Fact Checker sites are just another layer of disinformation that try give the perception of legitimacy.
So what about when they corroborate popular conservative talking points, are they adding a layer of disinformation there?
Obama lying about the specifics of Obamacare.
PolitiFact has named "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it," the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice...

I'm not pretending Snopes or Politifact are beacons of truth, they obviously lean liberal, but if that's your qualification for immediate dismissal, that's ignorance. Let's not act like the YouTube personalities you post are any better.
