Analysis / Bias

In review, the Babylon Bee clearly identifies themselves as satire through their tagline. In general, the satire on this website is directed at Christians and Conservatives such as this: Local Man Fires Off Flare Gun Inside Hobby Lobby To Locate Wife, and this Local Christian Squeezes In Quick, Silent Prayer Before Telling Friend, ‘I’m Praying For You.’ They also enjoy poking fun at President Trump: Trump Announces Illegal Immigrant Gladiator Games. On the whole, they would most appeal to a Christian/conservative audience; however, those of a secular bent will also enjoy the irony implied here.

Overall, we rate the Babylon Bee a satire website based on proper identification that generates satirical content based on Christian and conservative politics. (D. Van Zandt 1/21/2017) Updated (11/06/2019)
