Analysis / Bias

In review, Empire News appropriately disclaims they are satire. Typical satire stories are as follows Multiple People Hospitalized, Several Arrested During ‘Rush Limbaugh Has Cancer’ Celebration in Boston, and Trump To Host Massive ‘I Beat Impeachment’ Party at White House This Weekend. While these two examples might indicate they only go after the right, nope, there is this: Michelle Obama Files For Divorce After Shocking Revelation; Barack Obama Admits: ‘I’m Gay!’.
