Snopes is okay when it comes to debunking urban legends.  But politics?  No way.

I’ve found they run about 50-50 on ordinary things and maybe 90-10 wrong on politics if we are looking at it from a totally unbiased perspective.  If you agree with them then they are 100 right to 0 wrong on politics.

Doesn't sound all that unbiased to me.

It’s not.  They are not even specialist, other than by their own trial and error.  They have no oversight.
