Avoiding Snopes to avoid your beliefs being challenged is also confirmation bias. Although I'm pretty sure it is a peddler for the official story, and is mostly wrong, still consider what it says.

It is a peddler for the officials story, and is intentionally misleading.

Their "evidence" is questionable, at best. Why should it be considered?

Snopes is often correct, but the problem is they re-contextualize the question to a broader or narrower scope than what the original intent was, and then disprove it on that scope, while avoiding the very original intent of the allegation. So it's all factually correct, but it answers just ever so slightly the wrong question. That's my experience with it anyway
