Snopes

One of the downfalls of the internet is that with so much information zooming around out there it’s often difficult to sort out the reliable stuff from all the junk, rumors and hearsay. Any journalist will tell you this is no piece of cake and not something to be taken lightly, especially when your reputation is on the line. Before passing along the latest rumor from this morning’s water cooler chat you might consider cross checking it over at Snopes, a place where all the latest rumors and many of the oldest urban legends go to get verified, vetted and confirmed or debunked. It may just save you from looking silly later on, and there’s a lot of interesting things to read about here as well.
