Just recently noticed a parody website exists in Billings. It is called the Billings Beet. Not sure where it comes from, but it seems really interesting? If that is the right word for what they are.
Last week the Billings Beet decided to write a satirical article comparing a Billings radio host who had been arrested for partner family member assault to Greg Gianforte and say they would be having a wrestling match soon.
While an analysis of the troubling nature of Greg Gianforte’s violent criminal record is fair game, because Gianforte was convicted of assault against a reporter, it is an unnecessary comparison as it makes light of domestic violence. A subject that is not a laughing matter, under any circumstances.
Satire is important and generally the Billings Beet is a funny take on reality, they missed it this time though.
