Politifact takes page from USSR: The future is known … [Darleen Click]

… it is the past that is always changing …

On December 12, the self-appointed guardians of truth and justice at PolitiFact named President Obama’s infamous promise—that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it”—its 2013 “Lie of the Year.” An understandable choice. But in its article detailing why the President’s promise was a lie, PolitiFact neglected to mention an essential detail. In 2008, at a critical point in the presidential campaign, PolitiFact rated the “keep your plan” promise as “True.” The whole episode, and PolitiFact’s misleading behavior throughout, tells us a lot about the troubled state of “fact-checking” journalism.

Like Obama’s snicker-worthy Truth Team, much of the so-called “fact checking” in LameStreamMedia is/was there to protect and promote Obama and the Democrats. If the facts aligned, good; if they didn’t, spin it or outright lie.

Just like the New York Times declaration of being the PR department for Hillary 2016.

  1. Politifact claims it’s doing a great job because the left and right are equally upset with it.

  2. If you got everything wrong, the left and right would be equally upset.

    “Hey, I stabbed the first guy in the back and bashed the second one over the head with a bat, and they’re both upset with me. I must be doing something right!”

    This is what passes for progressive logic.

  4. Steven, and I’m saying this as someone who would laugh like hell if you got hit by a bus, but, sometimes, when you think you have something pithy to share with us, you don’t.

  5. StevenBThievin claims he’s doing a great job because he’s allowed to keep demonstrating how empty and brainless the proglodytes are.
