False Info

I have never stated an estimate for the Stock Exchange of Benion to be completed and where the funds will go. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 07:07, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

You can clearly tell that all the information in here is satirical and not meant to be taken seriously. Camelfantasy (M e h) 07:16, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

Problems

There is another news system called BNN for your information.

Technically it's called BNN!, which makes it much different from BNN.
They are both very similar. -Ben

I kinda feel offended that people like kitty stoop this low but I'm use to it so.. Keep the change -EliteNeon

Also, is this real? -Elite

Sure thing.

Offended: BNN Edition

I am Purrcat2010, complaining about the most recent satirical article in BNN, my complaints are as follows. I know I done this before with the Radish:

-My consent was not asked for showing the Nature Protectors of the MRT (the environmental terrorist group in the satire) and me in this satire.

-The Nature Protectors of the MRT and me are good people and would never do such a thing in this or any other plane of reality.

-You violated Minecraftyoshi26, mine, and the NPOTM's agreement to keep the last time I did something like this in posting a similar story.

In conclusion, The Nature Protectors of the MRT and me want a full apology ASAP and would like for all future BNN stories to get the player and/or organization before showing them in a negative way in the story. Lastly, if I see 

me or the NPOTM shown this way on The Radish, BNN, or any other satire page in the MRT community, I will take this issue to the MRT staff.

Breaking Point

Hello again Kitty, so you decided to continue to mock the Nature Protectors of the MRT. I will not stand for this. I am going to take this issue to the highest authority on the MRT, the MRT Staff. I will send the email ASAP. The NPOTM will be informed of this ASAP.

P.S. I know how satire works.

P.P.S. I am the leader and founder of the Nature Protecters of the MRT.

BREAKING NEWS: TWO BNN! ARTICLES HAVE THE EXACT SAME PLOTLINE

In the wake following the latest BNN! Publication, the popular satirical news source takes a big hit. Supreme Emperor of the City of Gryffin, Foxwolf11 has exposed the news source as unoriginal media and has even labeled the company's C.E.O. under a new nickname, CopyCat11231.

"I expect much more from the Roy Disney Corporation as a whole," said a citizen of Gryffin. "They can't even maintain a mediocre signal for a GSM stream, so after this unoriginality we're pretty much over".

BNN! has used the headline once already in the article ""We Don't Negotiate With Terrorists" - Radish CEO To The Malachite". In the article "Kaktus Republic Known Traitor Tries To Extort Business", they use the exact same phrase, "We don't negotiate with terrorists". This has prompted a whole outcry of citizen opinion criticizing the news source for unoriginality.

When asked to comment, Foxwolf11 has chosen to said only "oof". However, we can all be thankful that this news source doesn't worry about accusations of bias, because the news source that does felt the need to put a statement saying it "isn't biased by the KR Government. Seriously, trust us."

What Foxwolf11 has to say after the recent edit made by CopyCat11231.

LEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRROOOOOYYYY DISNEY!!!

Two simple requests

I have two simple requests 4 u kitty.

-Please stop memeing on The Malachite immediately and permanently

-Please start treating the Nature Protecters of the MRT like the harmless organization it is, even though Needn_NL is the current leader and I have the role of Head Publicist.

I want decency in the world of MRT Satire, I hope these requests will start paving the way for this end. I also want you and me to be the only people involved in this conversation.

Nice try Kitty, I fully know what satire is (I saw the definitions of satire u uploaded). Do know that u do have two requests that I am awaiting ur response on this very discussion page and that in many cultures it is rude not to respond if spoken to.

Response

Your words say you understand what satire is and your actions say otherwise.

As far as your requests go:
a) The entire business model of BNN! is to meme things. That is what satire is.
b) The entire point of satire is to make exaggerations and jokes. No one seriously believes your environmental conservation group is a terrorist organization.

I hope this clears things up.

Finally, thanks for ur response, but seriously, what does it take 4 The Malachite 2 b treated like all other satire organizations?

Hi Purrcat I know you get upset when others respond to these things but I can't help but interject here. It's fairly normal for satirical organizations to poke fun at other satirical organizations. You'll note that there have been multiple instances in which The Radish poked fun at BNN!, and similarly there have been points at which just the opposite has happened. If you're willing to engage in satire, a lot of which involves poking fun at other individuals and organizations, you kind of put yourself or your organization up as the potential butt of a joke. I can't speak for BNN!, but I know for a fact that the vast majority of people featured in Radish articles take it very well. I've even gotten compliments from some about articles I've written for The Radish poking fun at those same individuals. I don't think that anything Kitty has done here is out of the ordinary, especially for a self-proclaimed satirical news origination.
