And just what has that to do with" prosecuting the sins of Bush-Cheney era " ?

SORRY; "4 mouths" a Freudian slip. Meant to say 4 months.

Obama does display the capability of speaking out of 4 mouths, all lying to some degree.

"Commentary: Prosecute sins of Bush-Cheney era - CNN****" www dot cnn dot com/2009/POLITICS/05/19/cafferty

ohwiseone - Would that article be from May 19, 2009? Wasn't that waaaaaaay back in time to when Obama had been in office 4 mouths and people really thought he represented "Hope and Change"?

Well, in the 67 months since, we've all been shown how hollow that promise could be. ALL except the Progressive Gutter Snipes.

Nascar , the brainwashed minions of the right are quick to claim anything that is anti-Obama as fact regardless of the source ! They are not worried about the veracity of the quote as long as it aligns to their skewed sense of right and wrong !

I found this page while trying to understand how nationalreport is allowed to be so blatantly deceptive. “Satire” doesn’t seem like the right word. I’m glad that you shared their former disclaimer – because their site definitely doesn’t say anything like that, now. Today, you get:

“*DISCLAIMER: The views expressed by writers on this site are theirs alone and are not reflective of the fine journalistic and editorial integrity of National Report. Advice given is NOT to be construed as professional. If you are in need of professional help, please consult a professional. National Report is not intended for children under the age of 18.”

It’s clear that they want people to think this content is real. And it’s also clear that people are sharing it that way on social networks. A Twitter search for nationalreport**** reveals plenty of people sharing these stories as real news. Dangerous.

You want to believe what National Report reports, have at...I just wouldn't repeat it out loud ;)

Any source that links to The National Report should be considered suspect, unless they are specifically talking about satirical news sites.

Oh, and chances are, none of the ‘journalists’ on the site have actually won any Pulitzer Prizes or Peabody Awards, either.

*EDITOR’S ADDITION – 7/10/2014: Not only are the two Disclaimer pages no longer available, but they’ve actively disallowed Google and other sources from caching any of those old pages.

Instead, you can find a half-assed disclaimer on their legal page. This is likely the bare-bones disclaimer that gets them out of legal trouble while still being able to pass off their “news” as viable, should they need more click-bait.

Correction: There is no active link to a Disclaimer page; however, it does exist*:

*DISCLAIMER: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news.

Fake. Fake. Fake.

(And we really cannot stress this enough.)

In the immortal words of Public Enemy: Can’t Truss It!

Articles on The National Report tend to be a tad more . . . subtle. This ‘gentle’ form of satire parodies real news in a way that seems almost designed with the specific goal of tricking its readers. More to the point, there is no ABOUT or DISCLAIMER section to make it obvious that it’s satire. You actually have to do a bit of digging to find any trace of obvious fakocity. (Well . . . except now, since we’ve done it for you. Oh, and Wikipedia.)

Nascar: your report on the National Report was cut and pasted from Wikipedia. There is some irony in that one.

Commentary: Prosecute sins of Bush-Cheney era~~~~The Bush presidency is thankfully over...but the damage he and Dick Cheney did continues to press on the nerve of the American people like an impacted wisdom tooth. And until the questions surrounding arguably the most arrogant and perhaps most corrupt administration in our history are addressed, the pain won't go away.

Stories from the National Report have been taken seriously by third parties such as Fox News Channel, and the site drew criticism in October 2014 for running a series of fake stories about Ebola outbreaks in the United States,including the false report that the town of Purdon, Texas, has been quarantined after an outbreak. The story led to a traffic spike of two million unique visitors, and although the story was debunked by other websites, the original National Report story received six times as many "shares" on social media sites as the debunking stories did. Craig Silverman of emergent.info sees National Report as one of several websites which are "not driven by trying to do comedy or satire, but by what kind of fake stuff can we spin up to get shares that earn us money". The National Report at one point carried a disclaimer identifying its content as satire, but removed this some time prior to October 2014.

National Report is a fake news website which posts fictional articles related to world events.The website was founded by Allen Montgomery in 2013.

Several fictional stories run by the National Report have been briefly repeated as fact by mainstream news outlets.

A reader recently emailed us to ask if we could check out something they’d run into online -- a story titled, "Obama Announces Plans For A Third Term Presidential Run." As we'll see, it's another case of a satirical article being passed off as real.

In fact, people passing along this story by email appear not to have noticed that it comes from a satire site called National Report.

IQ of 144 you say??...lol
