They have no agenda, cite reliable sources, logically and clearly explain their conclusion, and they correct the rare mistake when it is pointed out.
If snopes is not a reliable source, then reliable sources pretty much do not exist and all thats left to us is to babble our opinions without needing to back anything up.
Well, I am not saying they are edited by almighty God. I forget the issue, but there was one they were never able to debunk or verify with inclusive evidence. Yet it was still relied on here. I wouldn't say they had no agenda on that one...even if their agenda is to claim they are the best source for debunking so they just took something on they couldn't debunk effectively. Then again, they may have been provided data from a source that had an agenda.
The issue may pop into my head eventually. I just can't recall it off-hand.
“The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature.” ~ James Madison, Father of the Constitution
“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
