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.

“I feel like they are a waste of time and cause others to rethink their own knowledge,” said Holland McClary, sophomore.

People tend to believe everything they see on the internet. Websites like the Onion prove the argument that many things in cyberspace are misleading. Make sure you are aware of when an article, or online publication, could be satirical, or not credible.

Watch out because satire is everywhere!
