As per Folks, this article explains how media works, but biasness not fake as always. Yes, they make stories and facts to bash Republicans and make Democrats look good. Fake news doesn’t manipulate always but CHOOSES to cover vs. ignore.
The current example of this is the Washington Post to start the Presidential Fact Checker under President Trump. The “fact checked” every statement he said. It is not a bad idea until the fact check is for everyone. And that’s what the Washington Post has done.
Just 100 days into Biden’s regime, the Post has eliminated the Presidential Fact Checker.
It will no longer exist under Biden because the post has an agenda to push. The media bias is so obvious. The Washington Examiner has more details on this move: It was a good run. I guess.
The Washington Post is shuttering the presidential fact-checking database it launched under former President Donald Trump, just a mere 96 days after the inauguration of President Joe Biden.
The paper’s chief fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, announced the change late Monday evening. “We’ve been comparing Biden (67 false or misleading claims) to Trump’s first 100 days (511 claims),” he said on social media. “But past is no prologue. In the last 100 days before the 2020 election, we counted 8,859 claims made by Trump. It was a wild ride.”
Kessler then shared a link to the Washington Post’s Biden database, adding that “we do not plan to extend beyond 100 days.” “I have learned my lesson,” he said. “‘Learned my lesson’ means that who knows what the next four years will bring. We have fact-checked Biden rigorously and will continue to do so. Trump at 500 claims/100 days was manageable; 8,000+ was not.”
Kessler continues, explaining that it was a Herculean task maintaining a database of Trump’s falsehoods, misstatements, and outright lies. “[It] required about 400 additional 8-hour days over four years beyond our regular jobs for three people,” he said. “Biden is off to a relatively slow start but who knows what will happen. We will keep doing fact checks, just not a database.”
Well, shuttering the database for Biden is too early and foolish. He lied in April when he “turned around a slow-moving vaccination program” started under Trump. He pushed a misleading narrative in March when he said critics claimed his goal of 100 vaccines in 100 days was “way over the top.” Biden lied in February when he claimed there was “no real plan to vaccinate most of the country” when he took office.
He also lied in October 2020, when he said he didn’t oppose fracking. He told a Trump-style falsehood in September 2020 when he asserted that “all the people would still be alive” had the then-president acted sooner on the coronavirus pandemic. He was way off when he stated earlier that COVID-19 had killed 6,114 service members.
He lied when he said he was the first person to call for invoking the Defense Production Act to fight the pandemic. He lied when he claimed McDonald’s makes its employees sign non-compete agreements so they cannot get jobs with Burger King.
He lied when he said he has enjoyed the backing of the NAACP every time he has run for office.
He lied when he claimed the Obama administration did not “lock people up in cages.” He lied when he said, “immediately, the moment [the Iraq War] started, I came out against the war at that moment.”
These are just a few examples from the past few months, remember he is in Washington for 40 years.
Biden is an infamous bootlegger and a serial fabricator. He lied about being shot at in Iraq, to have led the charge against Slobodan Milosevic, being the first in his family to attend university.
He lied when he bragged he predicted the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the “marched in the civil rights movement”, and his wife and child were killed by a drunk driver. Moreover, he fabricated a story to get arrested for demanding a meeting with Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
As per News World Today, “And then, there’s my personal favorite: In the 1980s, when Biden first ran for president, he said during an exchange with a voter that he attended law school at Syracuse University on a full academic scholarship, that he finished in the top half of his class in law school, that he was named the outstanding student in the political science department as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware, and that he graduated from Delaware with three undergraduate degrees. Not a single one of those claims is true”.
Fox News reports that people are ripping on the paper: On Monday, Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler drew fierce criticism after saying he did not plan to maintain a “database” for President Biden’s falsehoods beyond his first 100 days in office.
“I have learned my lesson,” Kessler tweeted. “‘Learned my lesson’ means who knows what the next four years will bring.” The Post famously maintained a database of former President Donald Trump’s falsehoods during his entire term in office. Kessler called it a “wild ride.”
“We will keep doing fact checks, just not a database,” he added. In a write up in the soon-to-be-mothballed database, the Post wrote the “Joe Biden era has offered a return to a more typical pattern when it comes to a commander in chief and his relationship with the facts — one that features frequent spin and obfuscation or exaggeration, with the occasional canard.”
The criticism mentioned the clear signs that Democratic presidents are being treated differently.
Fox News reached out to Kessler for comment, but he did not respond.
