I don’t know what Snopes founder David Mikkelson is thinking, either. She has been the extremely public face of Snopes in panel discussions, news articles, her Twitter account (@BrooklynMarie), and was interviewed on the PBS NewsHour this past May. I’d venture to say that no one in the fact-debunking business was as visible as her, and I know damned well how good she is at it. Why would he give up the kind of free publicity he had with her as their managing editor? It mystifies me.
