The truth is I don't know. It depends on which google search you read about Snopes. I know they have made some mistakes regarding what is true and what is false. They are reported to be somewhat biased toward the left, but other websites say that isn't true either.
This one is up in the air but I always use several different sources of "truth" before I draw any conclusions. I doubt there is any so called fact checking source that is 100% reliable.
Its my opinion they are a blatant lefty apologetics site. Tactics of poisoning the well, ad hom, anything it takes to discredit a source as opposed to finding truth.
It may seem blatant to a discerning person like you Phoenix but much of it is subtle and can pass as objective to the average person. Of course to the loony left wingers they will accept anything as truth long as it agrees with their view.
devalue true facts from conservative sources and share the silence of subjects the left doesn't report that allows the issues to be flagged as fake because it isn't verified against liberal sources.
They are definitely sharing the same biases that caused the left leaning news sites to not report Clinton's corruption, health problems, true bad state of the economy. End result - they inflate the "truth" rating of propaganda, devalue true facts from conservative sources and share the silence of subjects the left doesn't report that allows the issues to be flagged as fake because it isn't verified against liberal sources.
We have European and American news sites not reporting anything that hurts the liberal narrative, no matter the negative impact on society.

Or in the truly insane cases, refusing to report the racial description of terrorists out of fear that doing so is labeled racist. This has led to true atrocities enabled by liberal silence.

The amount of fallacies that snopes uses when doing their liberal apologetics is staggering. When something is true about a liberal, but that truth shows the liberal in a negative light, they go on a campaign to discredit the source.
What would be your basis to definitively, and accurately make that assessment? What are your tools to analyze, and validate their answers to questions?
Isn't it a lot like copying exam answers off the person in front of you when you don't have your own correct answer?
What is your litmus test for veracity?
Take the allegation that Russia won the election for Trump. Where is the evidence, how is it evaluated and actually traced to a Sine Qua Non to Russia. Some facts would be helpful. We know some facts.
CA, IL and NY voters were not in the least deviated from voting for Hillary Clinton. So what kind of mechanism can target just a few states, and not others. How did Russia or anyone get in the heads of voters to vote for Trump, yet not in democrat stronghold states?
How would Snopes find the truth? What resources do they have, and certainly unnamed intelligence sources without hard facts and evidence is just hearsay, or rumors.
The solution is that we need to recreate the real news agencies of the past. You know when Journalism was real, and news was reporting the events, rather than coloring it with opinions, and guesses.
We don't have NEWS anymore, so it is all fake by definition.
Snopes and politifact are a "protective layer" for the liberal media machine. Simple to say "blah blah blah is "verified" by an outside source." It's how they keep their sheep from straying too far from the plantation. There is no such thing as an unbiased source today; doubtful that there ever will be.

Why Is The Fake News Obsessed With Fake News?Fake news has been focusing quite a bit on alleged fake news. Fake politicians and fake ex-news personalities have come out of the woodworks to alert everyone of more possible fake news than the official fake news. What is the fake stream medias angle?
