    Snopes Paid to Push ‘Propaganda’ by Facebook, Former Editor Reveals

    no idea on the background of this site, but wow. *if* true FB is dead. even deader than it is now if that's possible.

    better backup all my stuff i value off of there. one day the login screen will have a big padlock on it.

    And it hasn't worked out too well....

    “They’ve essentially used us for crisis PR,” said Brooke Binkowski, former managing editor of Snopes, a factchecking site that has partnered with Facebook for two years. “They’re not taking anything seriously. They are more interested in making themselves look good and passing the buck … They clearly don’t care.”

    They've been harder on libertarians/ancaps than they've been on republicans...There are even still a slew of alt-right shitposter pages up and running.

    Once upon a time, Snopes was a good site for fact checking!

    those days are pretty much gone.

    one thing you can never buy back is your credibility.
