Analysis / Bias

Gish Gallop clearly states on their about page that they are a satire website: “Please do not sue us. Here’s why. The First Amendment protects parody and satire as a form of free speech and expression. The Gish Gallop uses invented names in all of its stories, except in cases where public figures are being satirized.”

Articles consist of political satire such as this: Trump To Shoot Somebody On Fifth Avenue To Celebrate MLK Day to the silly such as this: Scientists Create World’s First GMO Reverse Dalmatian.
