Kessler the Opinion Checker Throws Pinocchios at Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson
The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler runs their shop called “The Fact Checker.” But often, they’re just expressing hostilities – and tossing Pinocchios – at Republican opinions.

Kessler Admittedly Uses Faulty Data to Dismiss Good Guys With Guns

WashPost 'Fact Checker': Abrams Offers 'Rhetorical Twist' on Denialism
In Sunday’s paper Washington Post “Fact Checker” sought to downplay the “election denialism” of Stacey Abrams.

NewsBusters Podcast: 'Fact Checkers' or DNC 'Flying Monkeys'?
Stephen Kruiser of PJ Media said it was "beyond ludicrous" for liberal media outlets to have "fact checkers" when they sound like "flying monkeys" for the Democrats (like The Wizard of Oz.)

Then Brian Stelter's…
