The fake news police over at Real or Satire have written a comprehensive report analyzing the ethics practiced by the Defender. Here are their findings:




From the Cedar Rapids Defender About page:

The Cedar Rapids Defender is an independent media watchdog owned and operated by the people who work for it. Letters, articles and guest columns are welcome.
Although they have a dedicated — and clearly marked — Satire section the articles presented in their News section are indeed real.

That’s not to say that they aren’t above putting commentary with their story.

A comment about someone’s advanced aging appearance due to meth use. Referencing a sex-offender as ‘notorious‘. Not-so-subtle jabs at their readership.

Reader beware, there is a fair bit of opinion on this site and not all of them are clearly marked as such.
