I could not believe it when I read the article the BB is making fun of here. How the *expletive deleted*ck stupid are people? The MSM really thinks they can get away with anything.

I vaguely understand the Star Wars reference, but don't know what MSM silliness they are mocking.  Did a quick news search on "23%" and came up blank.  (odd that the BB article didn't show up)

Yesterday our counsel sent a letter to @nytimes demanding a retraction. We took this action because their article was—and remains—defamatory.

In an article about Facebook's difficulty in dealing with satire, the New York Times points to The Babylon Bee as an example of a "far-right misinformation site" that "sometimes trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire."

I think that may be the actual percentage of the vote Biden got in the last election.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

There was an article that reported something like "Of the people who think the country is more united now than under Trump, 87% credit Biden"

Once you dug into the actual numbers, only 23% of respondents believed that the country was more united.

I think this was the article: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/country-optimistic-bidens-1st-100-days-poll/story?id=77440236
It may have been a tweet that focused on the 87% number.
