On Monday morning, DNAinfo Chicago published this puff piece on Sports Mockery.
What was missing? Only the actual real story about Sports Mockery right now, which is how its staff and audience seem to align perfectly with Donald Trump supporters.
If one more person tries to get me to read a Sports Mockery article... This Kane stuff isn't a joke, people. Wait for real reporting.— Sarah Spain (@SarahSpain) August 10, 2015
The Heckler is SATIRE! You're claiming to be reporting real news. Not surprised you don't know the difference. https://t.co/XucaiUur7R— Sarah Spain (@SarahSpain) August 10, 2015
I have, but a lot of others can't tell the diff. b/w them & real reporting & it's fanning flames of bad situation. https://t.co/Wp6rh1Eniq— Sarah Spain (@SarahSpain) August 10, 2015
I know, I know. I'm done. It's just scary watching victim blaming/rape culture fed by a site's unfounded rumors. https://t.co/WSniqzvpax— Sarah Spain (@SarahSpain) August 10, 2015
Reactions to this story have been upsetting, to say the least. Just trying to help educate about sexual assault & how we talk about it.— Sarah Spain (@SarahSpain) August 10, 2015
.@SarahSpain - Victim blaming? Do you know our sources? Since when is reporting information from a source "victim blaming" You are ASSuming.— ✶ Sports Mockery ✶ (@sportsmockery) August 10, 2015
Heretofore, Sports Mockery was best known for its post "Did Patrick Sharp Have Sex With Teammates' Wife?"
Pro tip: If you have to ask, you don't have the story.
Is It Possible The Sports Mockery Staff Raped The Woman? Yes!
Is It Wrong To Ask The Question? It's Wrong To Be A Douchebag, Yes.
But Not As Glaring As The Holes In Sports Mockery's Brains.
But it's fun to pretend to be real journalists.
Here's another Pro Tip - to DNAinfo: 30,000 Twitter followers is not an impressive number when you are following 33,000. In other words, Sports Mockery has a Twitter deficit.
Obviously I'm on Team Spain on this one, except for one thing: She's been much too polite to these dicks.
P.S.: Adding this:
If you follow Sports Mockery, slap yourself and then unfollow.— Julie DiCaro (@JulieDiCaro) August 11, 2015
