Hmmm?

From the Washington Post so grain of salt and all.

“The challenge that the media faces is you don’t want to give a platform to somebody who is known to lie a lot, but at the same time, this is still the president of the United States, who has a lot of power and continues to use that power,” Ananny said in an interview with The Post. “The challenge the press has is to call the president out for what I expect will be the lies he will tell, because he tells them all the time, and to call them out in real time.”

My question to you ATS is

Has anyone said they want to fact check Schumer and Pelosi rebuttal?

That's like Larry Flynt accusing someone of being a pervert.

Or speak them.

To the OP, since they can't edit, cherry pick and take out of context a live speech, they best they have is to try to spin it in realtime.

Because, you know, people are just too stupid to understand plain english so we will all need a leftist interpretation.

Good thing there is a Presidential Alert, so when SHTF the MSM won't be able to do anything to hide the truth and/or distort it in all possible ways.

That is pretty funny coming from the MSM, especially left leaning MSM. If they are "fact checking" 45, who the hell is fact checking them? Deceit & Manipulation...that is all American news has become!!!

Like they did with Justice Kavanaugh, the critics and News Networks will label President Trump guilty, and unable to be proved innocent.

In all seriousness....

I am more concerned with the need for the media to fact check themselves than I am concerned over them fact checking the president (or any politician).

It's a sad fact that politicians will spin situations to their favor. They will omit facts, they will cherry pick and they will out right lie if it suits them... but all individual politicians have a finite life span. They will be gone eventually one way or another.

News media and their bad, sloppy and underhanded practices will endure far far longer than any individual politician and so my concern rests with them far more than any individual politician.

When the lieing Trump leaves office in the next 2 to 6 years the lieing media will still be a big problem.

Add the fact that we must realy on the media to help us keep lieing politicans in check their transgressions are even more worrisome than the transgressions of an individual politician.

"Physician, heal thyself" ... than worry about Trump.

This, quite frankly. It's a sad reality that things have become so transparent.

I'm so tired of this commentary. There are no facts. Nothing needs to be checked.

In reality, everyone should be fact checking. No one should blindly be believing every word from Trump's mouth or every word the MSM publishes.

But no one lies at Trumpian levels. He's averaging 15 a day.

Maybe some toddlers. Maybe.

But few grown ups.

Of course, Trump is a toddler. Waddling around on his stumpy legs, waving his stumpy fingers all around.

I actually think there should be live fact checking

Something like a red, ticker-tape banner
scrolling underneath, usually seen during major alerts
"Gun shots heard in ..."

But then, who would the fact checker be !?
what would the spirit of the fact checking be in?
wouldn't it be best to have a fact checking panel to keep us all happy ?

3 from one side, 3 from the other ?

I dunno ...
Any reputable volonteers on ATS wanna take it up ?

If that sort of initiative could happen
maybe, tomorrow morning,
we'd all wake up
agreeing on something...
