No Joke: Babylon Bee Activates Lawyers After NYT Defamation

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Since its inception in March of 2016, the Babylon Bee has made a name for itself as the most hilarious satire website in the known universe – spitting out headlines that would fool only the most abject of morons with no inner monologue, while making the rest of us spit coffee all over our screens.

As the site has risen in popularity (with an estimated 5 million visits per month), liberal 'fact checkers' began smearing the Bee by fact checking obvious satire.

Editor in Chief Kyle Mann responded to one example of this malarkey in an August 2019 Wall Street Journal Op-Ed, after 'fact checking' website Snopes (founded by an alleged embezzler who left his wife for an actual whore) 'debunked' an satirical take on a false claim by Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas, who claimed that a white man in a supermarket told her to "go back to where you came from," only to have a witness later say that never happened.

Here's the Bee's headline:

And here's the galaxy brains at Snopes 'debunking' it:

According to Mann, "Snopes knew this was a joke but questioned our “brand” of satire. The website called us “junk news” and a “ruse.” It accused us of intentionally “muddying the details” of a current event to “fool” people." After some legal pressure, "The scolds at Snopes seemed to comply and removed the worst bits from their piece. But they then rolled out a new rating, “Labeled Satire,” which is meant to suggest that we are somehow making jokes in bad faith."

The left's war on Babylon Bee has continued. In April, Facebook penalized the site for "coordinating harm and promoting crime" after they published a clearly satirical "Guide To Being Prepared For Rioting."

And now, the New York Times -  which actively reported Russia collusion conspiracy theories for three years – has joined the fray called the Bee a "far-right misinformation site" that "sometimes trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire."

Bee owner Seth Dillon responded to the incident in a lengthy Twitter thread that makes clear that for the Bee, defamation is no joking matter (please clap).
