On Feb. 14, 2023, Real Raw News published an article claiming that the U.S. government shot down a drone over Alaska to make President Joe Biden look good:
Alaska Shootdown Was PR Stunt
The "object" shot down over Alaskan Airspace on Friday was a USAF "aerial target drone," not a balloon or extraterrestrial spacecraft, sources in General Eric M. Smith's office told Real Raw News.
The last week has seen a spate of so-called shootdowns of unidentified objects over North America.
The "story" isn't real. Real Raw News is a satire website. The website describes its content as satire on its about page:

On Feb. 10, an unidentified object was shot down over Alaskan airspace. White House officials are still working on identifying what the object was, according to a press conference held on Feb. 13.
For background, here is why we sometimes write about satire/humor.
