Facebook’s new ‘fact checker’ for fake news under suspicion for embezzlement and dumping wife to marry a porn star

Facebook’s new ‘fact checker’ for fake news under suspicion for embezzlement and dumping wife to marry a porn star

For years most publishers on the internet and in the alternative media have come to the conclusion that Snopes.com is little more than a propaganda site for the progressive and liberal parties.  In fact, it appears that around the start of this year’s election, the website began moving away from the debunking of urban myths and laid its claim as a political ‘fact checker’.

Now their ‘fact checking’ crusade is being given credibility by the social media site Facebook, who themselves were taken to task earlier in the election cycle for burying conservative based news in favor of the Washington Post and New York Times.

Yet when it comes to credibility, perhaps Facebook needs to think twice after hiring Snopes to becomes one of their ‘fact checkers’ for ‘fake news’ as it is being reported that one of the co-founders of the site is now under suspicion and accusation for embezzlement, and dumping his wife for a former porn star.

A DailyMail.com investigation reveals that Snopes.com’s founders, former husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson, are embroiled in a lengthy and bitter legal dispute in the wake of their divorce.

He has since remarried, to a former escort and porn actress who is one of the site’s staff members.

They are accusing each other of financial impropriety, with Barbara claiming her ex-husband is guilty of ’embezzlement’ and suggesting he is attempting a ‘boondoggle’ to change tax arrangements, while David claims she took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas. – Daily Mail

The entire concept of the going after the alternative media as ‘fake news’ was forged out of the failed attempt by the mainstream media to help elect Hillary Clinton win the White House.  And in fact, it was long-standing media sources such as the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, ABC, and NBC who were outed as publishing and reporting direct news stories handed to them by the Clinton campaign without any type of journalistic verification.

There is a reason why radio stations such as Air America, and newspapers such as the New York Times are on their way to the dustbins of history.  Because the reality of news reporting today is that corporate media is little more than a paid propaganda mill for controlled news and disinformation, while it is the alternative media that is now providing the public an objective look at the truth.
