PolitiFact's bias, by the numbers
Conservative Fact Check ^ | 11/23/2012 | Chuck Rogers

I've always known that PolitiFact and its ilk are biased against conservative viewpoints -- in fact, that's why I started CFC. I had some downtime over this long weekend, so I tabulated their "pants on fire" rulings, and the result surprised even me. A chart is in the linked article, and here:

The sheer number alone may not tell the whole story. I can hear the libs saying: Of course there are more Conservatives labeled as liars, because they lie more... duh"

It would be interesting to see a list of lies made from Dems that were ignored, or lies by Dems that were given very low 'Pinochio's' vs. 'lies' by Republicans rated much higher.

Politifact lies by omission, much like the MSM.

I think CFC is a great idea. You probably have to dig deeper than just raw numbers like this to make your point, however.
