Snopes 'in danger of closing doors'

When any thing becomes sooo "Politicized" one way or another, it becomes a "useless" tool. Too bad ,for us that would just like a" fact "here and there so we can "think" for ourselves. How "Unfashionable" can you get? :confused:


'Hookers, lies and fraud': Snopes 'in danger of closing doors'

So-called “fact-checking” website Snopes.com is reportedly on the verge of financial collapse since one if its founders has been accused of using company cash to fund his contentious divorce and to pay for fancy vacations with his new wife, a former escort and porn actress.

The financial situation has apparently become so dire that Snopes owner David Mikkelson launched a crowd-funding website to solicit donations, according to London’s Daily Mail. Readers contributed more than $500,000 in just the first 24 hours.

As WND has reported, Snopes.com, a website that’s been around since 1995, is sometimes cited by other “fact-checking” sites to support their claims. Facebook has even indicated it plans to use Snopes as one of its arbiters of “fake news.” But WND revealed the site has been criticized by conservatives for a left-leaning bias and admits it has no standard procedure for fact-checking.

Thanks Doka and that's a good post Dude111 and snopes deserves your words. I doubt the remaining owner has time to moderate both the new hottie wife and his old web site bout Urban Legends; not so much! :oops:

I can make two claims I'm kinda proud about! First off in 2008 I was escorted outside at our local Tyota plant after receiving a fellow auto parts trucker's call about a "shunt driver" who hit those exact docks nightly. He'd been hospitalized that day for heart stints for his survival. Worried about me taking photos with my old slab phone that was not camera equipped, I told them the emergency-like news of our old friend. They were not fazed!

At age 65 he died last weekend of a heart attack. :( Jim was a war veteran during the unpopular 60's and 70's war as a member of the All American division with red double AA's on their famous WW II shoulder patch, the 82nd Airborne Division. 8)

Secondly at Daily Snopes, old grumpy Dave Mikkleson had posted something VERY derogatory with WW II war hero Lt. Audie Murphy as the subject. The few comments, including mine, were negative in disbelief. So I let him have it in a PM and I got banned PDQ! :P

His former wife was named Barbara and surely she's better off without her legend critic!

:wink:

MK II :P
"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one but don't have it, you'll probably never need one again!" :oops: :wink: from 'Gun Shots' on Twitter/ Check out http://malarino.com/ it's 95% Turmeric :!: :mrgreen:
