Elon Musk Calls Out Fake Fact Checker “Snopes” for Trying to Discredit the Daily Caller

Twitter Owner Elon Musk called out left-wing fact checker Snopes on Thursday for allegedly trying to discredit the Daily Caller, based on documents obtained by America First Legal.

America First Legal, a conservative legal group, obtained documents from a FOIA lawsuit against the State Department allegedly showing how the Global Engagement Center (GEC) coordinates with “a global cartel of ‘independent’ ‘fact-checkers’ led by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies (which operates Politifact) and members of its International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN).”

The GEC is an office within the State Department tasked with combatting disinformation, and it previously funded a British nonprofit that created a blacklist of conservative media organizations. America First Legal claims the IFCN works to “exclude other media organizations with whom they disagree” from the fact-checking process.
