PolitiFact Rates Undisputed True Statement as Only “Mostly True”

Published

on

“Fact-checking” website PolitiFact (read: DNC Propaganda) sunk to a new level of blatant idiocy on Monday, rating an undisputed true statement as “mostly true” because it was made by a Republican.

“Politifact is such a joke,” said Josh Perry on Twitter. “Republican states something a democrat’s campaign even acknowledges is entirely true, and the best it can get is a ‘mostly true.'”

Perry was referring to a “fact-check” article called “Did Claire McCaskill vote for 100% of Obama’s judicial nominees?”

The piece centered around a statement made by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, who will likely win the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate and take on Incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in November.

The rating, “mostly true,” is clearly evident at the top of the page. But reading the article further reveals a nugget of information showing that PolitiFact is nothing more than a biased tool used to bash and sow doubt against Republicans.

“When we contacted McCaskill’s campaign, they did not dispute that she voted for all of Obama’s nominees,” the article reads.

Later, the article acknowledges that “the substance of Hawley’s assertion is accurate.”

So if the substance of the assertion is accurate, and the information is not disputed by Hawley’s opponent, how did PolitiFact come up with a “mostly true” instead of a “true” fact-check?

Easy answer. PolitiFact is not at all interested in the truth. It is a cog in the machine of the Democrat Media Complex that continues to chug along, hoping to swallow up Republicans in its path.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
