If Snopes Had ANY Credibility, They Lost it Now

Snopes is the online “fact checking” site that many people turn to in order to find out whether things are true, urban legends, fake news and the like.  People take this site as an objective reference, a final word on truth and imagine it as some think tank trying to set the record straight.

Wrong.

The fact is that snopes is run by a husband and wife team of radical leftist progressives from the San Fernando valley in California with absolutely NO background in investigation and simply google the answers to questions and post them as truth.

Here’s a picture of your internet sleuths David and Barbara Mikkelson:

snopes

Crack team there…look at that fat cat investigating David’s hair.  New article on snopes “Social Justice Warrior’s hair made out of cat nip: CONFIRMED”

These two crusaders not only start and end their with google searches but with their limited information and their inability to process it often times just cover up the truth with lies.  There are numerous accounts of snopes just covering up for the Obama administration and the progressive agenda as a whole.

One need only search Benghazi to find out the snopes duo carrying Hillary Clinton’s water.  Or when Obama encouraged illegals to vote assuring them that no one is coming to their houses to deport them.  The Mikkelson’s said, well, the WHOLE interview shows different.   It DOESN’T, the whole interview simply shows Obama trying to walk away from what he just said but not doing a very good job of it.

But a lot of people all ready knew about he Mikkelson’s being a pair of nobody’s lacking any credential for serious investigations.  I mean, everyone has google so what do we need snopes for if that is all they do?

They not only want to debunk things that, in doing so, help their leftist cohorts in DC but they want to actually contribute to the misinformation against their enemies.  Namely trying to undermine President Elect Donald Trump.  Even when he is exonerated with concerns of fake stories about him the Mikkelsons don’t say that the rumors were lies or false, they say they are unconfirmed or mixed.

My main problem with snopes is that if you try and find one instance of a false report concerning Trump supporters harassing a minority, a Muslim or a Hillary Clinton supporter you find NOTHING.  And it’s not like the stories aren’t out there.

I mean when Yasmin Seweid, a student at Baruch College in New York claimed three Trump supporters attacked her and called her a terrorist and tried to take off her hijab, the left stream media jumped all over it and didn’t even use the word “alleged” when reporting the incident.

The Mikkelsons were probably giggling with glee as Trump supporters were getting bad press and didn’t cover it at all.

Yasmin Seweid’s story unraveled so quickly that even snopes could have probably uncovered the truth if they took half a second from being political hacks and looked into it.  The truth finally came out and Yasmin Seweid has been arrested for filing a false police report.  It seems she was late for curfew and made the whole thing up.

Snopes is silent.  Just like it is silent when it comes to other fake stories of Trump supporters harassing people.

A student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette falsified a story that she was attacked for wearing a hijab. Police quickly determined that she had fabricated the story.

A California community was outraged over a student who was passing out “deportation notices.” Of course, it was just a poorly timed joke, not a hate crime.  Turns out the kid handing them out was a Clinton supporter.

Or how about this guy:

Nope again, this is an anti trump filmmaker who just happens to specialize in special effects and makeup.

This next one resolved itself pretty quickly and therefore snopes didn’t have time to get involved and try and cover it up.  It does go to show the onslaught of fake stories and not only the willingness of the media to report it as truth but at points be complicit in the lies.

Suffice it to say Ms. Harvard, a reporter based in New York City with .Mic, quickly backtracked on her claims and the UIPD chalked it up a work of fiction.

I actually love it when police call on these fakers and how quickly they scatter.

The girl who posted her fake sob story online quickly deleted all her social media accounts and avoided the cops.

Then there’s those who just want to go all in until they realize that, like Yasmin Seweid, doing so has consequences.  That’s why this next person just SAID she filed charges without actually doing so.

And then there are all those fake stories about waitresses getting mean things written on their receipts instead of tips and so forth.  Nearly ALL are frauds and fakes and lies for people to push their anti trump agenda, or to get a little fame or to bilk idiots out of money who feel sorry for them because they believe the lies.

You would think that snopes would look into a couple and try to see if any are legitimate.

Nope.  But you want destroy a tear jerking Christmas story about a dying boy…they’ll be there.

I don’t know if the following story is true, it’s made the rounds over the past couple of days so you might have heard of it.  A dying boy wishes to see Santa Claus before he passes so a nurse at a hospital in Tennesse calls up a part time Santa, Eric Schmitt-Matzen, to come.

Long story short, Schmitt-Matzen comes, talks to the boy who asks if he is going to go to heaven and Santa responds: “When you get there, you tell ’em you’re Santa’s Number One elf, and I know they’ll let you in.”

The boy dies in Santa’s arms.

Apparently for Christmas haters like David and Barbara Mikkelson this story has to be false.

You know what, maybe it is and maybe it isn’t and if Santa is more a Krampus and is trying to pull some con then he should be exposed.  My issue goes back to how complete inept and unqualified the Mikkelsons are to tell anyone what is true and what is not.

Schmitt-Matzen told the story to the Knoxville News Sentinel.  He left out the names of the family out of respect and the name of his friend who is a nurse at her request.  The Mikkelsons decide to call two hospitals and get to the bottom of it.

Though they mention it on snopes I don’t think they really understand how HIPA works.  Hospitals aren’t going to tell them ANYTHING about a dying boy if his parents don’t want it released, especially not two hacks from California who run a blog.  The Mikkelsons are taking that HIPA silence to cast doubt on the entire story.

Even though WBIR-TV did some ACTUALLY leg work on the story in order to verify the key points like an electronic paper trail detailing events and facts dating back in October, snopes refuses to speak on that in their article because it is their intention to mislead people into believing what they, the Mikkelsons, want them to believe.

But don’t take my word for it, here’s the WBIR-TV report:

Facts verified in Santa’s hospital visit story

Another thing that I like that leads to the veracity of this story is that Eric Schmitt-Matzen isn’t running away from the story and folding under the scrutiny that so many of the aforementioned “victims” did.

Snopes wants you to doubt this Christmas story.  They want you to doubt that Trump will be a good president, that Obama was a train-wreck and that Hillary was a monster.

When your entire claim to fame is that you find out the truth but in reality you are just novice political hacks from California, no one should take you seriously.

That is why you must disregard snopes as a reference and seek out the truth for yourself.  Lest you just believe what the Mikkelsons want you to believe regardless of whether it’s true or not.
