Default Is Snopes.com, the original Internet fact-checker, going out of business?

In a note posted on the site on Monday, Snopes — which has debunked stories about everything from Bigfoot to Miranda Cosgrove to President Trump — said it was “in danger of closing its doors” as a result of a legal dispute with an “outside vendor.” Snopes is asking its readers for contributions as the dispute drags on.

I'll use your thread rather than start my own but there's a nice Guardian article here too:

Don't let the sun go down on Snopes it's more important than ever

Even so, Snopes has to survive. It has become one of those foundational aspects of the web, like Wikipedia or Google Maps, which its impossible to imagine gone. Could we survive without it? Partially True.
