As 2019 draws to a close, it’s time to look back at the highlights of a year fraught with lies and disinformation, and Snopes’ efforts -- with the help of our vigilant readers -- to counter those lies with facts.

From our deep dives into the workings of deceptive, social media networks to fact-filled explainers of important news events to the daily fact checks that are our stock-in-trade, here you’ll find examples of the best work of our small but mighty newsroom staff.

You’ll also find a review of where we’ve been and where we’re headed as a company, including the details of our exciting new membership campaign, which we hope will put us on a solid financial footing for the foreseeable future and allow us to grow to meet fresh challenges.

Every time you visit Snopes, or share a fact check, or contribute, you help spread knowledge and dispel ignorance. With your continued support, we’ll keep it going in 2020 and beyond.
