Quite a shock that conservative sites are creaming themselves over this.

Isn't it funny how liberals defend Snopes as if it's a left-wing mouthpiece instead of a real partisan fact-checker? That's pretty telling right there, but what do you expect from an organization that labels "keep your own doctor" true when it's been proven false over and over again.

I don't dream, I live in reality. And in my reality Snopes is reliable.

You can join my reality whenever you're ready!


There are several examples of snopes either spinning or outright lying. One example of a lie by snopes: Conservatives made a biiiiig stink about the Democrat Convention not having a US flag on the first day of the convention. Snopes ran a picture of the second day of the convention showing the flag. They tried to claim it was from the first day but it was not. Here is a good run down of several problems with snopes:

Heck, snopes claims to be a "non-partisan" website, even though they constantly show to be nothing more than DNC apologetics. They love to bash conservatives, and writers for Snopes, like Kimberly LaCapria constantly post their disdain for any conservative or other right-wing movements. Heck, she has gone so far as calling the "Tea Party" as "Teahadists" in the inquisitr. Not to mention that she, alongside other writers for Snopes, described herself as "openly left-leaning" and the same can be shown of every piece posted by Snopes showing a very "progressive", DNC apologetic website. But hey, that's what the left now-days call a "non-partisan website", even though it is nothing but a false pretension from Snopes.

So in short, liberals are following "Fact checkers" that are either porn stars, sex workers or the people hiring them for those services.

Let me guess, liberals will call me a bigot for thinking like that..

So, you present no evidence.

OK, then this must be a fake news hit piece.


I see...so you completely ignored the example I gave about Snopes's writer LaCapria lying about there not being any evidence that Omar Mateen was still a democrat during the Orlando shooting, and as evidence she uses the fact that Mateen registered as a democrat in 2006, but then LaCapria claims there is no evidence he was still a democrat when he murdered people in the Orlando shooting. Coincidentally, it was later exposed that Mateen was a regular of that nightclub.

Not only that, but a friend of Omar admitted to the Washington Post, and I quote:



I reported Omar Mateen to the FBI. Trump is wrong that Muslims don’t do our part.
We love America, too, and we're horrified by what our neighbor did.

By Mohammed A. Malik June 20
...
Omar and I continued to have infrequent conversations over the next few years. I last saw him at a dinner at his father’s house in January. We talked about the presidential election and debated our views of the candidates that were running – he liked Hillary Clinton and I liked Bernie Sanders. This banter continued through texts and phone calls for several months. My last conversation with Omar was by phone in mid-May. He called me while he was at the beach with his son to tell me about a vacation he’d taken with his father to Orlando the previous weekend. He’d been impressed by the local mosque.

What happened next is well-known. We’re still in shock. We’re totally against what he did, and we feel the deepest sadness for the victims and their families.
...

I reported Omar Mateen to the FBI. Trump is wrong that Muslims don’t do our part.

But according to Snopes there is no evidence Omar Mateen was still a democrat?... Really?... This friend of Omar had been talking to him until May 2016 and they had been talking about politics and their views, leftist views, and about Mateen liking Clinton yet there is not evidence Mateen was still democrat?...

I wonder what is more moronic, pointing the obvious left-wing slant and lies from Snopes, or thinking Snopes can be an unbiased "fact checking website" as "left-wingers" and left wing media in general want to claim?...

You do understand that what is being discussed is that Snopes cannot be a fact checking website, more so with these recent revelations about the writers for Snopes and their obvious left leaning propaganda and lies...

Oh the moronic humanity ya mate?...

But in the website "bizapedia" David Mikkelson is the registered agent of Bardav, inc.

Still trying to track the court case. I have found search queries in which Barbara and David Mikkelson are involved in at least a civic case but you have to pay to get access to the case and couldn't find it anywhere for free. :/

It obvious they chose the legal name of BarDav (for Snopes) using the first three words in their first name.
