Skip to comments.What is Snopes.com – Can it be Trusted?
Posted on 08/15/2018 5:51:29 AM PDT by vannrox
Not strictly limited to politics, Snopes.com is a website that supposedly attempts to debunk and invalidate urban legends, Internet rumors and other stories of uncertain origin. Today, they are the voice of the statist globalist oligarchy.
Of course, others mostly rich country-club Democrats, think otherwise. They point out the mission statement at the website. It is officially an independent entity privately owned by its operators. Not for profit?
The owners, Barbara and David Mikkelson, have both publicly stated that they receive no funding in any form. Curious. Most curious. This is really, really interesting. You know, it sure is curious that someone who has no income, no funding, and no sources of income can live in an upscale mansion. Not only that, but do so in one of the most expensive sections of California, travel the world extensively, and drive around in some very, very expensive cars
Ah, but thats ok. You know.
Whether you are hob-nobbling with Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein, Race baiter (the Reverend) Jessie Jackson, or international arch villain George Soros, we all know that you are never influenced by their money. (Wink, wink.)
Full of Lies and Half-truths
This group has been caught in more than a few outright lies, disinformation and distortions of truthful and actual events. This is true whether it is a study on whether Donald Trump sits on a solid gold toilet when he takes a dump, or how the Palestinians funded their network of attack-tunnels.
As far as UFOs and other extraordinary events are concerned, they are firstly, a mouthpiece of the status quo. Do not expect them to understand quantum physics, chemistry or anything too cerebral. Their interest lies in the dissemination of popular trite responses to extraordinary events. They do in a way that finds its greatest appeal

They are purveyors of the worst fake news that can be created.
I stay away from the site, refuse to click on it...'cause every click means money going into their pockets.
They are worthless turds, water carriers for the other bunch of worthless turds, the dimocrats.
Ignore them and they'll wither on the vine.
Left wing hacks and no they cannot be trusted.
Soros-funded therefore “no.”
The founding couple have divorced and the website has been on the verge of bankruptcy since 2017 and set up a GoFundMe account.
Politically and socially it skews answers hard left. Otherwise it can be interesting. Haven’t been there in quite awhile.
As trustworthy as all other satire sites.
the garden variety urban legend lore was all cribbed/stolen from Jan Brunvand’s books. Things like cement in a convertible, baby trains, spiders nests in beehive hairdos, etc...
some people use that content to substantiate the other rumors they “squash”. “see they are right about all of this stuff”.
What’s more, Mr. Brunvand used to point out instances where the media itself (knowingly no doubt) spread urban legends in newspapers and on tv because it was good fodder for public interest (ratings/clickbait).
A Soros funded web HMMMMMMMMM No.
Occasionally helpful but will spin things towards the left.
It started as a good idea, ended up as a Libard tool
CANNOT BE TRUSTED
They can be trusted as much as the WashingCIA Post, The NYT (New York Terrorists), NBC, and so on!
It’s as reliable as Wikipedia (for political stuff)
(that’s a joke- Wiki is edited by the general public)
HOWEVER, the site became politicized and biased years ago so that it is NOT to be trusted. I concur with your statements.
But, but, but my Leftist friends LOVE Snopes and trust everything they read there! (Sadly, NOT sarcasm)
The data has no integrity. Now they can’t be trusted to debunk the sky being yellow.
The dataset is too corrupt. Nothing short of “We work at Snopes” can be trusted anymore. I would say “Shut the whole thing down” but it would just send the roaches scattering.
