One of the websites Facebook is to use to arbitrate on 'fake news' is involved in a bitter legal dispute between its co-founders, with its CEO accused of using company money for prostitutes.
Snopes.com will be part of a panel used by Facebook to decide whether stories which users complain about as potentially 'fake' should be considered 'disputed'.
But the website's own troubles and the intriguing choice of who carries out its 'fact checks' are revealed by DailyMail.com, as one of its main contributors is disclosed to be a former sex-blogger who called herself 'Vice Vixen'.
Snopes.com will benefit from Facebook's decision to allow users to report items in their newsfeed which they believe to be 'fake'.

And these are the arbiters of what is "fake news" and what is "real news"? Headshake.
God Help US all.
No one believes Snopes, so that is a very poor choice for “fact checker. “ unless you’re a Liberal Democrat.
Sad thing? The leftists do not care. Like with the hoax hate crimes. They don’t care if the stories are true as long as the narrative of “evil whitey” gets spread around. Nothing they do is about truth or reality.
Got a Snopes link so I can check the truthiness of this allegation?

Stalinists lie. Always
The Reality of Modern Liberalism exists within the boundaries of Illusion, Lies, Deception and Fraud.
It is as totally conjured as Obama’s past.
Well, gee whiz, what good is it to be a company CEO and not be able to use the money for prostitutes ?
This can only happen with the Loonie Left. I assume they are in CA?
Saw a click bait video the other day that had Denzel Washington stating that if you
don’t read the newspaper your not informed. If you do read the newspaper your misinformed.
Trust but verify was good advice from President Reagan that I still try to follow to this day.
Stay Safe and as far away from Facebook as possible.
As long as pizzagate gets covered up all is good. /sarc.
Think it is fake news? Search David Seaman, an ex Huffington Post reporter who was fired. Before this story broke Comet Pizza, an ostensibly “kid friendly” place had a poster in the men’s room that had the tag line “Shut up and F**k.” Now it has been removed.
Remember, who thought priests were pedophiles? Of course that was covered extensively because they are Catholics.
But the left is pulling out all the stops to cover this up because it will totally destroy them.
“because it will totally destroy them.”
May it be so.
for many many years I read 2 newspapers each morning.
But for the past 20 year I have not subscribed to any newspaper. There is no news to be found there. It is also true with Network TV.
It is pure propaganda.
AP = Always Propaganda
As long as they weren't fake prostitutes ...
Will expressing one’s opinion have to be vetted for being “fake news.” Slippery slope.
A lot of the quotes attributed to celebrities are, themselves, “fake news,” never uttered by them.
The bit about reading the newspapers to be misinformed is reputed to have originated with Samuel Clemens.
It’s like Martha Raddatz as debate moderator. Everyone pretends there’s no problem while everyone knows there is a problem.
I thought she would cry Nov. 8th late night.
Good info .... I just saw the recent video . Thanks.
No I saw the video of Denzel. If he quoted someone else ok. I just referred to the video I saw. It wasn’t fake news, he didn’t make a claim of ownership just made a statement on the issue to a presstitute asking.
Merry Christmas ..... sorry thats fake as I didn’t originally come up with it. (disclaimer some here seem to require)
I just surf the assorted sources from the left, right, foreign and domestic sources and dissect it as best possible then go to the farmers table at our local diner for breakfast to hear the opinions of folks I know aren’t on facebook......:o)
Usually results are closer to fact when weighed in such a manner.
Then there is FR added.
