A Satirical Look At Latin America

Home page of Qmentira at launch!

The Q Media has launched its latest website QMentiras.com, a satirical look at headlines in Latin America in English and the world through the keyboard of Quintus Horatius.

Billed as “the news closer to being a lie than the truth”, the website is meant to be fun, to entertain.  “If it’s not there it’s because you have damaged the inter-net”, says Quintus.

QMentiras covers Latin American politics, business, technology, entertainment, sports and much, more more: their mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance and promote intelligence – which presses forward.

The stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in Latin America and the world.

QMentiras believes that satire can be an important tool for raising awareness. The name QMentiras is combining the letter Q  – where everything is Q – and Mentiras, which is Spanish for Lies. As our name suggest, all that is on QMentiras is a “mentira” or “lie”.
