It wasn't that long ago; if you questioned the Snopes narrative about Sandy Hook, you could find yourself in big trouble if not outright banned.
That only added to the conspiracy.

I wonder when this will start effecting ATS?????
There is an army of "debunkers" here and on every other major discussion site on the web. All with the same set of methods, narratives and pile ups on "sensitive" topics.
Case in point. Within the last month, Snopes and the Associated Press both claimed that articles we wrote were false when they clearly were not. As a result of their illegitimate claims, the Free Thought Project has watched our website traffic drop.

Associated Press is a non-for-profit unincorporated association of many companies world-wide, with no ownership.
AP 2017 Financials

Remember when AP had a competitor named Reuters?
They bought them out (in the interest of truth I'm sure)
Snopes has become the go-to fact check site which is quite the accomplishment for 2 people working from home.
"Who wants the truth? It's over at Bob's house!"
The web has changed the entire paradigm of how we discern reality in all it's forms.
The beauty of books is they can't change their text once printed.
As a student of history this is why I collect old books, written close to the times described within.
You quickly find certain themes have been endlessly repeated while important facts are ignored.
Today's propaganda is mostly based on lies of omission.
I think each passing generation has been steered farther from reality and remolded to fit the whims of our technocratic rulers.

It isn’t politically biased fact checking..
Most of those facts they are checking are objectively true or false..
Almost none of our political issues are subjective one side ,or both is lying..
Let’s compare narratives..
A) there is a vast leftist illuminati who controls the worlds media and uses them to discredit conservatives..
B) all the most informed people who have inside sources and have investigated the issues honestly and legitimately disagree with right wing policies...
It’s either one or the other..
A) the democrats are in a vast conspiracy to take all the guns and they are so quiet about it not one elected official in history has ever even proposed it.
B) there is no vast conspiracy to take all the guns.. it has always been political suicide to even suggest it and all the “gun grabber” rhetoric is propaganda meant to fool stupid people..
All of our political issues/narratives are either objectively true or false..
We might not have the data to accurately decide, but it is knowable to someone with the right data.
