Fark sucks. Do not support them.
Sorry. It's a lighthearted website which celebrates its idiocy but they are consistently rightwing idiots too.

Today they tag a "HERO" tag on a column pretending all the failures of the Middle East are attributable to Newsweek.

Last year they consistently tagged headlines cheering the SwiftVet liars.

I am all for alternatives to mainstream media. But I'm not fooled into believing 100% of those alternatives are interested in the truth. Lighthearted and witty? Sure. But still wrong. Drew Curtis is a rightwing look-the-other-way asshole. Fark sucks. www.fark.com sucks.

1. try somethingawful.com
like Fark, but I think they are more left-leaning.

4. Do you have the link to their infamous collection of FOX screen shots?
I saw an enlarged version of the classic "Geraldo expelled from moon" screen shot tacked inside a Conde Nast employee's cubicle -- hysterical

3. I will remain a Farker
it is still a good site. The complaints that they are right leaning have been around for a long time.
