Vice President Mike Pence drew a "Mostly False" recently from PolitiFact for telling a Philadelphia gathering of police officers that "Joe Biden said that well-armed police, in his words, ‘become the enemy’ and he said that he would ‘absolutely cut funding for law enforcement.’" He quoted Biden accurately, but PolitiFact ruled "Mostly False."

PolitiFact Nervously Adds 'Context' to Biden's 'Racial Jungle' Bungle

July 10th, 2020 2:24 PM

PolitiFact chose to spotlight a "Viral Image" on Facebook, and that image carried a Biden quote that wasn't quite right about how we didn't want his children to grow up in a "racial jungle." But it certainly captured Biden's sentiment. It might suggest that PolitiFact is trying to shame pro-Trump people from sharing Biden's old record too energetically.

How biased are the liberal "fact checkers" at PolitiFact?

PolitiFact Tags Black Conservative as 'Mostly False,' But He's Not

June 7th, 2020 7:43 AM

PolitiFact keeps doing “fact checks” against conservatives that acknowledge that they’re using facts, but they’re still False because – well, they don’t like the way those facts are assembled. These factual facts aren’t making the right point. They’re “too narrow.”

Why Must 'Fact Checkers' Make Rulings on Guesses and Projections?

May 6th, 2020 2:49 PM
One of the most maddening traits of the liberal-media “fact checking” sites is when they’re not checking facts. They’re trying to support Democratic projections about the future. PolitiFact did this for Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers. They gave him a “Mostly True” for bragging his “Safer at Home” lockdown “prevented the death of at least 300…

HALF TRUE? Obama Says Biden Has 'Most Progressive Platform' in History

April 22nd, 2020 6:07 PM
PolitiFact rarely checks the facts of Barack Obama. But when he endorsed Joe Biden for president, they found something he said "Half True." Obama said Biden "already has what is the most progressive platform of any major party nominee in history." This is an accepted political fact. Liberal newspapers and websites have repeatedly agreed that the Democrats are now to the…

PolitiFact released another tendentious defense of a controversial Democrat, in this case Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whose coronavirus crackdown is lighting up the conservative blogosphere.

Conservative news sources are calling out fact-checkers for ignoring inconvenient truths.

Column: The Cleanup Crew for Biden's Flu Flubs

March 20th, 2020 6:40 AM
Every once in a while, the liberal journalists at PolitiFact grant President Trump a rare rating of “Mostly True.”  Most recently, they revisited a "Pants on Fire" rating they gave Vice President Joe Biden in 2009 for answering a swine flu question from NBC's Matt Lauer that "when one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft." Here's…

'Fact Checkers' Freak Out at Trump (Not Biden) for 'Deceptive' Editing

March 11th, 2020 1:26 PM
The independence of the “independent fact checkers” is looking very questionable again, leaping into the fray to protest that a tweet featuring a brief video clip of Joe Biden is somehow “Mostly False” (as PolitiFact ruled). Earth to PolitiFact: the network "news" people omit the full context of quotes on a regular basis, but they aren't tagged as "…

Sarah Silverman: You Must Read New York Times, PolitiFact, and Snopes

February 11th, 2020 10:06 PM
On Monday, Sarah D. at Twitchy pointed out that Bernie Sanders-endorsing activist/comedian Sarah Silverman tweeted over the weekend that people should be reading newspapers. “Not websites. Not cable news. NOT a twitter feed or FB feed (I understand this irony).” She insisted “We must all be detectives to find the truth. Politifact and [S]nopes are helpful.” When the…
