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.
