U.S.With the Democratic primary debates in full swing, many fact-checking websites are preparing to review candidates statements for accuracy. Thankfully, Snopes, the most unbiased fact-checking website ever, has found a way to expedite their evaluation process.
Since their original founding in 1957 by the KGB, Snopes has gained a reputation for objectively reporting what someones secret motivations probably were, and what they probably really meant when they said something. More recently, they have perfected the art of determining whether a satirical article is hilarious, left-leaning comedy or divisive, conservative-leaning fake news.
As part of their ongoing goal of being able to rush to judgment as quickly as possible, Snopes published a pre-approval of all future statements made by candidates during the Democratic debates.
While we understand there may be some disagreements among progressive candidates on certain issues, we know that nobody who shares our worldview would ever say anything factually untrue, Snopes explains in their article.
Snopes also clarified that in the event a candidate does say anything that sounds untrue/conservative, they will automatically conclude that the individual had pure intentions and meant something completely different. As a very last resort, they may change a particular rating to mixed, assuming some context was missing.
At publishing, Snopes had also released a fact-check for all future statements by President Trump, rating them all as False.
I want to see how they fact check, “I don’t believe you’re a racist, but you should apologize for all your racist activities”.
I’m also curious has other gotcha attacks up her sleave.
So much for the last shred of credibility they might still have possessed...
The best satire is indistinguishable from the truth.
How is it that postings from the Babylon Bee can continue to be posted without the, supposedly required, sarcasm tag when John Semmens was forced to put that label on his work even though it was always labeled from the beginning?
Good Lord Bab Bee hits the nail on the head!
They have left the Onion in the dust!
Snopes is not what it used to be either.
They “know”, as we all do, that Democrats would never make a false statement. (/s)
“... the most unbiased fact-checking website ever...”
Dangit! I keep forgetting to look to see if it’s Babylon Bee. It reads too much like reality.
“Sarcasm!” (said in Jon Lovitz’s “Acting!” voice)
Trump will be defeated, by all these candidates!
John Semmons’ works lost some of their smack when the disclaimer was put in the titles.
How might Snopes have defended her claim about being bused to a segregated school in Berkeley, even though the school had been integrated for years?
I’m thinking something like “well, she was the only black student in her classroom for 5 minutes back in 1972.”
Someone on FR defended her. Turns out while the high school had been integrated for a couple of decades, the elementary school only integrated the year before she was bused.
Still, what a losing platform! Go with that Kamala, take the rest down with you.
Snopes deserves this after attacking the Babylon Bee as a “Fake News” site
Right at the top of the page!
They tell like it is!”
“Fake news you can trust, delivered straight to your inbox.
Snopes was discredited YEARS ago as a couple and their cat, and since they have divorced
Posting anything that bears their mark as a valued source should immediately be accompanied with a sarcasm tag and anyone who takes their “opinion” as valid is at best being led astray
That is all...
Snopes is a fake fact-checker.
