They started editing/scrubbing past opinion pages and also issuing opinions that were clearly bull shite based on one irrelevant detail.

Because Snopes provides sources you can check for yourself if you like. Discussion is *not* halted, you can and should check those sources.

The real problem is that most don't even bother. They only share sources they find to be agreeable.

Some of their political stuff is so obviously biased. It's pretty funny??.

When you google "Snopes Wrong" or "Snopes Biased", the only sites that come up claiming they are are conservative sites.

Assuming they are politically biased, I've yet to see an article proving something they claimed was false backed up with concrete verifiable facts proving they were wrong.

They have a pretty great track record on the whole and present their case with notations and links to sources you can double check them on.

If you just WANT to believe something, let's say "Barack Obama is a Kenyan Born Muslim" then none of the evidence they present as to why it's ridiculous will convince you otherwise.

I hate Obama by the way, but he was born in Hawaii.

because people are stupid


Snopes is about as factual as Baghdad Bobs memoir's.

I love how they claim that, because they haven;t found any proof, that it's false. They have the biggest cop out for why it is false, w/o any proof.

Snopes admits they are biased. They aren't an authority on anything

Don't bring any facts or common sense into this discussion!

Cognitive dissonance reigns.

All of this.

The only people I've found who think Snopes is a biased site are right wing looney toonz...which means 97% of Tiger Droppings and most republicans.

Snopes isn't supposed to be unbiased. It's not a big group out to test and prove everything. Its a small group operated by few people who pick and choose what to report and how to present it.

I would love for you to debunk any Snopes article that disproves myriad right wing memes. I'm talking about things like the "$200 million/day Obama vacation"; photos of Obama doing various disrespectful things during the Pledge or National Anthem; not laying wreaths or making speeches during certain holidays; "outlawing Christmas" ;

shite like that.

They debunk plenty left-wing memes about the right, but the fact of the matter is that there are way more false right-wing memes out there to expose.

Lookey here, no bias.

People generally believe what they want to believe.

You're so sure of yourself you don't even realize your own bias. You are exactly what you claim those "right wing loons" to be.

Their conclusion of facts isn't bad. Their interpretation is the problem. They go on and on trying to explain why in a biased manner, which is where they get some flack.

I also think they are being sued right now.

You mean to tell me that people who have a bias that matches to Snopes' bias don't think there is a problem?

Shazaam!
