Surfing away and read this i thought Snopes.com is supposed to present facts about stories not push one way or another the slant given in this story line presented a very obvious slant towards a left leaning explanation:

"she has been the target of a relentless campaign to try to discredit her and cast aspersions on her motivation for coming forward. "

- that seems like an opinion "relentless" & "aspersions"

One of the most common smears directed at women to discredit them personally in such situations is try to paint them as “loose” and promiscuous. One of the most common ways to discredit them politically is to attempt to link them to the bogeyman of the right, billionaire hedge fund manager and Open Society Foundations founder George Soros.

- ok i don't know what that's about so do i have these people all wrong i thought he was on the left?

LOL below
Snopes.com has long been engaged in the battle against misinformation, an effort we could not sustain without the support of our readers

www.snopes.com...

Titled: Is This a Photograph of Christine Blasey Ford with Bill Clinton? But look at the address ???

ATS what do you think am i wrong or is there actually a slant and misinformation here? Where did the the claim of most common smears come from or is based on?

Snopes is run in a basement by a couple of huge Obama supporters that were left-wing radicals before he came onto the scene.

They have always posted opinions slanted a little left of Stalin.

I've never seen anyone on ATS even reference them, for fear of the absolute ridicule you will receive for using them as a source.

ETA....Youtube results for Snopes.Com Lies

Agreed. It was extremely obvious in the 2016 elections that they were a propagandist organization.

Yeah. Sort of like using Wikipedia.

But, like Wikipedia, Snopes does provide links to original sources. Which can often be useful.

Oh yeah...they are card carrying, lifetime members of the Leftist cult.
They wouldn’t know what a fact is if it bit them in the ass.

True. However, Wikipedia doesn't have the same baggage...


Snopes "fact checking" website on verge of collapse as founder is accused of lying, cheating, and putting prostitutes and his honeymoon on the expenses. Founders second wife (now an employee) is a former porn star & "Courtesan"

Phage did point out the one useful thing about Snopes... they source their findings.

You didn't provide a link to your source but isn't that from about a year ago? How long does a "verge" last?

They have always leaned to the left. Some people deny it, but oh well.

That woman looks just like Ford.

Snopes fell into the bad habit of linking sources to articles that start with the words "sources say".
"Sources" could be old Otis Campbell on the street corner...

(Otis was a character from the Andy Griffith show)

J. If the left is defined by being closer to communism than the right, then just how far to the left can Soros be?
Is he a communist? No, he is a filthy rich capitalist who gained his wealth by managing hedge funds.
Is he a socialist? No. he is a filthy rich capitalist who manages capitalist hedge funds.
Is he a capitalist? Yes. So, just how far to the left could he be ?

A better question would be what he spends his money on...

Snopes has always been aeft leaning site.
Simply follow the history of the “fact checkers”, and you’ll start to see the pattern.

Making more money? Capitalists do that, yes.


Oh you mean his contributions. That's his prerogative, no?

If his prerogative is attempting to remake our nation into a Hegelian Utopia, that is his business, yes.

However, I personally don't think that America would be the better for it.

You know, because of all the pain, death and misery that would come from transforming it into such.

But hey! He would make a lot of money out of the deal so it's all good, no?
