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