    Conspiracy theories, gossip and fake news

    I have a problem with posting Babylon Bee fake news in the Pub section. BB is clearly fake news. When I have crazy stories like “woman with meth in her vagina...” and it is true. It could be misconstrued as fake because I post it in the Pub. I’m forced to put an obviously Pub story in current events because of this.

    Could we change the policy of fake news being posted in the Pub from now on? What is the fake news section for? We have a media and hollywierd for real media pushing fake stories.

    Isn't BB a site for Satire?
    Yep that's why the sleeping Giant of Americans got rid of that thug Obama and his commie hand picked witch Hillary in a pant suit and put in PRESIDENT TRUMP.
    And what gets me is these freaking Libs/Democommie cult members truly believe THEY ARE THE MAJORITY when WE JUST PROVED THEM SO WRONG. I LMAO AT THEM

    Not familiar with BB. The Pub should not be the place. Fake News belongs in fake news.

    Where the heck is Satire? I can't find it. I'd gladly have the Mod move my Babylon Bee thread there.

    How about write the thread title like this when you want to highlight "fake news"...
