Another far-left front posing as a non-partisan fact checker so that places like Facebook can spin the narrative.
Annenberg's FactCheck.org is another far-left front posing as a non-partisan fact checker. They take money from Facebook, then spin stories/facts left, giving Facebook cover for censoring "disinformation" aka uncomfortable truths they don't like. History shows that FactCheck.org was partisan fraud for a long time back.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Of course that doesn't mean that everything FactCheck says is wrong. It's just that if you pool a bunch of far left j-students as interns at a partisan location, and ask them to fact check things, what they choose to check (and omit), it is unlikely to be fair and balanced. Worse, echo-chambers are especially susceptible to not knowing what they don't know. And with no conservatives on staff, there's no one to sanity check your biases.

Here are a few examples of their mistakes: FactCheck • [12 items]

  • Fake Facts/Birth of Birthers - Fact checkers (CNN, Politifact, Snopes, FactCheck) answered whether Hillary originated the Birther movement, and exonerated her. It was only her top strategists plan and her campaign staffers, but not her personally -- so they pretended that Trump was lying to imply she had anything to do with creating these rumors.
  • Fake Facts/Cal outlaws Religious Freedom - You can have religious liberty, or a Democrat controlled government, but as California Assembly Bill 2943 shows, not both. It says no church or individual can practice "conversion therapy", or "pray the gay away". While I don't think those are useful, in a country with religious liberty, you don't outlaw stupid things just because you don't agree.
  • Fake Facts/Dems remain seated for Navy Seal - Many Democrats remained seated during Trump's first address to congress in 2017, in protest of his very existence. Fake Fact Checkers tried to spin it for the Democrats favor, but showing a few of them might have stood for a nanosecond, very late, but ignore that most did not.
  • FakeNews about Cagegate - This FakeNews fiasco was the fallacy that Trump's new immigration policy was breaking up families and putting kids in cages. The omitted reality was criminals (border jumpers) have always had the kids separated from the adults, as you aren't sure who are parents, and detaining both in the same place risks harm to children. The media even used faked propaganda images from Obama era to sell it.
  • Hillary Clinton/Cattlegate: Futures Trading Miracle (1978) - First time Cattle Futures trader Hillary, make a 9,987% returns with perfect trades, (done for her, by a scummy lawyer), then she never trades again. She claims she learned how on the Wall Street Journal, which doesn't talk about cattle futures. Democrats and Fake Fact Checkers claim nothing sounds fishy.
  • Hillary Clinton/Lootergate (2001) - After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $190,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had taken. The Clintons water carriers in the media fake "Fact Checked" this and tried to exonerate the Clintons by word parsing or misleading the public on what happened.
  • Hillary Clinton/Open Borders - Wikileaks leaked the text of private, paid speech to a Brazilian bank where Clinton said: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders..." 3 years later, Politifact, FactCheck and CNN were claiming that Hillary never said or meant it, despite evidence to the contrary.
  • Hillary Clinton/Travelgate (1993) - Clinton friend Harry Thompson create a new company, and when the WhiteHouse Travel office rightly rebuffed the newcomer, Hillary ignored conflict of interest laws, got involved, gave him a tits $500K no-bid contract. Oh, and used the IRS to harass their enemies/complainers/whistleblowers. The Fake Fact Checkers stayed away from this whole fiasco.
  • Hillary Clinton/Troopergate (1980-1993) - Troopergate was where Bill Clinton used Arkansas state police assigned to his security detail, to keep an eye out for Hillary or ferry women in and out of the Governors mansion for him (as well as keep track of his sexual scoring system). While Hillary was using state troopers to take her to clandestine meetings with Vince Foster at a resort (for an alleged affair).
  • Hillary Clinton/Vandals - FakeNews tries to spin $14K in vandalism (according to the GAO), done by Clinton admin on the way out, as just a couple prank. No other administration was classless enough to ever do this before or since.
  • Trump Rally Violence - There's claims that Trump advocated violence at his rally's -- but that's not the whole context. Here's the facts: Hillary and the Democrats paid violent protestors to go to Trump Rally's and beat people up. Trump responded to that with a Trumpism that he'd pay the legal fees of anyone that defended themselves and roughed them up back, on the way out.
  • You didn't build that - You didn't build that became a defining phrase of Obama admin. The left thinks without government, there would be no business. The truth is the opposite, without government we'd have commerce, but without commerce and people to tax, there is no government. Government is the parasite with delusions of grandeur.

Disproportionate weight for or against a person, place, idea or thing, usually ignoring evidence against.

Fact Checkers
There's a reason why the moderately informed don't trust the Fact Checkers: the answer is most fact checkers are as biased (or more so) than the rest of the publications they work for.

SJWs: When you are not able to refute the arguments, bully people into silence. Social Justice is injustice.
