Satirical websites have begun to pop-up all over the internet.

Americans have become gullible and naive when exposed to the fake-truth.

Popular news sites include the Onion, which is known to fool factual websites such as The Washington Post and even myself. Satirical websites tend to mislead users and allow for many misconceptions.
