ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: SNOPES CREDIBILITY

Almost Russia?

Mostly false?   Does that mean it’s almost true, that there are details that gives suspicion, therefore it’s almost true, but is “mostly false”.     A Ford is a Ford, a Chevy a Chevy but they have similarities, both have an engine, both roll on tires……but the similarities don’t almost make a Chevy a Ford.  Either something is true or it is false.    You can’t make something true by saying there are similarities but it is mostly false.   Snopes also answers with “unproven”…….Unproven means it has not been determined to be true, but it’s not proven to be false either.   Snopes often is “On the Fence” or they just don’t know.
