Many times when the Snopes card is thrown down, the subject is politically neutral or the evidence is weak, so in the past I haven't questioned their credentials or cared that much. I wouldn't even know where to start. A brief search will tell you whatever you want to believe about their political slant or accuracy. What website checks the website that is supposed to be THE final answer?? The problem is, more and more, Snopes.com http://www.snopes.com/info/whatsnew.asp is being cited as the absolute truth on a wide range of stuff. A conversation ender that shuts down an argument, without any argument. My gut tells me they have an agenda but............ for all I know they are completely neutral and 100% on the money factual. Just like NBC or CBS or FOX or PBS or Lars Larson or Rachal Mado................. It's very useful having a nebulous all knowing entity that people don't question.
