March 23rd, 2021 5:00 PM

Hide Your Memes! Facebook Fact Checker Attacks ‘Family Circus’ Meme

March 5th, 2021 4:57 PM

Apparently, a Facebook fact-checker’s idea of a perfect start to the weekend included censoring memes on the platform. PolitiFact provided a fact-check of a meme that poked fun at the idea of young children being able to “take hormones” and “change [their] sex.”

Column: Susan Rice and the Fact-Checker Farce

January 27th, 2021 6:00 AM

Seeing Susan Rice at the White House podium in 2021, a friend of mine suggested Rice has never been “fact-checked.” Well, that can’t be, I thought. Then I went to the PolitiFact website, which strangely had a Susan Rice page....but not a single “fact check” of Rice, even though PolitiFact was founded in 2007 and Rice worked for Obama from 2009 to 2017.

January 5th, 2021 11:19 AM

Once again, one of Facebook’s fact-checkers has failed to acknowledge the facts — this time surrounding the origins of COVID-19. Now, even a leftist source has begun to concede that COVID-19 may have originated in a lab in Wuhan, China.

November 30th, 2020 5:17 PM

Bryan White at the website PolitiFact Bias points out that the "fact checkers" are tilting in favor of both Democrats running for the U.S. Senate in runoffs.

PolitiFact Hassles Hice for Saying Dems Treated Trump as Illegitimate

November 28th, 2020 9:21 PM

One of the most annoying habits at PolitiFact is the tendency to treat standard political rhetoric as some kind of falsehood. Take Congressman Jody Hice (R-Georgia), who said of the Democrats, "If they truly wanted unity, they wouldn’t have spent 4 years refusing to acknowledge Trump’s 2016 victory." They called that False.
