I can tell you why I don't like them.
One, they are very biased politically. They will claim something is "false", when it isn't, and use phrasing to try and excuse the claim. I have
seen this time and time again. Some politician says something, or does something, and it gets out online. They get hold of it, and try to spin
things so it looks like the person didn't "really" say or do what they did.
Two, they flat out LIE when it comes to anything that would reflect badly on Disney. I have SEEN things they claim are "false". Examples? The
Little Mermaid VHS case - I had a friend in Germany that owned the original case, with that explicit "artwork" on the cover. The "tower" that
wasn't a tower. Saw it, and there is NO doubt that was intentional. None. Snopes calls that a false story, claiming that the person was
"contracted", and not a Disney employee, and totally ignoring the fact that they did do it on purpose, working for Disney. The Lion King "cloud"
- Seen that one, paused it, and the word is clearly THERE. They claim it's not, and that it's only people imagining it. Same claim they make for
the muttered phrase in Aladdin. Another incident from The Little Mermaid - the scene at the wedding ,with the priest. In the VHS (which we owned),
you could pause, and go frame-by-frame through it, and clearly see what the priest had in his pants. Snopes claims that was "his knee". There is
an old Bugs Bunny cartoon in there, where it seems pretty clear that Bugs was supposed to be exposed by a towel, and they act like there isn't
anything there. If you write them, pointing out, with clear proof, that they are wrong, they act like you don't know anything, won't address the
evidence, and basically blow off whatever you tell them.
