Analysis / Bias
In review, Eye of The Tiber clearly disclaims they are satire on the footer of each page with this line: “DISCLAIMER: ALL ARTICLES CONTAINED WITHIN THIS WEBSITE ARE PURE SATIRE!” A sample article headline reads: Catholic Cyborgs Being Developed To Help Fill Churches. In general, this a satire site that pokes fun at the lighter side of Catholicism. Think Father Ted.
