Who are these “Fact Checkers” that parse through data and reports and determine what is fact or fiction?
They are referred to as “independent” fact checkers but they are in an organization executing the party line on facts.
They are anything BUT independent. Fact Checking has its journalistic routes and is a spin off from the media, not some grass roots campaign that was born organically. Its to keep the media in power and in control of the flow of information.
We think that Fact Checkers were born during the Trump administration in response to his “fake news” call outs on media, but it goes further back than that. You can find various starting points but they bubble to the surface anytime a Republican President is in the White House.
Factcheck.org A Project of The Annenberg Public Policy Center is considered the Mack daddy of fact checking and one pass through it, you can tell it is slanted toward liberal Democrats. Look into its founders and you learn a great deal more.
Factcheck.org “factchecked” the Biden inauguration speech and determined it was pretty standard and nothing there for fact checkers.
From Biden’s speech he said, “We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts. If we show a little tolerance and humility.”
That could have been fact checked because this tolerance and humility has been absent by everyone on the left long before Trump was elected. Certainly they could have least found that one!
Fact Checking is a media weapon formed to protect the media and the liberal elite. Conservatism is the enemy and the pseudo-official fact checkers has it in its sights.
