Skip to comments.Is Snopes Liberal?
Posted on 07/02/2008 2:46:57 PM PDT by spacejunkie01
I have been looking at Snopes to "confirm" certain things out there about Obama. For instance, quotes from his books, and Snopes comes across as very liberal, defending Obama and making excuses for what he's said. Most of the quotes, he did in fact say but Snopes likes to say it was taken out of context, etc. Anyone else have an opinion on this?

Yes. Figured it out long time ago. Do the have a fixed set of authors or is it “free contributors”.
Yes, Snopes is owned by a liberal. Can’t remember his name but he’s for Obama.
TRUE: Snopes is in the tank for Obama.
I know a professor, O groupie, and fan of all things liberal-especially the ACLU.
Prof uses and has students use Snopes to check for the “truth” of their info.
I used to use them to debunk stuff about W. Haven’t been there lately. Should be easy enough to read the passages in his book and compare to Snopes. I would be interested to know if they are fudging it.
I would too but don’t have his books. Think we can read them free on line? The thing is, I don’t know if I can bring myself to read them :|
Snopes is a victim of his own BS and thinks he’s omniscient.
Yes, Snopes lied about Kerry on the Swift Boat stuff that I had seen confirmed by multiple sources (including raw documents).
It’s a fun site, but completely biased.
if you type in ‘dreams of my father’ in the search box, the first thing that comes up is the email that’s going around about quotes from his books that OBAMA made. Snopes makes excuses for what he says but doesn’t dispel what he says. Except for one quote (so they say) but its from an interview that obama gave, most likely with a liberal rag.
Look at their true and false page on John Kerry
Snopes is a Leftist site run by Leftist activists who use their False Authority to promote the Leftist Agenda.
In 2003, they took down the Clinton Body Count and linked the Bush Body Count in its place.
That same March they publicly stated their opposition to Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I refuse to give that site the Web hit they so desperately need.
Yes, in my OPINION, both Snopes and FactCheck.org lean left.
This isn’t to say that both sites don’t sometimes debunk a LEFTY lie. But they still lean left. It’s like seeing a non-leftist editorial in the NY Times or The Nation; on such occasions, one can point to these websites and say, “Why, even the left-leaning Snopes says this Howard Dean comment is baloney.”
Here’s a site I used to go to before I found Snopes. Have no idea what their leaning is, but could probably compare some controversial stories. Who knows they may be liberal also. http://www.truthorfiction.com/
It is a curiosity how those supposedly committed to getting to the truth can maintain such a level of delusion. Who can understand it?
Snopes is also lying about that dang ghost in “Three Men and a Baby.” Cardboard cut-out of Danson my ass. That thing is real!
ALTERNATIVES TO SNOPES
COMMON SENSE CONSERVATIVE
TRUTH OR FICTION
Yes, they certainly seems to be Obama supporters.
I clicked on urbanlegends. They’re as moon-batty as Snopes.
