For years “fact-checking” outlets like PolitiFact, Snopes, and the Washington Post have leaned to the left when it comes to ruling on how “accurate” a statement is. PolitiFact has checked Donald Trump almost SIX times as often as they scrutinize Joe Biden.
Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, has uttered many falsehoods in press briefings on everything from the inflation rate to the border crisis but still has not been fact-checked at all by Factcheck.org, the Associated Press, Reuters, Washington Post, or CNN.
No wonder a study by Pew Research uncovered that seven in 10 self-identified Republicans say fact-checkers tilt to one side, with nearly half of independents agreeing. And we know what side these fact-checking referees are on.
