This could be the dumbest fact check of all time from Snopes, and that’s saying something: “Did a Brave Millennial Sell His Testicles to Raise Money for Bernie’s 2020 Campaign?”

Answer: FALSE. (DUH!)
This was not a genuine news story, as the NPC Daily is a satirical website that does not publish factual items. A disclaimer on the website’s “About” page states that “NPC Daily is a satire site, providing political and cultural commentary with wanton sarcasm. NPC Daily pokes fun of modern journalism and liberalism. If you believe one of our articles is real, it’s because the content is not too far adrift from what is published by mainstream news outlets. But, alas, our content is totally fictitious and is created to elicit laughs and bemusement.”
Why do they keep doing fact-checking articles nobody thinks are real, especially one with easy-to-find disclaimers?
