LEBANON, KANSAS, Nov. 19, 2017—From the geographical and arguably spiritual center of the United States comes a new publication, DEFINITIVE FACTS, founded with a mission to serve Americans with “clickbait for the radical moderate.”
“Most news sites that operate purely to generate clicks are really one-sided,” said Editor-in-Chief Hussein Garcia-Smith. “We want to bring a unique brand of overblown, hyper-aggressive clickbait to the reasonable, fact-based moderates of America.”
DEFINITIVE FACTS will take a radically bipartisan approach to news and politics, like Breitbart News does on the right and Upworthy on the left. “Centrism doesn’t have to be middling,” said Garcia-Smith.
“We figured, people are convinced by fake news because it is usually really shouty,” he added. “We want to shout out the facts in as loud and obnoxious a way as possible. Please like the ‘DE FACTO’ page on Facebook and share our stories if, after reading all the way to the end, you think they deserve a wider audience.”
For a taste of the bracingly bipartisan fare that DEFINITIVE FACTS has in store, these are a dozen headlines of stories to be published at launch, scheduled for noon on the ides of December.
