  • Just some FYI...

    There was also some other facts that popped up back in about '00 where someone found out slanted things in a liberal way. I couldn't find that one (might not have looked long enough too, but I'm wore out today), but this one is just as good.

    For the past few years (http://www.snopescom/ 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. It is run by a husband and wife
    team - that's right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no
    team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a
    hobby. David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of
    California started the website about 13 years ago and they have no
    formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few
    years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but
    over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was
    behind it and did they have a selfish motivation?

    The reason for the questions - or skepticisms - is a result of <> claiming to have the bottom line facts
    to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong.
    Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really
    investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues.

    A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville
    hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash
    across the Internet, 'supposedly' the Mikkelson's claim to have
    researched this issue before posting their findings on
    <>. In their statement they claimed the corporate
    office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in
    fact nothing of the sort 'ever' took place. I personally contacted David
    Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to
    the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg's contact phone numbers -
    and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec's at State
    Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him about it.
    He never called Bud. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg that no one from <> ever contacted anyone with State Farm.

    Yet, <> issued a statement as the 'final
    factual word' on the issue as if they did all their homework and got to
    the bottom of things - not!

    Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are very Democratic (party)
    and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential
    election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that
    appears to be conservative. There has been much criticism lately over
    the Internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson's liberalism
    revealing itself in their website findings. Gee, what a shock?

    So, I say this now to everyone who goes to
    <> to get what they think to be the bottom line fact
    'proceed with caution.' Take what it says at face value and nothing
    more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to
    and read the sources for yourself. Plus, you can always Google a
    subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that's all
    the Mikkelson's do. After all, I can personally vouch from my own
    experience for their 'not' fully looking into things.

    I have found this to be true also! Many videos of Obama I tried to
    verify on Snopes and they said they were False. Then they gave their
    liberal slant! I have suspected some problems with snopes for some time
    now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is any
    subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder.

    Truth or Fiction, is a better source for verification, in my opinion.

    I have recently discovered that <> is
    owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. There
    are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can
    go to You tube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying
    these things. So you see, you cannot and should not trust
    <>, ever for anything that remotely resembles truth! I
    don't even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore.

    A few conservative speakers on Myspace told me about
    <>. A few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a
    little research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for
    myself that it is true. Anyway just FYI please don't use
    <> anymore for fact checking and make your friends
    aware of their political leanings as well. Many people still think <> is neutral and they can be trusted as
    factual. We need to make sure everyone is aware that that is a hoax in

          Yeah, I even caught them in one last year, but unfortunately I can't remember what it was about. Just bugs me that they're out there and people still think they should be the end-all for truthful answers.
