Babylon Bee Scores a Major Victory Over The New York Times
Not satire.
It seems the NYT got a real Babylon Bee in its bonnet.

The Babylon Bee Scores a Major Victory Over The New York Times
by Tyler O'Neil
June 14, 2021


On Monday, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon announced that The New York Times had agreed to drop its arguably defamatory attack on the Babylon Bee after the Bee sent multiple demand letters threatening a defamation lawsuit. Under the guise of reporting, the Times claimed that the Bee “frequently trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire.” While the Times originally agreed to weaken the attack somewhat, its updated story still suggested that the Bee is one of the “far-right misinformation sites that used ‘satire’ claims to protect their presence on Facebook.”

Yet the Times finally agreed to drop the attacks altogether on Friday.

“Big update here. The New York Times has responded to our demand letter by removing defamatory statements about us from their article. Here’s their email to our counsel notifying us of the correction,” Dillon announced on Twitter Monday.

So The NY Times is mad that the Bee is doing the same thing they are doing but on the right . The New York time is worse because their readers actually believe the BS.

Yet more proof that the NYT is leftist propaganda

Curious if they try and stick it to the onion like this.

it is real.

and there have been, and at least one, lawsuit involved with project veritas.

I bring that up because the judge in that lawsuit flipped the NYT accusations against themselves. it was great.

They literally have the word satire in their masthead.

How can it be misinformation when you're openly saying it's a joke and not factual?

Either they don't understand what the term "satire" means or they don't think the readers understand..

The issue is that we are now living in a clown world, and the jokes that The Bee makes are plausible because Democrats are fricking crazy.
