Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Snopes.com, also known as the Urban Legends Reference Pages, was one of the first online fact-checking websites. It is a resource for validating and debunking such stories in American popular culture. Snopes ownership has said that the site receives more complaints of liberal bias than conservative bias, but insists that the same debunking standards are applied to all political urban legends. In 2012, FactCheck.org reviewed a sample of Snopes’ responses to political rumors regarding George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, and Barack Obama, and found them to be free from bias in all cases. Critics of the site have made the false claim that the website is funded by billionaire philanthropist George Soros, which has been debunked many times as they are strictly funded through advertising. Finally, MBFC has an article detailing why we rate Snopes least biased that you can view here. Overall, we rate Snopes least biased and high for factual reporting. (7/10/2016) Updated (10/18/2017)
