I subscribe to an organization, 2nd Vote, which looks into companies, organizations and rates them on conservative standards: 2nd Amendment, environment, marriage, life, education, immigration, religious liberty.
2nd Vote rates each organization, company on each of these standards with a 1 to 5, 1 being the lowest and 5 the highest in each conservative standard. If no information can be found for the organization on a particular standard a simple grey check mark is applied for that particular standard’s outcome. Then the organization is rated overall with the average of it’s scores on each of the standards.
In addition to the ratings, 2nd Vote also lists each standard and explains the reasoning behind the rating for the organization, i.e., ‘donates to Planned Parenthood’.
Here’s an example of a 2nd Vote rating for Facebook:
Now, that is just the preliminary for my post. Let’s get on with it.
Snopes has been around at least since the early 2000’s. The site gives the scoop on urban legends and now on political stories that circle the internet. They’ve always been a little left leaning but have become more so, for instance, stating that the Orlando Muslim shooter had no political leanings when he was actually a registered Democrat.
The owner of Snopes is now in a legal battle with other owners who bought into the company at the time of the owner’s divorce. Wifey sold her shares to these other owners. The charges are that the owner has been living lavishly on fraudulently obtained funds from Snopes. He married an escort from Las Vegas and funded his lavish honeymoon with Snopes funds. The result is that possibly Snopes may go belly up.
Too bad. Facebook had contracted with Snopes to factcheck Facebook posts for accuracy. And many on Facebook are complaining that their conservative posts are not permitted.
Snopes started a Go Fund Me page in July and has raised over $600k. The owner says he needs it for operations of Snopes.
My opinion: I hope it goes under. Most liberals end up in fraud, indecency, and crime. Let this be another that can’t survive its own filth.
