The Media

Another Infuriating Politifact Blunder

Politifact reported that the Obama administration was "screening unborn babies as part of its security process" and reported that it was "mostly false." Mostly??

    PolitiFact is a waste of bandwidth.

    A “Mostly False” is as good as a “Somewhat True” to people who are functionally insane, and that’s before grading on the famous Liberal Media bias curve.

    “Mostly False”= Not enough reasonable doubt to the swing-voting layman, whose in-boxes these dumbass emails end up in, and just enough “truth” to make it into a multi-million dollar attack ad. It’s not huge, but it’s just enough to be a sinister eyebrow in the character composite sketch.

    Who watches the watchers and who fact checks the fact checkers?
