Lesson Resources – Snopes Before You Send

Just two resources for this video — snopes.com and factcheck.org. We can’t recommend them highly enough! Established in 1995, Snopes is run by Barbara and David Mikkelson, two folklorists and web developers who keep the site focused not only on Internet hoaxes, forwards, and rumors, but also urban legends. Factcheck.org is run by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and focuses its attentions on statements made by political players in journalism, ads, and press releases.
