Snopes - The largest internet fact checker is in troubles, asks for donations to survive


Snopes is no doubt the biggest internet fact checker and is one of the most credible website in USA. Today we found that its founder David Mikkelson wrote an open to his users requesting to donate $500K to protect the website from closing down.

Facebook has hired Snopes to help it in tackling the fake news which were being posted on its website. A team of 16 people Snopes have also helped to unearth many political news during last held elections in the USA.

David Mikkelson in the fund raise request letter wrote "Our legal team is fighting hard for us, but, having been cut off from all revenue, we are facing the prospect of having no financial means to continue operating the site and paying our staff (not to mention covering our legal fees) in the meanwhile."

We need more such sites and request Indian community to help it raise the required funds.
