Analysis / Bias

In review, The Daily Squib is a hybrid satire website meaning some stories are true, though with a healthy dose of humor and/or sarcasm thrown in. For example, this is a story contains biting sarcasm What Lockdown: 100,000 Flights into UK Per Week. Other stories take a true event and use made up commentary such as this Creepy Uncle Joe Endorsed by Obama. In general, The Daily Squib disclaims they are a satire site on every page with this statement “The Daily Squib is a curious satirical parody newspaper offering breaking news, political satire, comedy, opinion, and celebrity news.”
