I heard on here, when I asked what was better for autobiographies, traditional or self-publishing, that tradtional was better, Is that true?

That depends on whether you actually intend to sell them to people or not.

Traditional would have had an editor and fact checkers, and the publisher would not put out a book that was poorly written
Self published works generally lack all three of those things.

It seems to be as that is what you said.

Traditional will probably give you better marketing and exposure, unless you excel at this kind of thing yourself, but unless you're famous, whether you're an actor, politician, activist etc. or have had some kind of unique experience and lived to tell it, then your chances of being accepted by a traditional publishing company is more or less nil, in which case self-publishing is better and you might as well jump straight to that instead of querying agents and publishing houses.
