A “fact checking” website historically known for carrying water for liberals made sure its users knew that a meme of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was, indeed, not real.
According to Snopes, it is untrue that “Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly guessed ‘free’ in response to questions during an appearance on the game show ‘The Price is Right,'” given that she never made an appearance on the show. The photo, Snopes said, was first made by for an article by satire website The Babylon Bee.
Fortunately, Snopes swooped in to save the day, advising America that satire is not, in fact, real.
It turns out, the leftist media’s darling fact checkers have a bit of an obsession with AOC. The Media Research Center delved into Snopes’ fact-checking involving AOC, and it turns out the site has already defended her five times in April alone.
“Snopes.com claims to be a fact-checking website, but its recent rash of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defense items suggests it’s a liberal clickbait site,” MRC said. “There are five items just in the first 15 days of April. None of them evaluate if AOC mangled facts. They’re all on defense.”
Over the weekend, Snopes published a story claiming that Fox News was “obsessed” with the freshman congresswoman.
“Study: Fox News Is Obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” the headline read.
The Media Research Center suggested that perhaps they should look in the mirror.
“It’s quite funny, after all this, that on April 14 in a news section, Snopes posted an AP story headlined ‘Study: Fox News Is Obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” MRC said. “As if liberal outlets are not!”
There is an entire chapter in my upcoming book, Enemies: The Press vs. The American People, dedicated to fact-checking Snopes’ leftist agenda.

More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
