The Real Truth About SNOPES.COM

Don't Ever Doubt Again this Ultra-Left Wing Site is Honest!

This quite enlightening article will put to bed any doubt that the uber-liberal "Snopes.com" that everyone goes to is just plain full of shit.  Don't take my word, read from an ABC News article written in September, 2016 about what the founder says in his own words on Snopes.com while commenting on a featured political news story!

David Mikkelson, founder of Snopes.com, a website known for its biased opinions and inaccurate articles they write about stories on the internet in order to generate advertising revenue, told ABC News that he approves of what a story like this is accomplishing.

“You have to understand that when a story like this goes viral, and we spend a minute or two debunking it, we make lots of money. Stories like this have helped put my children through college, buy a new car, a home and even get the sex reassignment surgery my wife Barbara always wanted since she was a little boy,” Mikkleson said. “We claim ‘to provide evidence for such debunkings and confirmation as well‘, but that’s just ridiculous. Do you know how much time that would take? Instead, we just copy and paste parts of the original article into ours, write a couple sentences, and that’s it. I just want to be clear, our website does zero journalism or anything creative, and I’m only telling you this for legal reasons.” Mikkleson continues, “A typical story of ours makes wild claims, using grammatical errors, misspellings and words like ‘umimumimaginative’, ‘recycled’, ‘hoax’, saying that a story ‘illegally appropriates the trademarks of legitimate news organizations’, but we list no links or sources of information, they are all just wild claims by us. And that story will get 50,000 shares or more on Facebook, that’s a lot of ad revenue for only writing a couple sentences.” Mikkelson further explains, “It is common for us to rewrite a story we’re debunking if we don’t like it. In one recent story of ours, we actually removed a person’s name from the original article and then called him a liar, it’s so funny! We also like to post fakeun-funny, juvenile disclaimers supposedly from the site in question and it is our authors, such as Jeff Zarronandia who are responsible for those gems. We tell our readers that the disclaimer is from the story we are debunking, but a simple google search will show that our disclaimer is 100% fabricated. Sometimes I think that someone should start a company that debunks our debunkings, they could probably make a lot of money,” Mikkelson laughs. “And lots of people complain about ourauthors attacking websites and their owners for reasons that are 100% proven false, but since we block archive.org it just becomes their word versus ours. Our writers like Zarronandia go as far as to say that the story originated from ‘a clickbait fake news site that infringes the trademark-protected visual elements and domain names of legitimate news outlets in order to generate traffic and drive advertising revenues by creating and spreading entirely false “news” stories‘. But we don’t list ONE factual piece of evidence to back up our claims; It’s just more of our hack, unethical journalism, and as I said before, I only tell you this for legal reasons. I think it is business as usual for us to accuse the story we are debunking of spreading malware and viruses, but we never say what website it actually is. I think warning people about a site that could potentially destroy their computer is probably a good idea, and I hope one day to do that kind of ethical journalism, but people will click our ads regardless, bottom line; so why do the extra work?”

Snopes has been politically biased for _many_ years---and appears to be vigorously so in the current political arena. They defer to left-thinkers and liberal (progressive) agendas. I don't trust them on any political view since Obama was elected. Their defense of him sticking his nose into state and city affairs is obviously to sway public opinion to his biased thoughts. His flagrant deception to American citizens is outrageous and I don't think a President of the United States has been so despised since Richard Nixon! Never the less; Snopes defends his lies and "public be damned" attitude without viable evidence to the contrary.

You're retarded. Look at the source of that link, you right-wing nutjob. It's abc.com.CO ... that's not ABC's website. That's a fake website made by Paul Horner, who was trying to show just how gullible and stupid right-wingers are. And you fell for it.

Glad the Geez guy brought up the claim that this was a hoax as Paul Horner, the 38-year-old impresario of a Facebook fake-news empire, has made his living off viral news hoaxes for several years. Horner hates Trump and wanted Hillary Clinton to win. It is well known, though, that David Mikkelsen of Snopes is a big Obama supporter and funder so this attributed story fits his profile. I believe the snopes site is another fake news media source like Paul Horner which is baseless stealth liberal biased lies and subterfuge designed to distort conservative facts and beliefs. Glad this issue was brought out into the light to show the dark side of fake news.
