Stay classy, Snopes.

Snopes is partisan now. Just thought y'oughta know.

Snopes is a well-known fact-checking site that looks at "rumors, urban legends, myths and misinformation." That includes stories that involve politics. Yesterday the top story on the site was a fact check of claims that Democratic Representatives Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Keith Ellison refused to give a standing ovation to widow Carryn Owens during a joint session of Congress.

Initially, the site listed that claim as unproven but then changed it's rating to false. There was a problem, though. The claim wasn't false, at least not if you noted the caveats made by the people making the claim.

It appears that Snopes has abandoned principle and fallen back on the usual Lefty rules-lawyering, goalpost moving, SHUT UP! argumentation we have come to expect from Left leaning partisans.

Fake news at its finest.

The Deplorably Fake Phantom
