    Concerning Survey Finds Too Many People Believe Snopes Is A Legitimate Fact-Checking

    U.S.—A troubling new survey released by The Babylon Bee confirmed Wednesday that too many people think Snopes is a real fact-checking website.

    The survey found that over 60% of people believe Snopes is a real website, while only 25% understand that it's satire. The remaining minority thinks that Snopes is the name of a gangsta rapper from California, "one of those guys who makes the hip-hop about the devil's lettuce and shooting people."
    In the study, we went to a Walmart and grabbed random people by the arm and started shouting at them: "HEY, DO YOU THINK SNOPES IS REAL!?" The ones who didn't run away screaming or call for security responded, and of those few dozen people, we got our results. Most said, "Sure, yeah, whatever, please just leave me alone and don't hurt me!" while others said they thought it was satire site. A few people said, "Snopes Dogg? I loved his album, Straight Outta Compton."

    What’s ironic about this is that Snopes, in trying to appear real, has ‘ fact checked ‘ the Bee on a couple of articles, lately, as if Snopes thinks they are the only ones that know the Bee is a satire site, and they have to make sure to point that out.
