Skip to comments.‘Fact checker’ Snopes gets key facts wrong on Ocasio-Cortez campaign finance scandal
Posted on 03/09/2019 8:52:51 AM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
The left-leaning fact-checking website Snopes butchered facts about a PAC controlled by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide in a story published Thursday.
Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, her former campaign chair and current chief of staff, obtained majority control of Justice Democrats in December 2017. The PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, has been widely credited with manufacturing her upset victory over incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley.
Snopes writer Dan MacGuill falsely claimed in his story that Chakrabarti, who served as executive director of Justice Democrats, was not an official agent or officer of the PAC. He also failed to acknowledge the fact that Chakrabarti and Ocasio-Cortez are members of the PACs three-member board of directors, according to archived versions of the Justice Democrats website and corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Snopes is one of the biggest Fake News sites on the web.
Snopes has just become another biased news source - except they never “break” stories.
Snopes is for Dopes.
“Snopes is for Dopes.”
Now that right there is funny!
The phrase fact checking is the preamble to the biggest and most outlandish lies. It began as an indicia of credibility that was quickly discredited.
“Just become”. Just? Huh? Snopes has been a full blast biased lefty outfit for YEARS!
“Gets key facts wrong”? That makes it sound like Snopes just made an innocent error. But Snopes does not make innocent errors. They twist and turn every which way to give cover to liberals.
And that’s a shame. Because a good, neutral fact-checking site would be a nice thing to have.
It is only useful to prove Snopes and Bill Gates’ website wrong to a national stage; otherwise, the Left still believes them. To us, here, it is just an echo chamber. I don’t need someone telling me they know Snopes is wrong. Duh.
Snopes is a liberal operation. They lie.
Snopes is garbage. It’s where the retarded go to “fact check”.
They lied to protect a democrat. What a surprise.
This is what the radical left wants you to believe: (Fake News)
...and the rest is superfluous.
That's all Snopes for Dopes is.
It would be good to have a nice, neutral international organization comprised of the nations of the world, working together to accomplish peace and progress for everyone.
It would be nice to have a good, neutral educational institution that would focus on teaching young people the things they need to know in the future, so they could support themselves and make the world a better place.
Unfortunately, these are things we'll never have, because the forces of entropy and darkness will quickly take control of them, redefine their missions, and use them to promote more entropy and more darkness, things popularly called "liberalism."
That struggle will never end. It will continue until the last days.
WOW! That site is click-bait city. Taboola has a permanent home there. No thanks.
The President should use this egregious example of bias to tag them as Lyin Snopes. Theyd have to get another gig.
