    Default snopes got snoped

    always knew the website had shoddy facts.

    http://asheepnomore.net/2013/10/26/s...ped/#arvlbdata


    Snopes got Snoped!
    Snopes is run by a man and a woman with no background in investigation; they just use Google.
    Snopes.com has been considered the ‘tell-all final word’ on any comment, claim and email. One negative article by them and people point and say, “See, I told you it wasn’t true!”
    But what is Snopes? What are their methods and training that gives them the authority to decide what is true and what is not? For several years people have tried to find out who exactly was behind the website Snopes.com. Only recently did they get to the bottom of it.
    Are you ready for this?
    It is run by a husband and wife team – that’s right, no big office of investigators scouring public records in Washington, no researchers studying historical stacks in libraries, no team of lawyers reaching a consensus on current case law. Nope, Snopes.com is just a mom-and-pop operation that was started by two people who have absolutely NO FORMAL BACKGROUND OR EXPERIENCE IN INVESTIGATIVE RESEARCH!!!
    Did you read that? Information people are using as the TRUTH is coming from 2 people, and they are now the experts on truth? Wow …have we seriously become this dumbed down that we go to 2 people we don’t even know, and now they tell us what is TRUTH? No investigation …is that not called opinion?

    102210_1614_somuchforsn11-1 David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago. After a few years it began gaining popularity as people believed it to be unbiased and neutral. But over the past couple of years people started asking questions when Snopes was proven wrong in a number of their conclusions. There were also criticisms that the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the ‘true’ bottom of various issues, but rather asserting their beliefs in controversial issues.

    In 2008, State Farm agent Bud Gregg hoisted a political sign in Mandeville, Louisiana referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the internet. The Mikkelsons were quick to “research” this issue and post their condemnation of it on Snopes.com.

    In their statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Mr. Gregg into taking down the sign. In fact, nothing of the sort ever took place. A friend of Mr. Gregg personally contacted David Mikkelson to alert him of the “factual” inaccuracy, leaving him Mr. Gregg’s contact phone numbers. Mr. Mikkelson was told that Mr. Gregg would give him the phone numbers to the big executives at State Farm in Illinois who would inform them that they had never pressured Mr. Gregg to take down his sign.

    But the Mikkelsons NEVER called Mr. Gregg. In fact, Mr. Gregg found out that no one from Snopes.com had ever contacted any one with State Farm. Yet, Snopes.com has kept their false story of Mr. Gregg up to this day, as the “final factual word” on the issue.



    What is behind Snopes’ selfish motivation? A simple review of their “fact-checking” reveals a strong tendency to explain away criticisms towards liberal politicians in the false left vs right paradigm and public figures while giving conservatives the hatchet job (that’s called BIAS in the false 2 party system). Religious stories and issues are similarly shown no mercy. With the “main-stream” media quickly losing all credibility with their fawning treatment of President Obama, Snopes is being singled out, along with MSNBC and others, as being particularly biased and agenda-motivated. (this is NOT about the 2 party false paradigm or the corporate owned news)

    So if you really want to know the truth about a story or a rumor you have heard, by all means do not go to Snopes.com!

    You could do just as well if you were a liberal or conservative in that false 2 party system with an internet connection. Don’t go to wikipedia.com either as their team of amateur editors have also been caught in a number of bold-faced liberal-biased untruths (Such as Wikigate and their religious treatment of Obama). Take anything these sites say with a grain of salt and an understanding that they are written by people with a motive to criticize all things conservative (they could have been a liberal and biased it there) and do your OWN RESEARCH or use them only to lead you to solid references where you can read their sources for yourself.

    It now seems apparent that the Mikkelsons have created themselves a job based upon their opinion.

    9/11 Quote from Snopes:

    “Moreover, since the airliner was full of jet fuel and was flown into thick, reinforced concrete walls at high speed, exploding in a fireball, any pieces of wreckage large enough to be identifiable in after-the-fact photographs taken from a few hundred feet away burned up in the intense fire that followed the crash (just as the planes flown into the World Trade Center towers burned up, and the intensity of their jet-fuel fires caused both towers to collapse).”

    Just like the official government version, no mention of building 7 one of the actual reasons, based upon research, that wakes people up to that horrific false flag operation. Snopes is not stupid enough to not know about building 7 and also would know no plane hit it which leads me to believe they are intentionally misleading the American public.

    SEE HERE THAT SNOPES IS MISLEADING THE AMERICAN PUBLIC ON 9/11: Overwhelming EVIDENCE that 9/11 WAS a False Flag Operation ….Who Did It & Why [Video]

    THIS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE WAS LEFT OUT OF SNOPES AS THEY DEFEND THE GOVERNMENT’S VERSION OF 9/11: “We’re going to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran..” – Retired Gen. Wesley Clark

    MORE INFORMATION LEFT OUT OF SNOPES AS THEY DEFEND THE GOVERNMENT’S VERSION OF 9/11: Building 7 – Still The Smoking Gun For 9/11 TRUTH!

    9/11 TRUTH FINALLY APPEARS IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA: UNPRECEDENTED 9/11 C-SPAN VIDEO BUT SNOPES STILL DEFENDING THE GOVERNMENT’S VERSION OF THE 9/11 EVENTS?

