MSM Fact Checkers Get Scathing Pushback On Tim Scott

The Washington Post did a fact check about Tim Scott's ancestry in order to delegitimize claims he has made about his family and getting ahead in America.


Fact Checkers are a bunch of one sided cronies with an agenda.

It really never ceases to amaze me just how left-leaning all those people are. I have no doubt that Tim Scott is in a better place than previous generations of his family were.

That is how America works……progress. It worked for him, it works for me, and it works for everyone reading this.

When are people going to wake up to this liberal nonsense of “fact checking?”

They named it the perfect thing, didn’t they?

Who could ever question the people, group, or institution with the designation of “fact checker?”

This reminds me of when they named “The Patriot Act.”

Take a look:  

Here is the original article from The Washington Post

As regular readers know, we’re often interested in the “origin stories” of politicians — regular lines that they use over and over to explain their political motivations.

For Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, it’s the story of his grandfather, Artis Ware, who left school at an early age to pick cotton and, according to Scott, never learned to read and write. The tale of his grandfather fits in with a narrative of Scott moving up from humble circumstances to reach a position of political power in the U.S. Senate.

But Scott separately has acknowledged that his great-great-grandfather, Lawrence Ware, once owned 900 acres in South Carolina.

Census records are released 72 years after they are collected. So we dug into the South Carolina census records that are available between 1870 and 1940 — the 1890 census was lost in a fire and we could not locate relevant 1900 records — to close this gap in Scott’s narrative.

Fox News had more on the story: 

The Washington Post shocked readers on Friday for publishing a "hit job" on Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC, questioning his family history of going from a childhood picking cotton to the halls of Congress.

Scott, who was chosen Thursday to deliver the Republican Party’s response to President Biden's speech to a joint session of Congress on April 28, was the subject of a lengthy piece by the Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler.

"If you find yourself telling the grandson of a Depression-era Black man who spent his youth picking cotton to check his privilege, please for the love of all that is holy log off, WaPo," Washington Examiner executive editor Seth Mandel responded.

Pundit Stephen L. Miller added, "Democrats and media can lie about what Jim Crow was for weeks on end and not a word from Glenn or his newspaper. Not one. A black conservative Senator whose grandfather actually lived during Jim Crow comes along.. Glenn is 'Now wait just a minute.' This is a stunning new low."
