Liberals don’t have much of a sense of humor… or maybe it’s simply that they’re straight up retarded.
Christian satire site The Babylon Bee received a terse warning from Facebook this week after the “independent fact-checkers” at Snopes reported that one of the site’s humor articles was “false.”
Adam Ford, who runs The Babylon Bee, was warned by Facebook that a recent satire article about CNN “contains information disputed by (Snopes.com) an independent fact checker.” Repeat offenders, Ford was told, “will see their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize and advertized [sic] removed.”
The story in question pokes fun at CNN with the headline: “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication.” Anyone with even a sliver of a funny bone tucked away behind their appendix would know that it wasn’t a serious news piece, but, alas, the humorless dolts at Snopes had to spell out the obvious.
Claim: CNN invested in an industrial-sized washing machine to help their journalists and news anchors spin the news before publication.
“Although it should have been obvious that the Babylon Bee piece was just a spoof of the ongoing political brouhaha over alleged news media ‘bias’ and ‘fake news,'” Snopes explained, “some readers missed that aspect of the article and interpreted it literally.”
Facebook has backpedaled already and claimed this was a mistake but how stupid do you get? Stupid in threatening a satire site. Stupid in that anyone out there would have believed that news was being washed in an actual washing machine.
Of course we all know, however, that the Babylon Bee is totally correct about CNN’s other machines:
At publishing time, CNN had also purchased an industrial-sized trash compactor in order to help compress and distort facts to fit into its preconceived narrative.
