ABOUT CAP NEWS

CAP News - Are you in on the joke?
The CAP News brand of satire reaches over 50,000 visitors per month, covering topics ranging from politics to business, from Barack to the bailout.


Prior to its incarnation as a web-based proprietor of satire, CAP News provided audio satire material to hundreds of radio stations around the country on a weekly basis. Since 2005, CAP News has concentrated its satire efforts solely on the web, providing a break from that dull daily routine and the much-needed chuckle to get through the rest of the day.

CAP News Satire Yesteryear

To the right, a mini screenshot of CAP News, circa March, 2000.

To save costs, the design of the site was awarded to an inmate at MCI Cedar Junction in Walpole, Mass. as part of the prison's community outreach program.

Unfortunately, the designer was shanked in the cafeteria shortly after the site went live because other inmates felt he didn't use enough color variety.

CAP News Satire Controversy

CAP News has never been one to shy away from controversy, facing off against the injustices of our society and hiding behind our lawyers whenever necessary.

In February of 2006, CAP News published one of our most talked about satire photos of all time - the picture to the left whose caption read, "President Bush takes a moment to give the troops a pep talk."

CAP News satire has often been mistaken for actual news and reported as such by large media outlets, typically leading to a flurry of angry emails by those who don't get the satirical angle.
