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.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders

The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.

Published

The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.

The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence…

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.

Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.

“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.

Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.

“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.

The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
