Truth Detector Lies: Snopes.com Released False Information To Cover Up Dems

Many people watched President Trump’s address to Congress on Tuesday but the address isn’t what made the biggest splash in media. The two democrats who sat during a standing ovation for Carryn Owens did.

During a standing ovation for Carryn Owens, widow of fallen Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, two democrats opted to sit which many deemed disrespectful. The two politicians were hounded with comments until popular myth-busting site, Snopes, supposedly disproved it.

However, Snopes.com offered up illegitimate and false facts to cover up their fellow liberals, Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. What Snopes failed to mention was there were two standing ovations for the widow. The left-leaning website tried to cover up the dishonoring act by using a picture from the first standing ovation in which they did stand.

Snopes attempted to use the first ovation as a way to cover up their lack of respect but when they were discovered, edited their information. Unfortunately, when Snopes largely edited their article, they didn’t even use the normal editor’s note which is contrary to journalistic standards.

The two fact-checkers for this ‘myth’ was Kim LaCapria and David Mikkelson. LaCapria is a well-known leftist who according to Daily Caller has a large trail of misleading facts. Mikkelson is actually Snopes’ co-founder who has been accused of embezzling company money according to Daily Caller.

So even with two fact-checkers on the story, they still totally missed it. No, not missed it, but clearly tried to misdirect it.  But they aren’t the only ones who were disrespectful, this guy looks like he’s sleeping!
