Anonymous said: why don' you think snopes is credible? what s the context of the leeann j post?
in reference to this post
i don’t think snopes is credible as a primary source - i think it’s useful for establishing whether or not something is fact or fiction, but i don’t think it should be used as a “be all end all”. here’s the thing: snopes sources NOTHING. so while what they say may be true, they can’t provide any sources to back any of the “information” up.
it’s like how if i’m going to write a paper about something, i’m going to start with the wikipedia article to teach myself some base facts which i can begin to base my argument around, but i’m not going to use it as a source in my paper. i would check out other sites related to the information i find on the page (or even, look at the sources used to make the wiki page).
same thing with snopes. it’s a good “starting point” but don’t believe everything you read on the internet without backing it up first.
also the context is white people sharing scare posts on facebook without checking the validity of said posts, and other white people telling them snopes debunked it.
