Who Checks The Checkers?

Fact Checking is a big thing in the internet age. It’s most often used to debunk various hoaxes and urban legends, much as Mythbusters does on television. That does present a problem though…

XKCD - Snopes
Hmmm….So Who Does Make Sure Snopes Isn’t Lying?

Now I’m sure the owners and operators of Snopes.com, David and Barbara Mikkelson, are completely ethical, honest, and professional…but how would I fact check that belief? 😆

    A lot of people. That’s part of why XKCD’s cartoon is funny.

    All joking aside though, they’re fairly unbiased in what the research and report upon and they show all their research sources, both inline and as reference links so people can check the underlying bias of those sources.

    I just thought it was funny.
