About The Satirist
Since 1999, millions of readers and web crawlers have read The Satirist online at http://www.thesatirist.com.
Articles in “The Satirist” are referenced in books, academic journals, and online publications, including The Guardian, The Atlantic, The Learning Channel, Grantland, Wikipedia, and the National Review, among many others.
The Satirist is now widely used as an educational resource as assigned and recommended reading material by high schools and universities in the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, and other countries for its classic satire, literary criticism, fiction, essays, and film reviews.
Satirical news, imaginary criticism, and genuine criticism co-exist on the website. However, these should be easy enough to distinguish. “Imaginary review” is usually used to distinguish reviews of imaginary works from the numerous reviews of actual books or movies.
The Satirist wishes it were The New Yorker, aspiring to lofty heights of wit, sophistication and perspicacity. Instead, The Satirist produces fake news (as popularized by The Onion), book reviews, movie reviews, and the occasional major (or at least long) piece of satire.
