Do you have a site you like better for fact checking?

The site is the round object on top of my neck and a dose of uncommon sense. "I read it on the internet..." Now apply that uncommon sense.

So do you have a better way of finding information to make an informed decision? Snopes at least provided sources on their articles and actively encourages users to verify everything independently. No single source should ever be your only record of truth, but I’ve found them to be a good starting point.

Merely saying take everything with a grain of salt. I recall reading a foreign news story that once cited to "The Onion."

Todays top story
"Crypto Confidence Soars After CEO Defrauds Customers Just Like Real Bank." Just for a minute...

What does that have to do with Snopes? Isn't this exactly in line with their recommendation that readers independently verify?

Logic and common sense are completely useless without facts--empirical evidence. First you need to know what is true and what is not true. Then you apply common sense to the solutions. Checking the validity of your facts is important. Going by your gut will lead to error due to confirmation bias.
