                                            Satire Website TRAP For Conservatives     
                                                           I fell for it. Don't you.


NationalReport.net is a satire website that has removed its admission as such from its website disclaimer. And that's not even the worst of it. If you find out and attempt to post a follow-up comment, letting it be known that you did not know the article you were commenting on was a fake, the site will not approve that follow-up comment. It appears the site has gone from admitting to being a satire (fake story) site, to relishing in making conservatives look silly.

Below is what the site at one time had for a disclaimer:

(June 30, 2013) 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.  Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental .  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 (and you may be if you are on this page), please consult a professional.   National Report is intended for a mature audience and not for children under the age of 18. --For a screen-shot picture of this: Click Here

The site now posts the following on each page:

(September 30, 2013) *DISCLAIMER: The National Report is an online portal for "citizen journalists". 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. --For a screen-shot picture of this: Click Here.

Clearly the website owners have learned that they get far more hits on the site if people believe the stories to be real. One article that falsely claims "Obama Declares November National Muslim Appreciation Month," currently has over 700 comments on it. It is filled with conservatives who have fallen for the trick. And yes, I was one of them. And so far the moderator on the site has not approved a follow-up comment of mine to post, letting it be known that I found out the site was a satire site and that I did not know this when I originally commented on the article.

This kind of website harms what we conservatives are fighting so hard for online. And they are sure not conservatives making sillies out of us conservatives. The website must be ran by a group of liberals.

I have never asked for an article of mine to be passed around. But I am asking for this one to be sent out to others, to get the word out
. The site is way high in the rankings. And from what I know it has only been online since February of 2013. I have searched google and found that there are other articles that write about this website, about how bad it is. We have to do our part and warn other conservatives about it.
