Snopes is on a mission to destroy the Babylon Bee for peddling “fake news,” but it seems pretty clear these days that satire is a lot closer to the truth than Real News, Mr. President.
This … is CNN:
Have you ever noticed the popularity of white robots? The reason for these shades of technological white may be racism, according to new research. https://t.co/PHJHO91VtA

Keep in mind that someone actually thought this was a technology angle worth covering.
I'm consistently amazed that a group of people sit in a room, look at subjects and articles like these, and go "yeah, we should publish this. It's hard-hitting stuff." https://t.co/wVjrt2vyNR

The funny thing is, it took two idiots to write this article!

Maybe they should’ve let a robot write it instead.

Many engineers are in Asian countries would their white robots be racist too?

LMAO could you imagine if all the robots that serve humanity were black?

Notice the American flag on the robot's shoulder? How soon do the f*cknuts at CNN call it a "white nationalist" robot? https://t.co/em9CHNY1bd

This is likely the dumbest thing I will read all day. Did they actually pay the author for this or was it a free submission by a high school kid?

Have you ever noticed CNN is flaming garbage?

There’s a reason you are loathed.

Fact check: There are actually multiple reasons. But this is definitely one of them.
