    I don't know any off the top of my head. Anybody else have any leads??

    I found several non-paying ones with a google search on "satire" and "news" (without quotes).

    My one satire piece was published for pay. But the magazine I published in wasn't devoted entirely to satire. My article was just the dessert -- or maybe the appetizer -- for the main meal.

    Oh, that's a good point. You might check writer's guidelines for some of your favorite magazines that use humor. Many look for satire as well. It's worth a shot.

    BTW: I think Funny Times still uses satire, but am not sure if it is "news" satire.
