The Washington Post Fact Checker squad sent Rep. Liz Cheney a nasty valentine on February 14, throwing a Three Pinocchios flag for speculation that the Democrats want to outlaw plane travel and cars. Fact-checkers generally can't help but clumsily apply a liberal bias in deciding who gets "Pinocchios" and who is "Pants on Fire." On the same Green New Deal documents, the Post's fact police gave Cheney a ticket and gave Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a Get Out of Fact Jail Free card.
The headline in the Washington Post read this way: “Film about American Nazis aims to send message to Trump voters with local ad during Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.” Beneath the headline was a photo of a smiling Sean Hannity. The story, in part, read this way, bold print for emphasis mine:
On Thursday morning came a surprise in the Covington Kids controversy: the front page of The Washington Post carried a story headlined “Report finds ‘no evidence’ of racist talk by students.” Reporters Frances Stead Sellers and Kevin Williams calmly recounted how Covington Catholic High School students rode a bus from Kentucky to attend the March for Life and were faced with “widespread condemnation online” for allegedly saying racist things or appearing racist to Indian activist Nathan Phillips. An independent report now insists there were no racist incidents among these students.
Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler let a Democrat presidential candidate have it, the full "Four Pinocchios" rating -- for Sen. Kamala Harris claiming Trump's tax cut was actually a "middle-class tax hike." Now will she be asked about it by other reporters?
Two days after airing a Super Bowl commercial that depicts journalists as people of great importance and integrity, The Washington Post published an error-ridden fact check of President Trump’s State of the Union address. Written by Glenn Kessler, Salvador Rizzo, and Meg Kelly, it contains an array of half-truths, straw men, and outright falsehoods.
The media spent Tuesday morning rushing to Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s aid, after she was criticized from both parties for making an anti-Semitic comment on Twitter, (not her first.) Politico first ran a story praising Omar as a “superstar villain” for the right, while MSNBC took that headline and ran a segment on MSNBC Live with Craig Melvin, trying to spin the Democrat scandal as a problem for Republicans.
The Washington Post "Fact Checker" has thrown a penalty flag at freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.), but not about her scandalous chatter about Israel. It's about wages paid at McDonald's. She mangled her numbers badly -- by as much as 300 percent -- but chief "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler only rated this as "2 Pinocchios," or "half true." Half?
Silicon Valley is full of opportunities for political donations. But a Soros-funded organization wants to make sure any support goes to the correct side of the political spectrum.
The Washington Post Fact Checker page has a habit of “hiding the Pinocchios” for Democrats when liberal staffers aggressively engage them. This happened again early Monday with the much-mocked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talking points for the “Green New Deal.” Post “fact checker” Salvador Rizzo admitted the new congresswoman and her supporters misled the public, but they were “walked back,” so no Pinocchios
When The Washington Post covers religion, the articles mainly serve as reminders of the paper’s almost otherworldly ignorance of the topic, leavened by the occasional inspirational column about social justice rummage sales from the lesbian pastor of The Eternal Woke Church and Vegan Coffee Bar. The original headline was “At the National Prayer Breakfast, Trump likely to play on white evangelicals’ fears.”
Washington Post "gender and society" columnist Monica Hesse wasn't a bit shy about being a Democrat cheerleader after the president's big speech. Her column was headlined "The exquisite shade of Nancy Pelosi’s applause at the State of the Union." The Post also used the term "exquisite rudeness" in social media.
The uproar over New York State's Reproductive Health Act, which allows late-term abortions performed by “health-care practitioners” when the “patient is within 24 weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an absence of fetal viability or the abortion is necessary to protect the patient's life or health” should come as no surprise. These and similar efforts in other states are the rotten fruit of a culture that has long-abandoned the sanctity of life. Listen to the rhetoric for proof.
