by a former CEO of Forbes.com, Jim Spanfeller. The site covers culinary topics with their articles, videos, and special reports. Not sure why anyone would think a recipe for Spicy Vegetarian Chili Recipe would be satirical. I don’t think The Daily Meal is being ironic when they call it…



nydailynews.com -

NY Daily News does contain a lot of clearly marked op-ed pieces. And they definitely lean towards one end of the political spectrum. They can, however, be considered real. Be sure to check the originating section of the article before resharing or determining any truth-value. Addendum 11-22-2016: Since this post, we’ve updated our review system to include the categories ClickBait,…

ObjectiveMinistries.org once had an article about kangaroos existing in the Middle East. It’s satire; in particular, Poe’s Law. They even go on a tirade against another parody/satire site, Landover Baptist Church. This site hasn’t been updated in awhile.

If there's some sort of civil unrest, impending cataclysm, or upcoming plague, NaturalNews.com is selling something for it. But are they real, satire, or something worse?



spreadingromney.com -

I mean . . . it’s real. He really did that shit (pun intended). You can read tonnes of stuff about this site. Definitely real.



jefferly.com -

I must confess: I have a soft spot for jefferly.com. Expect funny observations about life, reposts of funny webcomics, and commentaries on U.S. political goings-on. We mark this one “Bias” because, well . . . he has one. So expect a fair bit of color.

UPDATED REVIEW 1-12-2017: Our previous review of If You Only News came when we had a simple binary ranking system. Our conclusion has been updated to match the new system. You’ll be seeing a lot of updated reviews as we continue to comb through the database. They’ve routinely used ClickBait-style headlines and some information “massaging” to prop up their anti-GOP…



betootaadvocate.com -

Betoota is a small town in Diamantina Shire, in the Channel Country of Central West Queensland, Australia. Betoota Advocate, however, still has some Lorem Ipsum text on it. I’m assuming it’s not real. Now whether it’s pure gossip or satire is a question for another day. Since we don’t have bullshit category, we’re gonna mark this one “satire.”



foxnews.com -

While they may be biased much of the time (because they are), Fox News is considered a real, legitimate news source. You’re advised to take every news article shared from their site with a grain of salt and try and find additional sources for the same story — preferably one that doesn’t cite Fox News.



occupydemocrats.com -

No one should look to occupydemocrats.com for unbiased news reporting — it's in the name, after all. Calling them 'bias' is like calling our sun the closest star to Earth.



conservapedia.com -

It’s hard to categorize this one. Conservapedia is a wiki-encyclopedia project with an extremely far-Right agenda/slant. Their goal is to counter the “liberal bias” of the media in general and Wikipedia specifically. So it’s hard to consider it “real news” because of it. Though it’s definitely not satire. One of the interesting editorial requirements (or requests) from Conservapedia is that…

avclub.com -

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’s FBI lawsuit thrown out; Juggalos are…
