I do not RELY on fact checkers and check my own facts but often like to see what OTHER fact checkers say without submitting to their judgment calls as being absolute or infallible. This is one site that I find a good one more than SNOPES or any other single site. Like me, they also look at what others like Politifact, Fact Check.org, Snopes have to say and then fact check those facts as well as their own sources.
I recently expressed my opinion to the owner who sent me back a very professional and intelligent response to my comment about his judgment on some sites I disagreed with him over.
IF you use fact checkers I HIGHLY recommend you use this one BUT ALWAYS use their fact checking to extend and validate your own independent review. YMMV
“RECIPE FOR SOCIETAL FAILURE: Let governments, institutions, and special-interest lobbies make the definitions of racism, antisemitism, misogyny, X-phobia… as broad as possible and then prosecute everyone for expressed-opinion and inferred-belief violations and sentence them to economic and social exclusion in as many areas of activity as possible.
SOLUTION: Actual freedom of expression with strong protections against the punishing governments, institutions, and special-interest lobbies.
Racism of personal opinion is not a crime. Inferred individual character inadequacies must not be punished by governments and their enabled institutions and corporations.
Instead, concentrate on the physical racism-etc of action of governments and their enabled institutions and corporations, such as war, genocide, economic apartheid, class-based persecution… Work for more actual democracy, not more societal exclusion and apartheids.
The whole “criticism of Israel is antisemitism” circus is a textbook example of how a powerful, stratified, funded, organized special-interest lobby (Israel lobby, promoting Israel as the main Middle East foreign-policy enforcer of the USA-allied system) generates propriety crimes to be used against political organizers (BDS) and opinion leaders.
