Wait, you really do think his wife was lying that he was using funds from Snopes to pay for his hookers?

Baaahaaaaa

Liberals hate women and are the biggest suckers on earth.

His current hooker wife is currently employed by Snopes.

That is part of the reason he is being sued.

Its pretty obvious he is using company funds to pay for his sex.

Send him some more money you big dummies, he very well may have no role in the company come next Friday.

It does seem like he's putting in more time and effort trying to get a reaction than everyone else put together is spending reacting. So if it is trolling, it's not very good.

He doesn't seem to get that when he spews diarrhea all over a thread, people are less likely to bother reading them.

When I see 5 "This post is hidden" in a row, I don't bother clicking. You gotta use more restraint, Jerome.

OK, so fuck snopes and I hope it dies. Also Google.

So Google launched this "Fact Check" section on Google news to supposedly counter the whole fake news phenomenon (not the fake "fake news," but the actual fake news, mind you).

And snopes is one of the main sources they cite there, and what do they fucking do? They do this clickbait bullshit:

snopesbullshit.png

That's not isolated. It happens every day.

If those fuckers are actually going to try to milk this stuff for clicks by putting lies out there with a question mark attached, they are a vector for urban legends, not an inoculation. They can't play dumb and pretend they don't know that people are just going to elide the question mark and repeat any sensationalist bullshit that comes before it. The celebrity gossip sites like the "Gossip Cop" site there have more integrity than they do.

And certainly Google must have some lowly employee in a utility closet somewhere at least spot checking the sites they feature for veracity. Why haven't they bumped snopes for this shit?

Is snopes.com a menace to society?

Is Google knowingly pushing fake news in order to bolster its already obscenely bloated profits?

This question mark thing is fun! Can we can write whatever libellous shit we like so long as we remember to put a question mark at the end?

Necrorebumping this thread because I found this, which answers quite a few questions that you, like me, may have had.

Snopes.com and the Search for Facts in a Post-Fact World | WIRED



From the linkAt some point before Barbara left him, David began seeing a woman named Elyssa Young, whom he eventually married in late 2016. Today, Young works for Snopes as an administrative assistant but previously worked as a professional escort, something she’s been open about. In fact, in 2004, when Young ran for Congress in Hawaii on the Libertarian Party ticket, she wrote on her campaign pitch: “My background is in the adult entertainment and sex industry, so for once, you will get an honest person in office.” (Young did not respond to numerous requests for comment.)

Default Re: Snopes

I've noticed that there seems to be a somewhat organized effort by Trump supporters to discredit Snopes lately. In the past few weeks, I've seen lots of Facebook posts saying, in effect, "Don't trust Snopes; it's part of the Liberal conspiracy to hide the truth from you." All too often, the "evidence" they use to bolster their case is entirely fabricated.

Amusingly -- or sadly, depending on your outlook -- when I've clicked on the supporting links, they often say the exact opposite of what the person linking to them claims they say.

Which should be positive, almost scientific, support for Snopes for the 50.0% of the public that don't support Trump.

Weird, too, because over the past couple of weeks I've seen Snopes shoot down false assertions about the orange man himself.

Magahats shouting about stuff about Snopes being a Soros funded propaganda arm has been going on for awhile now. Here's some info about the meme that kicked it off:
