On this episode, the guys wonder when the fact checkers will dig into Rashida Tlaib’s comments about Palestinians and the Holocaust, ask why Snopes is fact-checking conservative satire sites, and ponder who is checking the facts about pregnancy at The View.

    Hax rule!

    FYI: Snopes has doubled down on “fact-checking” conservative satirical sites.

    Just today, they attacked a parody news site named the Farmington Tribune for a story in which the Governor of New Mexico has declared Ramadan a state holiday, so that Muslims don’t burn down the cathedral, because the state has no money for repairs.

    According to Snopes, it was insufficiently clear that this was a parody! They interviewed a professor and everything.

    Also, the Babylon Bee has responded to the Snopes fact check against it with another story that boasts Snopes has rated it the most trustworthy news source on the net.

    Incidentally, Snopes seems to have seriously deteriorated in just the last couple of years.

    Has this podcast disappeared? I just discovered it so I hope it is still a going concern…

    I love this podcast and the last 2 episodes in particular have been excellent.

    Especially Aaron Harrison.
