That ANY politicians lie, be them from the right OR left isn't really "news", is it?


I'll only say this:  At least when the LEFT lies, they take pains to try not making it so OBVIOUS.   ;)

PolitiFact.com bias: Does the GOP tell nine times more lies than left? Really?

PolitiFact is not that honest fact-checker. Once widely regarded as a unique, rigorous and reasonably independent investigator of political claims, PolitiFact now declares conservatives wrong three times more often than liberals.


More pointedly, the journalism organization concludes that conservatives have flat out lied nine times more often than liberals.


If you were a fact-checker yourself, you might reasonably conclude that PolitiFact is biased — that it favors liberals over conservatives. But PolitiFact continues to assert its impartiality.


PolitiFact editor Bill Adair did not respond to interview requests. But liberals defend the organization. They gleefully point to PolitiFact’s lopsided numbers as evidence that a neutral arbiter has declared liberal politicians are more honest than their conservative counterparts.


This website is used by the fake press to declare what is true and what isn't, even though studies have shown it is full of lies. This is how bad the media has become, they can't even use honest sources anymore.

Things are never so bad they can't be made worse.
