Interesting story from a blogger that outlines the famous website PolitiFact as a Left Wing cherry-picking and politically motivated site that takes the "easy street" approach when ever possible.

It's "owned" by the Tampa Bay Times, a well known Left biased outfit.

There's some examples given about the "Trump-Russian" collusion joke.

PolitiFact is the lie of the year

Since winning the Pulitzer in 2008, PolitiFact of the Tampa Bay Times has become a partisan joke that lives in a world where Republicans always lie even when they tell the truth, and Democrats always tell the truth even when they lie.

Usually, PolitiFact is able to cherry pick enough facts to rationalize its decisions. But in selecting its lie of the year for 2017, the web site was unable to do much more than say well, everyone we like says it is a lie.

PolitiFact began its Lie of the Year by boldly stating: "A mountain of evidence points to a single fact: Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election of 2016."

I think it is all going to plan for the op. Maybe the people who fall for his bs are the jokes.

Everyone should look closely at the stories Politifact has at the moment.

If the OP os trying to discredit them, there must be something juicy in there somewhere.

They gotta stick together on this right-wing site where left-wing posts miraculously see 60+ stars and flags.

They did meddle though with your help op. How many fake stories did you push during the election? Many from sources that should have been laughed at.
People will not admit it though no one likes admitting they were fools.

Eh, the author wrote for the Charleston Daily Mail for 40 years. I mean, clearly he has his bias, but so does Politifact.

The same people that are giving the Xuen crap are just mad that their threads don't get the same attention, I love it when people show me their jealous side, it makes things easier.

I some of you would take more time to research then simply 'bash' the OP that does not fit your views you could learn something.

Politifact..Snopes..all of them Controlled by left-wing think tanks and benefactors. Follow the money. See who started and supported it. Politifact won the Pulitzer in 09 for it's unbiased and fact checking in the 08 election. Um, yeah, there was NO fact checking or non-biased views. It was simply a campaign of if you do not want to be Racist vote Obama.

When one of their largest donors also donates to the Clinton Foundation...you see no conflict of interest? Of course, none of you see it in the Mueller investigation so I am wasting my breath.

"evidence points "


This is why I hate everything you post on this site. The operative term in the story is "evidence points". The question is not whether PolitiFact has a left-wing political bias. The real question is the are the "evidence points" they bring up factual or false. If they are factual, then it doesn't matter what political bias PolitiFact may have. Or are you suggesting "evidence points" that make the Republicans look bad are to be suppressed or ignored?

Do you agree or are you still mad at me for thinking everything you post here is pure BS?
