Snopes Caught Playing Defense For Democrats Who Sat During Navy SEAL Tribute

Daily Caller

"Mythbusting website Snopes got caught pushing a misleading fact-check that offered cover for Democratic Reps. Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who remained seated during the second standing ovation for Carryn Owens, the widow of deceased Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.

"First, the facts.

"Carryn Owens received two standing ovations during President Trump’s address to Congress Tuesday night. It was during the second, longer ovation (which lasted for a full two minutes) that Ellison and Wasserman Schultz remained seated." . . .
. . .
"Snopes, which is staffed with a solid lineup of leftists, used the fact that Ellison and Wasserman Schultz stood and clapped during the first standing ovation as reason to declare it “false” that they remained seated during the second standing ovation, which they clearly did. (As John Sexton at HotAir points out, Snopes significantly revised their “fact-check” without any sort of editor’s note, contrary to journalistic standards.)"
