    Fact checking by these yahoos is satire in its self.

    Is this a case of Fake doesn't recognize Fake? Surreal.

    Fact-checking comedy and satire ... but unwilling to fact-check real news??

    If you actually read the fact check by USA Today, they always knew and acknowledged The Babylon Bee was a satirical site. The fact check was because some people thought it was real.

    And...?

    The idea that corporate media companies have become santimonious hall monitors is repugnant.

    Oooh, some moron took the Babylon Bee seriously, we better save them. Was the fact checker named Karen?
