    Default Who really controls Snopes?

    Some say George Soros has his meat hooks in it up to his socialist ears. I think we may hear more soon on the subject in the next few weeks. That, if true would be a poke in the eye for the LOOK IT UPPERS. Me? I heard it while looking for Pamprin at the local HEB.

    Just looking to help swab out the trap on the sewer line.

    it doesn't really matter what the political leanings of the creator of the site are. it's a fact-checking site that shows orgins of stories and explains how they are either true or false. that's like complaining about the political leanings of merrian-webster dictionary writers.
    This is where you post something no one else cares about.

    It was presented as a question, I'd like to know who all has a equity interest in snopes. They seem left handed.

    Why not just read for yourself at their website?

    The snopes.com web site is (and always has been) a completely independent, self-sufficient entity wholly owned by its operators, Barbara and David Mikkelson, and funded through advertising revenues. Neither the site nor its operators has ever received monies from (or been engaged in any business or editorial relationship with), any sponsor, investor, partner, political party, religious group, business organization, government agency, or any other outside group or organization.

    Barbara Mikkelson is a Canadian citizen and as such cannot vote in U.S. elections, register an affiliation with a U.S. political party, or donate to any U.S. political campaign or candidate. David Mikkelson is an American citizen whose participation in U.S. politics has never extended beyond periodically exercising his civic duty at the ballot box. As FactCheck confirmed in April 2009, David is a registered independent who has never donated to, or worked on behalf of, any political campaign or party. The Mikkelsons are wholly apolitical, vastly preferring their quiet scholarly lives in the company of their five cats to any political considerations.
