Snopes Fact Checks Babylon Bee Again

Supposed Internet fact checker Snopes fact checked Christian satire website The Babylon Bee yesterday for their comical article suggesting “Empire” actor and alleged hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett was hired by CNN after “fabricating [a] news story out of thin air.”

Snopes rated the Babylon Bee as “False” for their satirical reporting of Jussie Smollett receiving a job at CNN after the details surrounding his alleged hate hoax came forward, writing that that “This was not a genuine news story, although some readers mistook it for such.”

For reference, the Babylon Bee website’s slogan is “The Babylon Bee is Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire.”

Roundly mocking the development, Babylon Bee responded with another satirical article, this time with the headline “Snopes Rates Babylon Bee World’s Most Accurate News Source” the following day.

From the Babylon Bee satire piece:

After reviewing over 1,200 of the Bee’s articles, opinion pieces, and exclusive news stories published over the site’s eighteen months of existence, the Snopes team all agreed that the Bee was “far more accurate” than competing news sources.

“It’s not even close,” Snopes writer Kim LaCapria wrote as part of the announcement. “Whereas sites like CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are constantly dropping the ball, The Babylon Bee has never gotten a single fact wrong.”

Snopes previously fact checked Babylon Bee several times in 2018, eventually sparking a massive social media backlash after Snopes fact checked the satirical website’s article declaring “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication”.

The Internet fact checker apparently felt it was vital to inform readers that CNN did not, in fact, purchase a washing machine to write the news.

Big League Politics reported last year:

Now that the election is over, it seems that they have enough extra time on their hands to fact check Christian satire website, Babylon Bee. Any reasonable person who takes a cursory glance at the site will see the satire, but Snopes still finds it necessary to fact check them.

Perhaps their most ridiculous fact check was on an article where Babylon Bee claimed that CNN purchased an “industrial sized washing machine” so they could spin news. Most people would find the article hilarious, despite being fake, but Snopes instead found it important to make it known that the claim was false.

Snopes also fact checked an article where Babylon Bee claimed that Planned Parenthood defended Bill Cosby, because “sexual assault is only 3% of what he does.” The satirical article was obviously poking fun at Planned Parenthood, who claims that abortion is only 3% of what they do.

Apparently Snopes feels the integrity of the Internet’s ability to discuss facts is in grave danger due to Christian satire.

CNN Pretty Boy Don Lemon Lumps All Trump Voters Together with Klansmen and Neo-Nazis in Vicious Rant

How on earth does this man have his own TV show?

Published

on

On CNN Wednesday night, Don Lemon disparaged every single Trump voter by saying that they’re part of the same crowd as Klansmen and neo-Nazis.

In the transition from his show to Lemon’s, Chris Cuomo posed to Lemon a devil’s advocate position that “you can’t say everybody who voted for Trump is like the people who who went into the Capitol.” Lemon responded thus:

“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you’re on. I’m never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi side. Principled people who are conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as ‘less than,’ that says that your fellow Americans should not exist, that says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or that sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry.

Cuomo jumps in to continue playing devil’s advocate: “And if they say, ‘I don’t agree with those people, I just like Trump’s policies’?”

“Then get out the crowd with them,” Lemon says. “Get out of the crowd.”

Cuomo then retorts, again pretending to represent the other side: “‘I wasn’t in the crowd, I just voted for Trump.'”

Lemon replied: “You’re in the crowd who voted for Trump. If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers, took the lives of police officers, took the innocent lives who were there on the Capitol that day. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.

Quite the incoherent rant, don’t you think? For one, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are by and large not Trump supporters. Even if some were at one point, they were among the quickest to turn on Trump, for they realized that he was not and was never going to be Hitler 2.0. Plus, none of those who breached the Capitol were found to be members of the Klan or a neo-Nazi group. So there goes the thrust of Lemon’s argument.

Lemon also claims, without evidence, that Trump “incited” violence and encouraged his supporters to breach the Capitol. Even if you disapprove of Trump’s rhetoric, you cannot admit in good faith that he incited or encouraged any illegal activity.

Someone like Lemon should not be on TV. He is extraordinarily divisive and full of contempt for 75 million Americans.
