So I have this co-worker who has now forwarded me several emails trying to 'debunk' or promote certain facts. She is the one who sent me a link to an article about Dr. Vinay Goyal and his supposed presentation on prevention of the H1N1. She added her own little comment that said the guy was for real because she googled him. When I googled him, all I could get was a reference from one website. I have since found out this doctor has denied writing this article.
Now she's sent an email suggesting that snopes is part of some grand liberal agenda and that the couple who run it are in the tank for Obama. I did my own research and can find nothing to support this. I did find a link to an article on factcheck and they basically debunk this email she sent me. But it made me wonder, has anyone else gotten this email about snopes vs. a site called truthorfiction? Have any of you used both sites, and have you found one to be more accurate or dependable than another?
In the past, when she has sent me stuff that I've found not to be true, I've typically directed her to the source that disproves it, and now I'm starting to think that by doing this, it just further fuels the fire to find some sort of fact that she can claim to be true.
