TruthOrFiction has been referenced by news media and other online websites such as the Florida Times Union which said that:
TruthorFiction.com was founded in 1999 by the late Rich Buhler... who researched and wrote about urban legends for more than 30 years, according to various media reports. Its staff researches the rumors; original sources are usually listed or linked, so it is a good site to corroborate facts.
Unlike other similar websites, TruthOrFiction.com does not primarily provide fact-checking about current events. Rather, it often addresses wild and amazing claims, pictures, or stories that resurface cyclically. Some stories resurface every year, or every election year, while some suddenly re-appear after years of dormancy.
