Host Tucker Carlson referenced a tweet by CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan that sounded the alarm over a Bee article that made fun of Democrats who criticized President Trump’s droning of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
In response to the article headlined “Democrats Call For Flags To Be Flown At Half-Mast To Grieve Death Of Soleimani,” O’Sullivan wrote that “having a disclaimer buried somewhere on your site that says it’s ‘satire’ seems like a good way to get around a lot of the changes Facebook has made to reduce the spread of clickbait and misinformation.”
“Everything is irony,” Dillon told Carlson. “How funny is it that CNN is coming after us for spreading disinformation?”
In response to O’Sullivan, the Bee posted a satirical headline “claiming” the network was angry with them because “the internet is only big enough for one Fake News site.”
