There’s no shortage of fake-fact checks published by corporate outlets self-righteously and falsely presenting themselves as neutral arbiters of truth.
Over the past several years, dressed up in official-sounding titles, the fact-checkers have allied themselves with some of the most powerful private companies to have ever existed.
In his latest campaign trail slip-up, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed Sunday that 200 million people have died from the novel virus.
Tech outlets like Facebook rely increasingly on third-party fact-checkers to determine what content is allowed on their platforms. Here’s a look at how those fact-checkers do business.
Multiple fact-checkers botched a fact-check of online outrage over the Democratic National Convention twice omitting ‘under God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance.
The online conspiracy theory about the Parkland kids was ugly, but it wasn’t the most significant lie of the year.
So-called fact-checking outfit PolitiFact is fine with considering cost-of-living differences in California or New York, just not in Oklahoma.
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is absolutely correct about carbon dioxide, and it’s the media who don’t understand the scientific issues.
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.
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.
Newly released FBI crime data show that Donald Trump was correct when he said last June that “crime is rising.” Overall violent crime in the U.S. increased by 4 percent in 2015.
President Obama claimed that violent felons can purchase guns online without a background check. This is false in at least three major ways.
Saturday Night Live poked mild fun at President Obama. The Washington Post responded ridiculously. It ran a “fact check” of the skit.
This is hilarious on multiple levels. Politifact’s PunditFact thinks it’s caught Bill Kristol in a huge, huge lie.
Today, a government of the people begins and ends on election day. Thereafter, every special interest deal, parliamentary trick, and constitutional sophism is used to ram its policies (Obamacare) through Congress.
