    Sorry to disagree, my dear. This notion that Snopes is left-leaning is pure speculation. Snopes catches false stories on the left and right. Not their fault that loones on the fringe right make up far more GARBAGE stories.

    That don't count?

    It was cheating and if you ain't cheating you ain't trying.
    Uh...no. No, none of those do "count", as they are all examples of things that actually happened. Although your biased slant on the events is noted. However, none of that has anything to do with made up "news".

    When you have some response beyond red herrings, I'm sure will all be interested to read it.

    That there were MANY PEOPLE POINTING THIS OUT THE ENTIRE TIME, and the results proved that those "fake people" we're correct... Let me guess, that only further proves either or both that :
    A) they were Russian agents anyway
    B) the fact that they were right is only further proof that they are fake.
    Still has nothing to do with the topic at hand. My you really do want to cahnge the subject, don't you? I guess you realise just how much those fake news stories affected public opinion.
    Thanks from the watchman

    Bottom line it's not a reliable source.

    Of course not. There are no reliable fact checkers, right?

    So...we should disbelieve Snopes, when they debunked the idea that Trump originally planned a trip to Red Square as part of his Victory Tour?

    After all, Snopes is unreliable, so anything they say is false obviously isn't, right?

    No, it is exactly to the subject at hand, the MSM was publishing fake polls, fake stories and more as fact... trump just had a way to get the media to expose themselves as fake news just as they call everyone not pushing their dogma as fake news... but, the numbers show it, the MSM is hemorrhaging viewership because nobody really trusts them anymore, for exactly the reasons I cited.

    You expose yourself lying enough tines people stop trusting you even when you tell the truth.

    No, just because snores is unreliable does not mean everything they say is automatically false, more like just because the crazy cat lady says it does not make it automatically true.

    And how does one determine if the fact check is "accurate"?
