    found same story reported elsewhere.........

    As for Young and LaCapria, a discerning eye can easily judge their politics. Young ran for “U.S. congress in Hawaii as a Libertarian in 2004, during which she handed out ‘Re-Defeat Bush’ cards and condoms stamped with the slogan ‘Don’t get sc[****]d again’,” reports the Mail. And the Daily Caller informs that LaCapria “describes herself as a liberal and has called Republicans ‘regressive’ and afraid of ‘female agency’”; she also labeled the Tea Party “teahadists.”

      Too bad!

      There's a real opportunity to create an unbiased(or less biased) fact checking/news source.

      I'm guessing the eventual answer will be an AI toolset that will audit and score news, with the AI toolset being audited as well....checking the checkers who check the checkers.

      Shame about Snopes.....sounds like the guy is living the dream.

      Relatively well paid, a freaky wife, and the power to bring light to the truth.

        Who were the fake / funny POTUS candidates this year? A character from a cartoon TV series?
        I remember I believe it was 1972 or so, there were pin on buttons that said Vote for Archie Bunker!

        ( all in the family star)

          Well, HAD the power to bring light to the truth. After this his credibility might suffer.

          Here's the "freaky wife":

                1st wife.....she's loco going for the throat.

                I was referring to his more recent 2nd wife....that will end in pain also I'm sure......but will probably be a lot more fun.

                Wasted opportunity.

                They could have dumped their cashflow into AI fact checking tools and iterated into a hybrid Consumer Reports for News mashed up with Wikipedia.

                Something worthwhile.

                A weapon against the power of propaganda...nope.......he goes for the hookers.

                  Thinking with the wrong head...he should put a snopes post on that...TRUE.....it happened.

                  There r other fact sites other there besides snopes. The best is your own brain.

                      If they can sort out the ownership issues I am not sure why it would have any effect on the site at all.
                      I just feel sorry for these people, being so viscious and vindictive in their divorce.

                        "she also labeled the Tea Party “teahadists.”"

                        ​Teahadists. Damn, I like that. New vocabulary item added.

                          There's only 1 Wikipedia.

                          Only 1 Consumer Reports.

                          Only 3 credit reporting agencies.......

                          It's like Highlander, there can be only 1.....or at most, 3.

                            Snopes has always leaned to the left.....anti conservative. If one reads the articles which ate granted on a right leaning site,....you see evidence of the humans behind SNOPES as being anti-conservatve
