SNOPES EXPOSED For the past few years (has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell-all final word' on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know.

The reason for the questions - or skepticisms - is a result of claiming to have the bot ...

Meet David and Barbara Mikkelson the "so called" owners and managers of Join us and share: seems everything anyone posts there is always a "debunking" from snopes to try to discredit real researchers out here doing work. In case many of you dont know the Mikkelson's are zionists and very anti God. They are government shills sent to try to discredit the real truth about many issues and posts. They are anti God, pro abortion, pro homosexuality and anti truth. They try to discredit just about anything conspiracy related while keeping their liberal spin on true issues.

Snopes receives more complaints of liberal than conservative bias, but insists that it applies the same debunking standards to all political urban legends. FactCheck reviewed a sample of Snopes' responses to political rumors regarding George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, and found them to be free from bias in all cases. FactCheck noted that Barbara Mikkelson was a Canadian citizen (and thus unable to vote in US elections) and David Mikkelson was an independent who was once registered as a Republican. "You’d be hard-pressed to find two more apolitical people," David Mikkelson told them.for people who do not trust Try FactCheck
