Any sort of fact checking MUST be part of some liberal hippie agenda! Right? Psyche! "We're not going to let our campaign be decided by fact checkers" - says people who didn't win. Well there's your truth. It's quite obvious. People don't want to hear the facts. They prefer living in lala land and that their miserable lives aren't their fault. It's so easy to sum up the blank statements some teapublicans would say. When given facts, they'd rather pretend it doesn't exist and go on with their conspiracies and rants. Self proclaiming republicans complaining about welfare people being richer than them is pretty sad.
Snopes Exposed? Netlore Archive: Is Snopes.com biased and unreliable?
Forwarded email alleges that the urban legend debunking site Snopes.com is 'owned by a flaming liberal' who is 'in the tank for Obama' and can't be trusted to provide reliable information. It's doubly ironic that such a scurrilous attack should be mounted against the oldest and most respected fact-checking site on the Internet at the denouement of an election year (2008) marked from beginning to end by unrestrained smear-mongering, much of which it fell to Snopes.com to debunk. Barbara Mikkelson is a Canadian citizen, and as such cannot vote in U.S. elections or contribute to political campaigns. In a statement to FactCheck.org, David Mikkelson said his "sole involvement in politics" is voting on election day. In 2000 he registered as a Republican, documents provided to FactCheck.org show, and in 2008 Mikkelson didn't declare a party affiliation at all. Says Mikkelson: "I've never joined a party, worked for a campaign, or donated money to a candidate" (source: FactCheck.org).
