Skip to comments.Is PolitiFact campaigning for Obama?
Posted on 08/19/2012 7:53:03 PM PDT by middlegeorgian
Recently, the fact-checking organizations PolitiFact.com and FactCheck.org failed to properly analyze an ad by President Obama claiming that Mitt Romney pays a lower tax rate than the average American. Just Facts President Jim Agresti and I subsequently hammered both organizations for what appears to be a severe case of intellectual dishonesty.
Unfortunately, this is an increasingly common problem at PolitiFact. Conservatives rightly point to a liberal bent at Fact Check, but the organization is pretty solid at analyzing whats going on with claims by members of both major political parties. On the other hand, with the arrival of the general election and the otherwise politically-quiet month of August, PolitiFact seems to have gone from being a respectable, if liberal-leaning, organization to a campaign slot for Obama.

IMO, nearly all these so-called “fact checking” organizations are liberal apologists.
Lipstick on a pig.
I had a Leftist wench trying to quote me Politifact.
I explained to her that Politifact leans so far Left you have to lay it on its right side to stand it up straight.
It was inevitable.
They have been working hard for the Obama agenda. Liars.
Here is just an example of their creative manipulations:
(In accusing Romney of lying about Obama cutting medicare)
“First things first: Neither Obama nor his health care law literally cut a dollar amount from the Medicare programs budget... What kind of spending reductions are we talking about? They were mainly aimed at insurance companies and hospitals, not beneficiaries. The law makes significant reductions to Medicare Advantage, a subset of Medicare plans run by private insurers.”
Ahhhh, so Obama didn’t cut medicare, he just cut Payments to the medicare supplementary plan, which most seniors use to offset their medicare costs. But that’s not REALLY cutting medicare, just... cutting payments to medicare providers!
