Thanks to Snopes and Facebook we learned that CNN actually doesn’t have a giant washing machine to spin the news before they present it.  They are referring to a satirical article in the Website Babylon Bee–a site that parodies everything.  Wait, what?
Take a deep breath and consider: Snopes devoted investigative energy into telling you that a washing machine for news does not exist.   I am not kidding, people. (Said because kidding or not kidding is sometimes hard to detect).
That’s bad enough, but for Facebook to then issue a threat to punish the Babylon Bee if they did it again is outrageous.
It’s a situation that would be hilarious if it were not so nefarious.
It’s disturbing they can’t take a joke, but it is terrifying they are so in the tank to protect CNN that they can’t see parody.  They fact check jokes?
 Somewhere in the bowels of Snopes and Facebook lurks paranoid and defensive software—an anxiety ridden algorithm combs the earth to prove itself loyal to the left.
As a side note, a study of cult leaders from Jim Jones to David Koresh showed one consistent trait: No sense of humor.
Biased? Of course.  Can you imagine Snopes fact checking Alec Baldwin’s parody of Trump?  It would crash the site.
We are watching the new evolution of censorship.  It’s not blocking information “because we don’t like it”, but “because we don’t like it, we are going to say it’s a lie.”  Not a small difference.  And to reach so far as to attack satire smacks of North Korean neurosis.
Here is an ironic question: Is fun fake news being banned to protect actual fake news?


See below for an update.

Christian satire site The Babylon Bee received a terse warning from Facebook this week after the “independent fact-checkers” at Snopes reported that one of the site’s humor articles was “false.”

Adam Ford, who runs The Babylon Bee, was warned by Facebook that a recent satire article about CNN “contains information disputed by ( an independent fact checker.” Repeat offenders, Ford was told, “will see their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize and advertized [sic] removed.”
