I had someone send me a forward the other day about Obama. I wanted to check the authenticity, so I looked at Snopes.com. Snopes isn’t the Holy Grail or anything, but they do a pretty good job researching and debunking a lot of myths.
Turns out the email I was forwarded (it was Obama snubbing Troops he visited in Iraq) was a bunch of crap.
Then, I looked at the stuff on Snopes about John McCain.
Turns out, there are 33 entries about Obama. 20 of them are untrue according to Snopes. 9 of them have “multiple truth values” or are “undetermined.”
There are 5 about McCain. 2 of them are untrue. 1 is “undetermined.”
Here’s a question. Where is all this misinformation about Obama coming from? There are six times the amount of entries about Obama than there are about McCain. 60% of the Obama entries are untrue (according to Snopes).
