That's not the first time a story like that has been put forth. Also, no major news networks are carrying it. So fake news on FB is the most likely case.

Thoughts on this? Besides for obviously this being wrong. These protests arent peaceful when they are having this kind of impact.
definitely sounds like a real thing that actually happened

Re: Trump's America

45 minutes to drive to another city because the protest was that large and they were blocking like 25 different possible entry points to the hospital?

We are living in scary times where the only non partisan fact checker that both sides agree on is snopes.

I am not sure what to do once Snopes is either corrupted or considered unreliable by one side.

The truth is so distorted today.

I have seen people dismiss Snopes as a "liberal" organization and an appeal to do your own research. Mostly from the conspiracy fringe but it is out there.

Re: Trump's America

Why would I feel stupid? Saw it on facebook and posted it. The premise of it can still very well happen. You think these protesters are going to just move out of the way? Doubtful

I dont live on the internet like you guys do, I tend to actually do my job and not live on 2p2 24/7

Re: Trump's America

They are protesting against racism. They are angry that a white nationalist is going to be a senior adviser to the president. How is that not congruent with letting ambulances through?

Are you angry that a white nationalist is going to be a senor adviser?

maybe, maybe not. But what the protesters do is only limited by the imagination of what someone posts on Facebook without real life collaboration right?

It's not like it's impossible that the protesters would do so, but who knows without any actual evidence?

The evil things that those protesters might do is limited only by your imagination or rather the imagination of the person writing for the fake news sites on your facebook time line.

LOL. Don't get uppity with us for posting fake news. Just check your news and feed better like we all need to do with Facebook.

A student wrote "Farewell to you my ole' friend from tech theater.” The note went on to say, “Thank you for all you and your family did to try and make Coppell a better community. Y’all were such a blessing when it came to building our new arena and turf room. We are very sad our school will not stay very clean anymore but if we need you, we will stay in touch. You will be gratefully missed.” The back of the note said “Make America great again!!! Adios!” and “Donald will miss you too.”

If you posted fake news, be a man and owe up to it. You got misled. Its ok, it happens. Everybody on both sides gets misled sometimes. I would think you would be interested in not being misled again, no?

I can recall various times where Snopes is dismissed as fake. They point to one story where snopes had made a mistake (which they later admitted and corrected) as proof that site is frequently lying. I don't recall the exact details though and too lazy to google it at the moment.
