This is a disgusting revelation for all who thought Snopes was in the business of validating information. I have been saying this for some time myself and this adds validity to my thoughts. It is time everyone knew this so the number of hits on Snopes will drop to zip and advertisers bring it down. I too have found that much information is correct despite Snopes claims it to be false.

Daily News (New York, NY)
11 February 2021, Daily News (New York, NY), “Ailing Rush takes day off from program” by Brian Niemietz, pg. CS16:
Conservative commentator Ken Matthews filled in for Limbaugh.
“God Bless America,” he tweeted when announcing he would be hosting. “Snopes is for Dopes.”
Snopes.com is a fact-checking site that has on multiple occasions taken issue with Limbaugh’s ruminations.
