No surprise, really.



David Mikkelson, the co-founder of the fact-checking website Snopes, has long presented himself as the arbiter of truth online, a bulwark in the fight against rumors and fake news. But he has been lying to the site's tens of millions of readers: A BuzzFeed News investigation has found that between 2015 and 2019, Mikkelson wrote and published dozens of articles containing material plagiarized from news outlets such as the Guardian and the LA Times.

After inquiries from BuzzFeed News, Snopes conducted an internal review and confirmed that under a pseudonym, the Snopes byline, and his own name, Mikkelson wrote and published 54 articles with plagiarized material.

What's this world coming to?

I mean, if we can't trust an accused embezzler and exposed plagiarist who hires his dominatrix, prostitute, girlfriend to fact check our news for us...who CAN we trust?

Still, this whole plagiarist thing DOES explain why Snopes always seems to have Joe Biden's back...They're 'TWO Of A Kind.

I'm sure both, SNOPES and Joe Biden would agree...verbatim.

I was reading about this earlier and had a good chuckle.
I don't read anything from Snopes as my gut just doesn't trust them. And turns out my gut was right!

i generally consider snopes' poo-pooing of a subject as an endorsement of that subject's authenticity.

FTR: I really hate exposing Snopes as the fraud they are to everyone here...I know how popular it is here with the Left.

I may have to buy certain members here a pony.

No. I got it. Coming from someone that use to go to Snopes for answers. It became apparent in recent years.

The moral high ground is reserved….

See: Twitter, USA Today, HuffPo, Salon, Vox etc….

“Some people are more equal than others”.

Can we see what Snopes has to say about Hunter?

I don’t like Trump or Biden.

I just don’t like hearing about “diversity” only to get to vote for one of two 70+ year old white dudes.

To be fair, I voted for C’thulu…

Errr... are we absolutely certain that "David Mikkelson" isn't itself one of Hunter Biden's pseudonyms? Sounds eerily similar in experiences, tendencies, and habits.

Some people are more equal than others.

And if you got it then im sure you understand what's good for the goose and all that jazz.

Well if it works for republicans and Mike Pillow, beating dead horses that is.

Then when in Rome seems to apply.
