Snopes Fact-Checker EXPOSED As a Failed Liberal Blogger and Downright FRAUD

 

By Steven H Ahle

Snopes started out fact checking news of the weird and eventually tried to remake itself as a political fact checking site.  But now it has been exposed as a fraud.  The main fact checker is   Kim Lacapria, who was formerly with Inquisitr, a site known for publishing fake quotes and hoaxes.  Lacapria was a huge disaster as a writer with many of her stories getting just 10 to 20 shares.  She was a vitriolic far left wing blogger.  While at Inquisitr she described herself as an openly left leaning liberal.

In her articles, she described Bill Clinton as one of the greatest presidents of all time and called Tea Party members as Teahadists.

Lacapria’s “fact checking” comes with a far left leaning ideology.  Take a recent article for example.  She said that comparisons between Carter’s moratorium against Iranians is totally different from Trump’s suggestion of banning Muslims from entry into the United States until we have a real way of vetting who we are letting into the country.  She described Carter’s actions as a security measure taken as a last resort.  She ignores that the United States is experiencing terror attacks right here in this country, which a reasonable person would want to keep out more terrorists.

Jimmy Carter also deported  14,768 Iranians.  Considering the number of terror attacks committed by refugees or the children of refugees (Orlando, Boston Marathon bombing, Ft Hood 1 and 2, Chattanooga recruitment center shooting, the San Bernardino shootings) would make admitting unvetted refugees a security issue.  Remember, at least two of the Paris terrorists were refugees.

Lacapria even did a fact check on Omar Mateen’s democratic voter registration.  In that article she argued that just because he was a registered democrat, didn’t mean he was actually a democrat.

Popular myth-busting website Snopes originally gained recognition for being the go-to site for disproving outlandish urban legends -such as the presence of UFOs in Haiti or the existence of human-animal hybrids in the Amazon jungle.

Recently, however, the site has tried to pose as a political fact-checker. But Snopes’ “fact-checking” looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton and it’s political “fact-checker” describes herself as a liberal and has called Republicans “regressive” and afraid of “female agency.”

Snopes’ main political fact-checker is a writer named Kim Lacapria. Before writing for Snopes, Lacapria wrote for Inquisitr, a blog that — oddly enough — is known for publishing fake quotes and even downright hoaxes as much as anything else.

She described herself as “openly left-leaning” and a liberal. She trashed the Tea Party as “teahadists.” She called Bill Clinton “one of our greatest” presidents. She claimed that conservatives only criticized Lena Dunham’s comparison of voting to sex because they “fear female agency.”

She once wrote: “Like many GOP ideas about the poor, the panic about using food stamps for alcohol, pornography or guns seems to have been cut from whole cloth–or more likely, the ideas many have about the fantasy of poverty.” (A simple fact-check would show that food stamp fraud does occur and costs taxpayers tens of millions.)

Lacapria even accused the Bush administration of being “at least guilty of criminal negligience” in the September 11 attacks. (The future “fact-checker” offered no evidence to support her accusation.)
