Skip to comments.Snopes, Which Will Be Fact-Checking For Facebook, Employs Leftists Almost Exclusively
Posted on 12/17/2016 8:07:40 AM PST by rktman
Snopes, which will now have the power to declare what news is or is not legitimate on the worlds largest online platform, almost exclusively employs leftists.
Facebook announced Thursday that mythbusting website Snopes will be one of a few fact-checking organizations allowed to label stories as fake news.
Almost all of the writers churning out fact checks for Snopes have a liberal background, and many of them have expressed contempt for Republican voters. The Daily Caller could not identify a single Snopes fact-checker who comes from a conservative background. Snopes did not respond to a list of questions from TheDC regarding the sites ideological leaning.
At least two of the sites fact-checkers joined Snopes after writing for Raw Story, a far-left publication that describes itself as a progressive news site that focuses on stories often ignored in the mainstream media. Several others have demonstrated liberal partisanship.

NON print linky thing:
Snopes is not fact checking. It’s just a propaganda source. Half the country should treat it like we should ignore the mainstream media.
Yep. Fox is guarding the hen house.
SNOPES IS always letting their FAKE NEWS pass as truth. NOT a reliable fact source site.
WHat is the alternative to Facebook?
FREE REPUBLIC should designate itself as the official DEPLORABLE Fact-Checker.
Thousands of people should post fake stories about conservatives on FB and link them MSM media and see if they’re flagged by Snopes as fake.
I am tired of liberal liars calling truth lies and lies truth. I hope the Lord Jesus continues to have mercy on our sinful generations and perhaps help the conservative people to replace the lying news of leftism sites of which Facebook is but one. The fascists of America hate the truth in general and are fools.
I’ve heard that CTR (Correct The Record) a professional internet disinfo troll organization, owned and operated by Killery Clinton her self, recently took full possession of Snopes.
We don't need no stinking, fascist, leftist propaganda spreading, Fake News promoting fact checkers.
The left is getting desperate on dealing with facts. “Fake news” will become the mantra for dealing with inconvenient facts, as “hate speech” is the mantra for suppressing free speech. The constitution is being shredded and defiled.
A friend got a text last night bitching about something he had seen on MSNbc that Trump supposedly said. I automatically assume everything on MSNbc is fake.
Where is the “fair and balanced” fact-checking source?
I don’t want a “right wing fact checker” any more than I want a left-wing one like Snopes. Fairness means telling the truth, not lying or spinning.
Make it and people will support it with advertising collars. Opportunity is knocking.
Snopes fact checking FakeBook?
Thats just like the FBI/DOJ investigating Cankles and Barry.
call them the Control-Left media (CLM).
Oh. Right. FR.
Don’t forget Fast and Furious and the Benghazi “faux-investigations”.
Six month rehab for some people. Don’t know since I don’t do FB.
