‘Fact Checkers’ at Snopes Attempt to Bail Out Stacey Abrams from Armed Black Panthers Story



By: Matthew Boyle
5 Nov 2018

The so-called “fact checkers” at Snopes have reached out to Breitbart News in an openly partisan attempt to wash away the story of armed members of the New Black Panther Party campaigning for the Democrat gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Stacey Abrams.

Over the weekend, Breitbart News–among other media outlets–published explosive photographs of armed Black Panthers campaigning for Abrams, holding up her campaign sign while also holding up various guns. In the story, Breitbart News included a quote from the campaign of her GOP opponent, Brian Kemp, calling on her to denounce the radicals campaigning for her.

The story went viral. Many other national outlets and outlets across Georgia, including a local CBS News affiliate, picked it up and carried the damning images of Abrams’ radical supporters. Since then, President Donald Trump held a rally in Macon, Georgia, for Kemp and the latest polls in the race show Kemp leading Abrams by as many as 12 points.

On Monday, a self-identified “reporter” for Snopes, Bethania Palma, reached out to Breitbart News with a series of questions about the Black Panther report. None of the questions implies anything was inaccurate about the report Facebook relies on Snopes as an official “fact checker” to detect fake news and misinformation on the platform, along with a small group of other primarily left-wing organizations including Politifact.

snopes was begun by a husband wife team.  It used to be pretty balance. SHe was a well know Let Wing Blogger and he was much more conservative.  They got divorced and the company snopes became the exwife left wing bloggers private domain.  It no longer is the reliable fact check it once was in the good old days of dial up. 

Facebook also uses the southern poverty law center to determine who is spreading hate speech (and what hate speech is according to their definition)

Of course, .. it's been awhile, but, I do not believe they are all that honest, either, OR unbiased!  Sad
