BLOG: Fact Checking Snopes.com

When some fact checking outfit exposes political lie after lie that you tell, what do you do? You denounce them as a tool for the opposing camp. However, with www.snopes.com, you'd be wrong.

TO THOSE WHO DENOUNCE SNOPES.COM'S FACT CHECKING SERVICE...

You are so wrong about fact-checking site, www.Snopes.com

IN FACT, Reader's Digest, the most conservative magazine in the US, wrote a favorable piece on Snopes.com, but some, who hate how Snopes fact-checks on their emailed and blogged political lies, naturally denounce Snopes.

Yet, ALL the other fact checking sites say that Snopes.com IS legit and DOES tell the truth.

These are other fact checking sites that agree that snopes is not "controlled by the liberal agenda."

So how do you explain Readers Digest and all the COMPETING fact checker sites saying that Snopes.com IS legit?

Answer? You who say it is a left-wing tool, have been wrong all this time and Snopes IS a reliable source, according to far more authoritative sources than you are.
