Founder of Left-Wing Website ‘Snopes’ Admits to Plagiarizing Dozens of Articles (Details)

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

Snopes is considered a fact-checking website by lefties and the mainstream media. That’s because the website refuses to acknowledge the truth, while merely agreeing with Democrats on every single issue.

In other words, Snopes is a liberal advocacy outlet – plain and simple.

On Sunday evening a bombshell was dropped about the CEO/Founder of the company.

Check this out, via The Daily Wire:

The CEO and co-founder of Snopes, an outlet that purports to publish “original, investigative reporting” and fact checks, admitted that he plagiarized dozens of articles.

According to an investigation by BuzzFeed, between 2015 and 2019, the outlet’s co-founder David Mikkelson wrote and published dozens of articles containing plagiarized content from major news outlets, including The Guardian and the Los Angeles Times. Inquiries from BuzzFeed prompted an internal review, which confirmed that Mikkelson had published 54 articles with plagiarized material.

“The articles include such topics as same-sex marriage licenses and the death of musician David Bowie,” BuzzFeed reports.


Snopes executives issued a statement condemning Mikkelson for his lapse in judgment.

“Plagiarism undermines our mission and values, full stop,” the statement reads. “It has no place in any context within this organization. We invite readers to let us know here if they find any other examples of plagiarized content so that we can apply the same treatment as above.”
