    Like any information on the 'Net....one has to apply some common sense.  There is certainly a lot of credibility created when one uses a site name like "FactChecker", etc.  It becomes a foregone conclusion that the site has the credibile ability to prove a given fact.  Those who embrace such reasoning sooner or later get burned. Snopes is a good example....once considered a reference until it was uncovered that they had no special talent except pigeoning hole issues which questioned some liberal issues.  The best source for anything is the original source in most cases if one can dig deep enough to find it.  Otherwise, I would say that we should all be cautious as to what and who we believe on any given issue...especially if you intend to hang your own credibilty on it.  ~WB
