PolitiFact Won’t Confirm That It’s an Unbiased News Source

We asked, they wouldn’t answer.

A popular “fact-checking” website (read: Republican smear factory) refused to confirm for Big League Politics that it is indeed unbiased.

In an email conversation with PolitiFact regarding an obviously slanted hit-piece on GOP candidate for U.S. Senate from Virginia Corey Stewart, editor Angie Holan refused to answer when asked if she would go on record saying that PolitiFact is unbiased.

“[I]n this case, our report speaks for itself,” Holan said. “I don’t have anything to add that wasn’t published the piece. Thanks for reaching out.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on PolitiFact’s leftist bias, and will continue to do so. In the last two weeks alone, the “fact-checkers” rated a claim made by a Republican candidate as only “Mostly True” when the Democrat candidate acknowledged that the claim was true, rated an undisputed claim as “False” simply to make a Republican candidate look bad, and acknowledged the truth in a Republican’s candidate’s while still rating it “Mostly False.”

It is unacceptable to allow the morally bankrupt establishment to be the arbiters of what is true on the internet. It is time to start fact checking the “fact-checkers.”

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
