SATIRE

These sources exclusively use humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. Primarily these sources are clear that they are satire and do not attempt to deceive. See all Satire sources.

Notes: Politicer proclaims itself as “We are hybrid News/Satire platform to provide the latest and breaking news for for Political, Government, Cultural, and Religion news.” When an article is clicked the website becomes uspoln.com, which is another hybrid News/Satire website. In fact, the websites are identical in appearance and content.

In review, many news articles are satire and some simply republished from factually mixed sources such as theoswatch.com, which is not satire and therefore makes it difficult to tell which stories are true. They also publish known conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Overall, Politicer should be a Questionable source due the blurring of real news and satire, however they do appropriately label their site as  hybrid satire therefore we will classify them as Satire.
