I’ve often said these are hard times for satirists. No sooner do you create something way too exaggerated to be true, than some leftid ninny actually says it or does it.
A Christian satire site, The Babylon Bee, made satirical fun of CNN, reporting that the nooze giant “purchased an industrial-sized washing machine to help its journalists and news anchors spin the news before publication” (https://hotair.com/archives/2018/03/02/facebook-snopes-come-hard-satire-site/).
Because leftids have no sense of humor, some of them complained to Facebook, which went to its go-to fact-checker… Snopes, another nest of leftids. Snopes flagged the satire as “fake news,” genuinely intended to deceive, and Facebook issued the Bee a stern warning–
Which had to be withdrawn as soon as someone realized the “fake news” was, in fact, a satire. And Facebook apologized for the “mistake” and rescinded the warning.
Why are there suddenly so many censorship “mistakes” being made by the social media?
And why are all of them made exclusively at the expense of conservatives? Why do these guys never make a “mistake” that censors leftids?
And why can’t these muttonheads recognize satire when they see it?
