    Cool For those who rely upon snope's

    Snopes Writer Refuses To Acknowledge Glaring Falsehood In Fact Check On Viral Photo Of Immigrant Girl
    Annie Caputo

    A flagrantly inaccurate Snopes fact check rating in the immigration debate has gone unnoticed and uncorrected for weeks, despite multiple attempts by The Daily Caller to notify the site of its erroneous reporting.
    Kim LaCapria, a seasoned Snopes fact checker, produced a false “fact-check” regarding the use of photographer John Moore’s picture of a crying Honduran child to depict family separations at the Southern border.
    The claim Ms. LaCapria fact-checks is “News media outlets falsely reported that a photograph of a crying toddler depicted a small girl separated from her mother at the border.”
    LaCapria finds that the claim is “mostly false,” saying the media outlets in question “consistently reported that the young girl was never separated from her mother.” She cites excerpts from articles published by the Washington Post and CNN to support her findings, none of which include explicit statements that the child and her mother had been separated.
    However, other articles posted by both of these outlets contain language that directly states or implies the separation of the llegal-immigrant mother and child in the photo. Further, sources including NY Daily News, BusinessInsider, Buzzfeed, and NBC have all published content using the photograph of the crying girl to discuss the separation of children at the border or saying she was separated from her mother after the photograph was taken.
    The Daily Caller reached out to LaCapria with a list of media outlets which had directly stated the girl in the photo was separated from her mother less than two weeks ago, but did not receive a response.
    LaCapria did not respond to a second inquiry from TheDC asking her how she arrived at her incorrect “fact-check.”
    A more accurate fact-check of John Moore’s photograph is available – completed by the Daily Caller’s Amber Athey shortly after news broke of the truth behind the photograph.

    Athey’s article clearly presents the numerous occasions in which the media reported false information behind the photograph, including the separation of the mother and child as well as the purpose for their entry into the country.LaCapria is no stranger to negligent “fact-checks,” having published numerous posts that have been criticized for their blatant bias toward Democrats and the liberal agenda. She outwardly identifies as a liberal, and has declared herself as “openly left-leaning” in the past.

    I dont use snopes at all anymore, they had OBama giving Iran 400,000,000 as false, then they finally took it down. Theyve been called out on other lies but its always blogs that call them out, because the liberal media will not.

    Theres other fact check sites

    The snopes monkey site. Note: My use of the word "monkey" in this instance is not intended as a racial slur. I have no idea what the racial makeup of the snopes site is.