    OVER 60 ARTICLES DEBUNKING THE GOVERNMENT’S VERSION OF 9/11 AS SNOPES DEFENDS THE GOVERNMENT’S VERSION OF 9/11

    So, you decide for yourself the next time you trust Snoped word with information that will ultimately end your life like the UN handgun ban coming on 12/24/14. Full Story here: http://www.snopes.com/rumors/pentagon.asp

    They also claim no insider trading was done, when in fact to highly detailed studies say a MASSIVE amount of it was done, and it is concrete irrefutable proof that Snopes is wrong.

    As usual on things they are not correct on, I will send an email and never get a response. But, if I do I will post it. Full Story here: http://www.snopes.com/rumors/putcall.asp

    Wow…read this one! Then check out the suggested web sites!!!

    Many of the emails that I have sent or forwarded that had any anti-Obama information in it were negated by Snopes. I thought that was odd. Check this out.
    For some time we’ve seen reports that Elaina Kagan was Obama’s attorney fighting those pesky “he isn’t a citizen” law suits. Lawsuits that Snopes says don’t exist or at least that Kagan didn’t represent Mr. Obama in those suits. Guess what … they lied! She did represent Obama.


    Snopes, Soros and the Supreme Court’s Kagan. Well now I guess the time has come to check out Snopes! Ya’ll don’t suppose it might not be a good time to take a second look at some of the stuff that got kicked in the ditch by Snopes, do ya?
    We’ve known that it was owned by a lefty couple but hadn’t known it to be financed by Soros!
    Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros, a big time supporter of Obama! In our search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions.
    I went to Snopes to check something about the dockets of the new Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, who Obama appointed, and Snopes said the email was false and there were no such dockets. So I Googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess what? Yep, you got it; Snopes lied! Every one of those dockets are there.
    Referencing the article about Elana Kagan and Barak Obama dockets:
    The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to. I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking. Thank You. I hope you will be much more truthful in the future, but I doubt it.
    That being said, I’ll bet you didn’t know this:
    Kagan was representing Obama in ALL the petitions to prove his citizenship. Now she may help rule on them. Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago Politics and the beat goes on and on and on. Once again the US Senate sold us out!


    Now we know why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court. Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course. They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it? The American people mean nothing any longer.


    It’s all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone who really has no true right to even be there.


    Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Doc: You can look up some of these hearings and guess what? Elana Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!
    Check out these examples:

    It's amusing when outside forces ascribe mandatory criterion for running a website, based on their own made up expectations of what that website should be, rather than the reality of what it is.

    You realise there are other websites out there with similar elucidating objectives...? The only authority Snopes has, has been granted to it from other people on the internet.

    The essence of what you've posted (aside from the dubious contention that it is somehow remiss of Snopes not to give credence to half baked conspiracies) is: don't believe everything you read on the internet.

    You could have just posted another one of your, shorter, equally misguided opinions, and the effect would have been similar.

    so facts dont mean anything.. if they go against your beLIEfs?


    as stated, WTC7, which snopes ignores.. are you telling me, that they hooked it up for demolition on the same morning the towers went down?


    or does it make more sense, that WTC7 was already rigged to explode?

    do you know how long it takes to rig a building for demolition?



    sorry my bad, it was done on the morning of 9/11, while the other towers where falling all around it..

    cos that is factually possible.



    i dont go for internet conspiraries.

    i look at official figures (nist report) which contradicts it self numerous times.

    come with sources bro.

    excuse me?

    i think you've made some false inferences from my post; i was merely pointing out that i feel you've miscalculated how mind-blowing it is that Snopes isn't 100% accurate and unbiased.

    da saga continues..


    Snopes, the Supposed Arbiter of ‘Fake News’ — Accused of ‘Defrauding Own Site to Pay for Prostitutes’
    Read more at http://thefreethoughtproject.com/sno...8D4Ht6Smj0H.99


    Fraud, embezzlement, and using company funds to pay for prostitution are just a sampling of the accusations against the CEO of fact-checking website, Snopes — a site which, incidentally, is part of Facebook’s new panel to combat “fake news.”
    Facebook’s choice to hire Snopes to arbitrate which news items will be allowed to stand and which should receive the Scarlet-Letter label ‘disputed’ already brought outrage — the site is notoriously left-leaning — but an exclusive report from the Daily Mail on alleged shady dealings should turn Mark Zuckerberg’s cheeks a deep shade of red.
    David and Barbara Mikkelson, ex-spouses and founders of Snopes, have been hurling accusations allegations at one another in an ongoing bitter legal dispute following their divorce — and many of the claims don’t exactly give the company an air of professionalism.
    Last month, David remarried — his new wife is a former porn actress and escort — and is now one of the site’s fact-checkers. As for the accusations, reports the Daily Mail,
    “They are accusing each other of financial impropriety, with Barbara claiming her ex-husband is guilty of ‘embezzlement’ and suggesting he is attempting a ‘boondoggle’ to change tax arrangements, while David claims she took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas.”

    I always got irritated when people brought up that site to discredit anything I'd put up on Facebook , it seemed rather ironic and stupid to me, looks like my reservations about them were right after all

    I like how he was funneling money into his fat hooker sexcapades and most likely personal pan pizzas so he could watch Sunday Football without getting booted for ordering waters.
