The folks at Merriam-Webster today are too busy making the world an angrier, more divided place to be bothered with intellectual honesty.
The media can’t get enough of ‘fact checks.’ But why do they do such a horrible job with them? Here are a few particularly bad examples.
PolitiFact presents itself as a nonpartisan truth umpire, but here’s the story behind how its metrics are biased against Republicans and highly attuned to political winds.
Mitt Romney did not seem to be a particularly egregious liar, nor does Hillary Clinton seem the single most honest politician to run for president in the last 10 years. Yet PolitiFact says it’s true.
Politico appears to publish Democrat talking points as ‘facts,’ if a recent hit on Tom Price, Donald Trump’s nominee to run the Department of Health and Human Services, is any indication.
The most salient and effective tools in the pro-life arsenal are the cold, hard facts about abortion: it is a medical procedure that kills innocent human beings. That’s why the Left avoids the truth.
At offering Americans a ‘fair shake,’ neither tax-exempt organization measures up. Unfortunately, coverage of the two foundations is also often unfair.
PolitiFact claims Ted Cruz’s assertions about Hillary Clinton are ‘false.’ We give Politifact a flaming giant liar rating on the Truth-O-Meter.
With a Hillary Clinton presidency and Supreme Court on the way, we need an American population that is historically knowledgeable about the Second Amendment.
Either Donald Trump has a horrible memory or he’s a pathological liar. Either way, it’s pretty clear you can’t trust at thing he says. So what else is he lying about?
Why is the media in denial about what the Planned Parenthood videos show?
The University of Virginia just released 104 pages worth of correspondence between it and Rolling Stone. Read all the e-mails here.
A host of men possibly falsely accused of rape by Lena Dunham and Rolling Stone definitely have grounds for defamation lawsuits.
This is hilarious on multiple levels. Politifact’s PunditFact thinks it’s caught Bill Kristol in a huge, huge lie.
