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!’.
Overall, Empire News is a website that appropriately disclaims they are satire. (8/9/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 6/11/2020)
