Dear Reader,

I believe strongly in the importance of both fighting for truth and in building conversation and community online. This has been my passion and life’s work since I founded Snopes.com, the oldest and most respected fact check site online since 1994, and these goals continue to drive my work today. Whether you are a long-time reader of Snopes.com or today is your first time encountering us, I hope you take the chance to engage with us and continue the dialogue. Our readers and commentators are the heart and soul of our community, and I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to embark on the quest for truth together. Thank you!

Sincerely and respectfully yours,

David Mikkelson

Founder, Snopes.com
