HOOKERS, LIES AND FRAUD': SNOPES Going Under?
« on: July 26, 2017, 07:17:42 PM »
I swear, this reads like a week at a DNC retreat. Oh God, are these ugly people, or what?
Well worth the skim through, Snopes is exactly what I suspected they are, a bunch of losers.
You'll have to click the link to see the rest of the walking syphilis repositories.





So-called “fact-checking” website Snopes.com is reportedly on the verge of financial collapse since one if its founders has been accused of using company cash to fund his contentious divorce and to pay for fancy vacations with his new wife, a former escort and porn actress.

Now, the Daily Mail reports, Proper Media, an advertising and Internet services company, has filed a lawsuit against David in California. A court hearing is scheduled for August.

In 2016, the owners of Proper Media bought 50 percent of Bardav Inc., a company launched by the Mikkelsons that owns Snopes. The owners took Barbara’s share of the company.

But now Proper Media claims David, in the last year, “engaged in a lengthy scheme of concealment and subterfuge to gain control of the company and to drain its profits.”

The Daily Mail reported, “[David] Mikkelson counters that Proper Media – which Snopes also contracts for advertising work – has been holding the website ‘hostage’ by ‘withholding advertising revenue.'”

David pleaded for financial donations this week, saying Snopes.com “is in danger of closing its doors” because Proper Media isn’t releasing ad revenue or giving up control of advertising on the website.

“Our legal team is fighting hard for us, but, having been cut off from all revenue, we are facing the prospect of having no financial means to continue operating the site and paying our staff (not to mention covering our legal fees) in the meanwhile,” David said.

As WND reported, one of Snopes’ leading fact-checkers is a former sex-and-fetish blogger who described her routine as smoking pot and posting to Snopes.com. Kim LaCapria is disclosed to be a former sex-blogger who called herself “Vice Vixen.”

Her blog had “a specific focus on naughtiness, sin, carnal pursuits, and general hedonism and bonne vivante-ery.”

LaCapria’s day-off activities she said on another blog were: “played scrabble, smoked pot, and posted to Snopes.'”

“That’s what I did on my day “on,” too,” she added.

David Mikkelson has told the the Daily Mail that Snopes does not have a “standardized procedure” for fact-checking “since the nature of this material can vary widely.”

I was in touch with them about 10 years ago ... long story short at the time, I found out from them that they were a two person team that really never personally went out and researched or investigated a claim; it was merely opinion based on information they gathered from the internet.  I found them to be pretty worthless and unreliable.

Same here... and after finding numerous errors & outright bias in those dictionary-pedia sites, decided to keep my paper dictionary and encyclopedia.   My, oh my, history has changed so much in my lifetime, I'd have to unlearn and relearn everything to keep up with the times!   :ttoung:

Yeah, I remember the first time I read one of their so called "fact check" pieces, I about peed myself I was laughing so hard.
It was from that day forward I used them against every lib I could when they claimed it as a source to back up their nonsense.

Hmm...  Don't understand people driving without there head lights on in this day and age.  Be it day or night, for safety.  I start my vehicle and then I turn on my head lights day or night.  Been doing it for over 50 years.   In all my years of driving I have replace only one head light.

Hell, The Enquirer has a better track record, just ask Elvis and his alien wife.

If Dopes Snopes was a weekly paper, nobody would believe it.... but it's on the Internet, so it's gotta be true!   :scared:

The internet version of Weekly World News.

When libs start posting Snopes as proof I usually tell them to start posting information from the Marvel Universe, it's as reliable.
