Wrong... we're just not as STUPID as you libtards to believe a couple of old burnt out hippie leftists...Republicans hate snopes because it consistently shoots down their propagandaYou obviously haven't checked the boards and blogs. A disturbing number took it, and some are still taking it, as fact. When confronted with the truth a surprising number said, " well, can you really believe snopes?" It's a sad reflection on the state of political discourse amongst those who would rather hate than think.You really care what cons are laughing about?
It's a joke, sure a few think it's real, but I doubt many actually do.
Snopes.com is a Scam >> Four Winds 10 - Truth WindsSnopes.com is a Scam
For the past few years snopes.com: Urban Legends Reference Pages has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell all final word' on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind snopes.com. Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby.
David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the Website about 13 years ago - and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation? The reason for the questions - or skepticims - is a result of snopes.com claiming to have
the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues. I can personally vouch for that complaint.
Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are jewish - very Democratic (party) and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative. There has been much criticism lately over the internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson's liberalism revealing itself in their website findings.. Gee, what a shock?
