“You can always take an existing article and rewrite it just enough to avoid copyright infringement."  That is a quote at the top of the linked article.  Is it attributed to Snopes co-founder, David Mikkelson?

I don't know, probably not, but the 'good' part is that he has been caught plagiarizing plenty of articles posted on Snopes.  Hmm.  So a fact checking web site, that has partnered with Facistbook, etc., publishes a lot of articles that the co-founder of said web site falsely claims as his own.  Yup.  After all, Snopes is the equivelent of the 'Ministry of Truth', right?  You know, from George Orwell's 1984.
