Snopes Gets Punked With New Revelations In Wikileaks Emails About Hillary & NYT Collusion
The Washington Standard ^ | 01-03-2018 | Tim Brown

Snopes, the left leaning self-proclaimed "fact checker" that hires dominatrixes and former porn stars and hookers to do their "fact checking" has once again been debunked for covering for The New York Times and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

What's so great about this latest "punking" of Snopes is that it comes by way of Infowars and assertions they made more than a year ago about Hillary Clinton colluding with the New York Times by getting information in advance about negative stories that would have an impact on her.

"It is standard journalistic practice for reporters to ask the subjects of their news stories for comment before publishing, and Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman were doing their due diligence as professional journalists, said Frank Girardot, a former editor with the Los Angeles News Group and author of several true crime books," responded Snopes to Paul Joseph Watson's story on the collusion, and that assertion is correct, but contacting people for a response to a story and warning them of a potentially negative story coming out are two different things.  One is journalism and the other is collusion.

However, here's what Paul Joseph Watson tweeted out.

Notice, there is no questioning for a story, but rather a notification that a story was about to break.

Now, of course, everyone knows that Clinton and NYT were colluding to deceive the American people due to emails released by Wikileaks.

Then also of course, the NYT always contacts Trump and other conservatives before they publish a story about them too. Right? /s

The NY Times is in constant contact with all the major agencies of government, particularly DOD, CIA, FBI, and the White House, to discuss stories, what they can publish and what they should not.

No doubt that in her 30 years in Washington, Hillary Clinton came to know everyone coming and going at NY Times. That she would therefore have some moles and allies at the NY Times should be beyond doubt.

definition of “collusion” : a word used by the Fake News media to infer evidence of a crime by repeated suggestion, to a liberal, the word sounds dark and evil, unlike words such as “collaberation” or “sustainable”

A couple years ago someone on this forum tried to disprove what I had posted by claiming that snopes said it was not true.

Webster’s: Collusion - secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose. I chose the latter purpose:) https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/collusion

But I get what you mean about the mainstream using it in the sense of the former:)

This story doesn’t jive with my beliefs. I’m going to wait for snopes to fact check it before I trust it. I hope they fact check it soon so I can tell everyone it’s a lie. if not I’ll just assume the story is full of lies but I won’t have a reliable authority statement to send to all of my idiot Trump-loving relatives. So I really hope snopes fact checks it.

Sounds like one of my still learning sons (the youngest). The other two have fully developed political/cynical faculties.

There's hope for the little guy, but he's got work to do.

They don’t hire porn stars - they divorce the not-so-hot first wife and may the porn stars.
