Analysis / Bias

In review, The Science Post produces satirical news articles on health, science, and politics. A sample article reads COVID-19 officially endorses Donald Trump for President. However, some articles are based on real news stories that then add a satirical twist such as this New law makes it legal for atheist doctors and nurses to refuse care to religious patients. In general, this is a satire website that clearly labels their intentions.
