Here's a story considerably more contemporaneous than yours. Now, it IS a Fox production and I'm sure you will avoid it like the plague. But, maybe, some of your fellow Obama Water Haulers WILL view it and may come to the conclusion of just how far off base you are.

"Charles Krauthammer on Obama's 'immense' executive overreach"

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.

You want to try that again greek , it was just a bunch of right-wing jibberish !

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.)
