Analysis / Bias
In review, Dunning-Kruger-Times indicates they are a satire on its about page that they are satire: “Everything on this website is fiction. It is not a lie, and it is not fake news because it is not real. If you believe that it is real, you should have your head examined. Any similarities between this site’s pure fantasy and actual people, places, and events are purely coincidental, and all images should be considered altered and satirical. See above if you’re still having an issue with that satire thing.”
In general, stories are designed to trick conservatives into sharing on social media, such as this: Whoopi Attacks Innocent Waitress for Saying “Merry Christmas”
