Snopes is under attack
Posted by Charles II on September 23, 2015
The People’s Cube, a right-wing fake news/”humor” site that confuses hate with humor has accused the people who run Snopes of actual crimes:
Snopes.com owners Barbara and David Mikkelson
were detained by police today after an unrelated investigation of a Snopes.com editor lead police onto a paper trail of corruption, bribery, and fraud…
This is being circulated by right-wingers, along with a Photoshopped picture of David Mikkelson supposedly being perp-walked. I do not see any clear indication on the site that it is a humor site.
Barbara Mikkelson is one of my heroes. Snopes is one of the few efforts that have helped to slow down the lie machine. I am saddened that things have fallen to this point.
The lie is being propagated by, among others:
Are right-wingers really this gullible?
