PolitiFact Boasts 'Fact-Checking Festival' Starring...Brian Stelter!?
Is PolitiFact proving how objective they are by holding a “fact-checking festival” from May 10 to 13 starring CNN’s Brian Stelter? No, they’re further proving they are part of the loud warp and woof of the liberal media. They're also interviewing Dr. Anthony Fauci, Sen. Mark Warner, and Steven Hassan, who claims in all seriousness that Trump backers are a "cult."
PolitiFact POUNCED on TV Talk Fighting Back on Water Bottles at Polls
PolitiFact “pounced” on former McConnell chief of staff Josh Holmes for his defense of the new Georgia election-integrity law on Fox News Sunday.

Beware Journalists Using 'Fact Checkers' to Slam New GOP Ads on HR1
The Democrat-favoring "fact checker" websites are hard at work spinning for H.R. 1, the shameless attempt to federalize elections under the banner of "voting rights."

PolitiFact Checks Nutty Video Saying Biden's 'Not a Human Being'

'Science'? PolitiFact Denies the FACT That We're Born Boys or Girls
You can tell a "fact checker" is marching to the drumbeat of the libertine left when they labor to deny the biological fact that the overwhelming majority of humans are born as either boys or girls.

PolitiFact Boss Pushes Cuomo's Nursing Home Lies, 'Really Complicated'
On Sunday, CNN’s “Reliable Sources” proved once again to be a hotbed of misinformation as PolitiFact editor-in-chief Angie Drobnic Holan worked to prop up Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s lies about nursing home deaths.

Column: Susan Rice and the Fact-Checker Farce
Seeing Susan Rice at the White House podium in 2021, a friend of mine suggested Rice has never been “fact-checked.” Well, that can’t be, I thought. Then I went to the PolitiFact website, which strangely had a Susan Rice page....but not a single “fact check” of Rice, even though PolitiFact was founded in 2007 and Rice worked for Obama from 2009 to 2017.
Facebook Fact-Checker Won’t Acknowledge Possible Origins for COVID
Once again, one of Facebook’s fact-checkers has failed to acknowledge the facts — this time surrounding the origins of COVID-19.

PolitiFact's 'Half True': Loeffler's 'For Getting Rid of Health Care'
Bryan White at the website PolitiFact Bias points out that the "fact checkers" are tilting in favor of both Democrats running for the U.S. Senate in runoffs. We noted PolitiFact cried "PANTS ON FIRE" when Sen. David Perdue dared to call his opponent Jon Ossoff a "socialist," but somehow it's "Half True" for Democrat Raphael Warnock to suggest Sen. Kelly Loeffler is "for getting rid of…
PolitiFact Hassles Hice for Saying Dems Treated Trump as Illegitimate
One of the most annoying habits at PolitiFact is the tendency to treat standard political rhetoric as some kind of falsehood. Take Congressman Jody Hice (R-Georgia), who said of the Democrats, "If they truly wanted unity, they wouldn’t have spent 4 years refusing to acknowledge Trump’s 2016 victory." They called that False.
