The Miami Gazette is a satirical site that uses real-sounding stories and details that might trick casual readers into believing the made-up stories are real. The website's satirical disclaimer does not appear until the bottom of the website. It says: "When it comes to satirical news – we attempt to stay away from publishing anything of a political nature (unless it’s something really silly) as our intent is not to stir up political outrage or debate. We simply aim to provide an outlet for our writers and contributors to develop creative, outrageous, and 100% fictional, satirical tall-tales that our audience can enjoy reading and sharing with friends."
Fact-checking journalism is the heart of PolitiFact. Our core principles are independence, transparency, fairness, thorough reporting and clear writing. The reason we publish is to give citizens the information they need to govern themselves in a democracy.
In a world of wild talk and fake news, help us stand up for the facts.
