A new and improved Fact checking – media bias – organization is making its way around the world of news – creatively calling themselves ‘media bias fact check’. Organized in 2015, their tag line is ‘the most comprehensive media bias resource’. The founder/editor Dave Van Zandt states that he uses volunteers to do his bidding and that he has a degree in communications. Some of his fact checking point pieces link back to PolitiFact, another fact checking media bias organization. Many, if not most, of these unbiased unaffiliated fact check checkers are hugely biased and left leaning and are promoted by Facebook as the real deal.
In actuality, they aren’t remotely the real deal, and so incredibly biased it could be comical, except that some people actually believe them.
One of PolitiFacts latest scourge was to call Trump a half-liar because he said the Democrats wanted the wall before he wanted the wall. According to PolitiFact, not all Democrats wanted the wall, just Hillary, Schumer, and Obama. Secondly, they didn’t build a wall – they built a fence. Really! Therefore, Trump lied. Really! That is their logic and rationale.
PolitiFact is funded by the uber liberal Knight Foundation, and it’s CEO, Alberto Ibarguen, who are heavy donors to Clinton. Other liberal donors include, Ford Foundation, Democracy Fund, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The Democracy Fund was created by Pierre Omidyar of eBay and donated heavily to Hillary, Obama and Pelosi. A prevue of their site is much like reading the Washington Post – it is a swarmy replication of anti-Trump, anti-Hannity, pro-Obama cheap-o-meter garbage.
In 2018, The Poynter Institute acquired PolitiFact. The Poynter Institute receives its funding from Omidyar, Bill and Melinda Gates, Google, Open Society Foundations, National Endowment for Democracy and the Park Foundation.
The National Endowment For Democracy is funded by none other than the US Congress. The President of NED is Carl Gershman who previously served as Executive Director of Social Democrats USA, and was an officer of the Young Peoples Socialist League. In 2006, he laughingly stated that he’s not really a Socialist, he’s now a Democrat…
PolitiFact now utilizes a live fact stream whereby they claim the moment a politician makes a statement on television, it is fact checked for being true or false which means a) they have to make an analysis within seconds, and b) john Q public is immediately streamed a Democrat liberal bias.
While PolitiFact desperately highlights the fact that they won a Pulitzer Prize, a) The Pulitzer has been discredited routinely for only rewarding liberals – over a 31 year span only 5 conservatives won prizes for commentary, and b) in order to be considered for the prize, you enter yourself and pay an entry fee. For example, the current administrator on the board formerly worked for the liberal – New York Times. Essentially it is much like Hollywood’s Golden Globes, wherein liberal Hollywood honors liberal Hollywood.
So what we have is an unbiased, unaffiliated fact checker organization funded by Socialists, Democrats, and Soros that is promoted as the Real McCoy by Facebook to shut down Trump, bloggers and conservatives as ‘false’ while regurgitating fake news.
Snopes has been around since 1994 and was created by David and Barbara Mikkelson. It too has claimed to be unbiased, unaffiliated, and just a good ole boy urban legend outfit that happens to be used by MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, and Forbes.
Snopes was fact checked by Factcheck.org which gave it an A+++. Factcheck.org is owned by the Annenberg Foundation and was launched by former CNN reporter, Brooks Jackson. No bias there… In 2015, Barbara and David Mikkelson went through a very nasty, bitter, scandal fueled divorce in which she claimed that he was spending their ad money like it was jelly beans, hiring prostitutes, and looting the company. Barbara filed a lawsuit. He countersued. David is now sole owner of Snopes has remarried and hired on his staff, Elyssa Young, a former escort and porn actress. In 2004, Elyssa ran for Hawaii’s 1stCongressional District as a Libertarian and lost flatly. David has also hired as one of his principle fact checkers, Kim LaCapria, whose former experience includes her own blogosphere site, Vice Vixen, an exploitive site that discussed sex, sex toys, hedonism and fetishes. She brags that she is high on pot when she writes for Snopes.
Many of the Fact Checking sites are so biased it is absurdity at its finest, or lowest, it is a form of censorship, it is replete with fakery and anonymity. They are supported and funded by liberal Democrats bent on feeding the public a Mockingbird of information. Basically, they work for the same liberal media they fact check… Coockoo…
