January 28th, 2022 5:28 PM

On January 24, PolitiFact wrote a “fact check” throwing a “Mostly False” rating at Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears for an TV interview with Fox News on Martin Luther King Day claiming the school system in Loudoun County, Virginia spent $300,000 on critical race theory. When faced with the facts, PolitiFact wouldn't budget. She was still "Mostly False." No, they were. 


STUDY: PolitiFact's Much More Likely to Defend Biden Than Check Him

January 27th, 2022 10:00 AM

 PolitiFact begs for donations by proclaiming "Our only agenda is to publish the truth so you can be an informed participant in democracy." But this "independent fact-checker" routinely betrays a tilt by coming out more aggressively to “correct” attacks on Democrats.

Column: No Fact-Checking for Biden's Atlanta Smears

January 14th, 2022 6:28 AM

One of the most frustrating things about “fact checkers” is how they leap on conservative rhetoric against Democrats as “false” or “missing context,” but let Democrats say the wildest, nastiest things about conservatives, and they get a pass. For example, PolitiFact pounced on Sen. David Perdue of Georgia as a “Pants On Fire” liar for calling his opponent Jon Ossoff a “socialist.” But…

January 8th, 2022 2:29 PM

Vice President Kamala Harris began her speech marking the one-year anniversary of the January 6 riot by comparing it to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

In Sunday's Washington Post, "fact checker" Glenn Kessler took up Joe and Jill Biden's tax avoidance during the Trump years by channeling funds through an "S corporation."

Fact Butlers: Townhall Nails PolitiFact for Aping Biden Rapid Response

December 13th, 2021 7:18 AM

Over and over again, we find "independent fact checkers" come rushing to President Biden's defense when he says something that sounds wacky. Spencer Brown at Townhall complained Friday that PolitiFact closely followed Team Biden in crying "missing context" on Biden saying they would make sure Americans are "paying their fair share for gas." What does that mean?

On November 15, Rep. Cori Bush (radical D-Mo.) tweeted that “When we marched in Ferguson, white supremacists would hide behind a hill near where Michael Brown Jr. was murdered and shoot at us.” Where were the “Fact Checkers”?

WashPost 'Fact Checker' DRAGGED Into '4 Pinocchios' for Liar McAuliffe

October 28th, 2021 1:54 PM

Washington Post “Fact Checker” Glenn Kessler had to be dragged, sort of kicking and screaming, to give Terry McAuliffe “4 Pinocchios” for dramatically exaggerating COVID among children in Virginia. Kessler let McAuliffe publicists talk him out of a check three times before he felt like he was suckered.

September 25th, 2021 7:16 AM

Joe Wulfsohn at Fox News reported the "fact check" squads of the liberal media did not correct the Democrat/media claims that there were whips used by the Border Patrol against illegal Haitian immigrants at the southern borders.

Column: Twitter and the 'Fact Checkers' Line Up for Biden

September 22nd, 2021 6:00 AM

Twitter makes it easy to realize that the purpose of “fact-checkers” is most commonly rushing to defend Joe Biden from misinterpretation...and mockery. On September 20, Twitter warned “A video of President Biden discussing hurricane preparedness has been edited out of context, according to fact-checkers.”


WashPost, CNN 'Fact Checkers' RAGE at GOP for Noting WH Cut Video Feed

September 16th, 2021 6:49 AM

Sister Toldjah at RedState reported that those “independent fact checkers” at CNN and The Washington Post rushed to Biden’s defense again on Tuesday.

Neither guardian of facts noticed Biden unloaded a whopper about "my first job offer"…
