Snopes Fact Checks an AOC Meme, Obsession with Helping Congresswoman Revealed

Snopes has done quite a bit of fact checking in favor of AOC.

Published

A “fact checking” website historically known for carrying water for liberals made sure its users knew that a meme of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was, indeed, not real.

According to Snopes, it is untrue that “Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly guessed ‘free’ in response to questions during an appearance on the game show ‘The Price is Right,'” given that she never made an appearance on the show. The photo, Snopes said, was first made by for an article by satire website The Babylon Bee. 

Fortunately, Snopes swooped in to save the day, advising America that satire is not, in fact, real.

It turns out, the leftist media’s darling fact checkers have a bit of an obsession with AOC. The Media Research Center delved into Snopes’ fact-checking involving AOC, and it turns out the site has already defended her five times in April alone.

“Snopes.com claims to be a fact-checking website, but its recent rash of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defense items suggests it’s a liberal clickbait site,” MRC said. “There are five items just in the first 15 days of April. None of them evaluate if AOC mangled facts. They’re all on defense.”

Over the weekend, Snopes published a story claiming that Fox News was “obsessed” with the freshman congresswoman.

“Study: Fox News Is Obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” the headline read.

The Media Research Center suggested that perhaps they should look in the mirror.

“It’s quite funny, after all this, that on April 14 in a news section, Snopes posted an AP story headlined ‘Study: Fox News Is Obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” MRC said. “As if liberal outlets are not!”

There is an entire chapter in my upcoming bookEnemies: The Press vs. The American People, dedicated to fact-checking Snopes’ leftist agenda.

Jennifer Rubin Calls for Biden to Accuse Trump of Willingness to Kill People

A new low.

Published

on

Washington Post neoconservative pundit Jennifer Rubin called for Joe Biden to descend to a new political low in a Thursday tweet, stating that the presumptive Democratic nominee needed to accuse Donald Trump of “willingness to kill people.

Rubin has become increasingly unhinged in recent months, and now appears prepared to utilize the vicious vitriol she previously reserved for Bernie Sanders and his supporters on Donald Trump and his voters.

It goes without saying that Rubin’s call for Biden to attack Trump in such a sensational matter doesn’t even make sense. She’s framing Trump’s supposed willingness to kill people around the response to the coronavirus, but deaths from a naturally occurring virus are not the same thing as a president consciously choosing to kill people, let alone his own citizens.

Rubin has claimed that less Democrats will die of the Chinese coronavirus in the coming weeks and months because they’re supposedly less liable to conservative “misinformation” and will follow the experts. She seems to have missed that the coronavirus epidemic is most severe in reliably liberal and Democratic states such as New York, which has incurred the greatest individual share of American coronavirus casualties by far.

Joe Biden, to the extent that he has any power over his own campaign message and rhetoric, probably isn’t going to follow Rubin’s hysterical advice. Biden has avoided overtly political attacks against Trump involving the coronavirus, realizing that most Americans aren’t looking for everyday partisan politics in the midst of the historically unprecedented pandemic.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has admitted that President Trump has delivered in a meaningful fashion for his state, in any case. Perhaps Rubin should consider that Democratic governors are touting their fruitful cooperation with Trump before ascribing murderous intent to the President.
