Snopes was good for urban legends and the like, but their political fact checking left much to be desired as their analyses was often rudimentary at best.

It really is not surprising that the site is faltering. The owner dumped his wife and ran off with porn star, Erin O'brien.

Opinions aren't facts.

Guess you just proved how our educational system is a failure?

Were you university level educated in Australia too? Wonderful!
Someone's opinion on a website is what you say isn't a fact? ......okaaaaaay .........ha????

Actually, TBH I don't know what argument you are trying to make....there is a stretch happening there I sense, but I'm not sure I care enough to delve further to find out.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's the matter? The politicians that paid them to lie are too busy worrying about email revelations to continue, as they need the funds for their own cases? Disney decided they weren't believable enough to continue? Draining the swamp has removed some of their disinformation sources?

ROTFL!!! I'd call this poetic justice.

You are the one who made the comment of opinions. Not I! Snopes is suppose to check FACTS.

Care to take your foot out of you mouth?

Actually, your post sounded like you wanted to donate to snopes because they share the same opinions as you.


Obviously I was not the only one thinking that FACTS and OPINIONS are two different things. And the snopes people are not doing a very good job if they come across as having a certain set of opinions...

Just saying.

I don't have to think anything, your words are enough to convict you! Opinions ARE NOT FACTS!

While this subject is attracting attention, can I ask why it is that Snopes gets so much of a slating?

I really don't understand where it started, but it seems to be an article of faith on ATS that Snopes is some kind of disinformation project or similar.

Can anyone point me to the evidence for this belief?

(Genuine question. Thanks in advance to anyone who can solve this mystery).


They lie. On a couple of non-political matters, such as Disney and other cartoons, their own evidence, in cases they claimed were "false" proved they were true. They simply LIE.

In cases where it's clearly true, they also have had a way of rewording things, in such a fashion that they can claim "unsure" or whatever, instead of admitting the facts. When confronted with their own evidence, they act like they don't know what you are talking about. The political bias is very clear, if you spend any time reviewing that section. They claim a research staff, but it's basically a husband and wife team. They just aren't credible.

I clarified with stating opinion of a site.
It's nice to see this is what I am reduced to debating here nowadays....can't even make a statement without being told you said something else.

Anyhow, BIG thanks to the OP and every else for letting people know they need help!
It is my opinion it is a good site, with faults here and there, but meah which one doesn't.

They'll get "bailed out" by a major news organization and push a narrative same as everyone else.

Snopes is like "pod people" now.

Sure they may "appear" legit, but ahhhh. . . . nope.

Just my conspiratorial opinion of course.

Umm, I just questioned your logic and use of words, ie opinion versus facts.

Now whom is hysterical here?

I was polite in my reply to you, I see no reason for you to be upset. And why are you complaining about discussing this? YOU chose to post in an open thread on a DISCUSSION forum, someone replying to you should not come as a great surprise. Also YOU were the one using the word "haters" in your post, and that is rather aggressive, isn't it? I think you should calm down quite a bit.

Maybe you just should have been more clear in your post, I was not the only one reading it as you supported snopes for their opinions.
