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.

Mainstream Media TOTALLY IGNORES Heinous Murder of 5-Year Old White North Carolina Child, Black Man Charged
Imagine if it were reversed.
Nearly 24 hours after North Carolina’s WRAL broke the news of the heinous murder of a five-year old child, mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC are yet to cover the story.
Darius N. Sessoms, a 25-year old black man, has been accused by witnesses of callously shooting white five-year old Cannon Hinnant, who was riding his bike through Wilson, North Carolina.
Sessoms was brought into custody and charged with first degree murder on Sunday night.
ABC News, Reuters, and NBC are among the other corporate news outlets that are steadfastly ignoring the story, as of Tuesday night.
The national media is a disgrace. I cannot tell you how much contempt I have for these disgusting frauds. pic.twitter.com/Wtp44oQznt

Every one of these news outlets has extensively covered incidences of crime in which the races of the perpetrator and the victim are reversed, including the Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd cases. In both cases, similarly to the Hinnant case, the alleged prepetrators were arrested and charged in the crimes. They’re remarkably silent when it comes to a case in which the alleged perpetrator is black, even though the murder of the five year old child appears to be even more heinous and senseless than the deaths of two grown men.
Sessoms’ brother appears to be a convicted pedophile.
Reports of the killing also appear to dismiss the racial dynamics of the heinous crime, declining to share pictures of the victim and the suspect.
