Comment: You call the Reagan diaries rumor 'false.' As I read further, I
am confused. Are you saying that it isn't FALSE because someone said that
Reagan never said that etc etc .. or that Reagan doesn't write that in his
book.

Who is not telling the truth ? Reagan, Kinsley or both ??

Isn't it possible that Kinsley is NOT telling the truth ?

Negative construction overload! Just trying to read the above nearly makes my brain explode.

Or is that "not unreading what is not unsaid in the previously unmentioned passage that is not below is causing my head to be not well"

Comment: Someone just emailed me material quoted from your web site and
seemed to portray it as truth. So I went to your web site for the first
time and found that you had indeed published this material about Barak
Obama BUT had also published an expose of how all of the so called factual
material was false.

Your web site may perform a needed service but it can be used by some to
spread malicious rumors. There must be some way of labeling the
falsehoods as false on your site. Most people will not research material
quoted as "truth".

If you repeat the same lie often enough, people will believe it.

Ya, Snopes, other than the coloured traffic lights, the status line in each article and the discussion of the topic at hand, how am I supposed to know what's true and what's false?

Come on, Big Guy, give us a break. If you really wanted us to know what's true and what's false, then the words "true" or "false" should appear in bright pink flashing letters (preferably 48 point font) against a mustard yellow background whilst the Morriston Orpheus Choir sings "it's true" or "it's false" in close four-part harmony to the tune of the "Anvil Chorus." Meanwhile, dancing neon green lemurs would cavort about the screen holding "true" or "false" signs as appropriate.

Or you could simply expect that people would actually read the article.

Nah, that would never work

Ta ra 'wan,

Comment: I wanted to comment on those poor skeletal models.
Are they for real? If so where can I write to ask who is making them do
this to there bodies just so they can keep their job. Evidently somebody
is behind all this and those poor, poor, women are going to die!!!
Somebody needs to speak up for them! Why would a photographer even take a
picture of that? If this some joke , it is a cruel one. Oh my, they need
to be in a hospital recovering for at least a month with lots of food, and
large vitamin drinks. This is disgusting and (I wish I could find the one
who said lose more weight or you are out of a job!!!)They sign these girls
to some tight contract, and then the girls feel an obligation to stay no
matter what.Who ever they are, they sure better be happy none of those
girls are my daughters.
It makes me so upset to see this. I have four daughters and they all chose
an occupation that is in the medical field.
I thank God for this. These poor women look as bad as the starving people
of the third world countries. I would not buy anything they modeled, I
would not look at them on a run way, nor would I have any respect for the
designer of what they had to wear. I would make sure they did not get
anything sold. I hope in some small way I have helped these women.Thank
you for your time.

Comment: I am not satisfied with your answer on the statement that Obama
used the Koran to swear in as a US Senator. Are you prepared to state
your reputation on the fact that he did NOT swear in on the Koran and DID
swear in with the oath of office as a US Senator on the Bible?

This is an important point for me considering he says he is Christian. I
have to have a definitive answer on this...no hedging...no run around.

D'oh!

Comment: Regarding the phishing on ebay that states your account in
suspended until you verify your information, you state that it is False.
However, within the last year I have been sent that email. I forward them
directly to ebay for them to check out. I also went to ebay directly (not
thru the link) and my account had not been suspended, as it said in the
email.

Comment: Windfall profits/Nancy Pelosi is marked as "false", and I don't
understand why. The quotes are accurate. You reference articles from two
years ago - one article prior to her position as Speaker, and article
after her position as Speaker. So what is so false about this? I have
scoured your report, scoured the articles and cannot find a falsehood.
Please explain WHY you've rated this false.
