FAKE NEWS ALERT: Washington Post Shuts Down Presidential “Fact-Checking” Database After Biden’s First 100 Days


6,392 views

Folks, consider this article a class on how media bias works.

You see, media bias isn’t always about fake news.

Sure, they will spin stories or even exaggerate certain “facts” to bash Republicans and make Democrats look good.

But fake news isn’t always about manipulation.

Fake news is also what the news CHOOSES to cover vs. ignore.

The latest example of this is the Washington Compost.

Excuse me, I mean, the Washington Post.

They started the Presidential Fact Checker under President Trump.

They “fact checked” every statement he said.

Now, a Presidential Fact Checker isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

But…

It does look bad when you fact check a president of one party, and then TOTALLY GET RID of the Fact Checker for the President of another party.

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.

Is it because Biden is an honest man?

Of course NOT!

Is it because the Post has an agenda to push?

Well, we report, and you decide!

We really can’t make this stuff up.

The media bias is so obvious.

If you can’t see that the media is always trying to protect Democrats, then maybe you have your eyes closed.

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.”

It’s true that Trump was a font of misinformation (and disinformation) during his time in the Oval Office. But shuttering the presidential fact-checking database for Biden, and so soon into his presidency, is an ill-advised move.

For starters, this current president is an accomplished liar. He may not be as indiscriminate as Trump in what he will lie about, but he is more mendacious than a great many public officials. Shutting down the database is one thing, but for Biden, in particular, it is especially foolish.

Biden lied in April when he boasted his administration “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.

The president lied in October of last year 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. (Who even knows where he got this idea?)

Biden lied when he said he has enjoyed the backing of the NAACP every time he has run for office. Biden 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.”

By the way, these examples are all from just the past few months. There are plenty of additional examples from the president’s more than 40 years in Washington.

Biden is a notorious plagiarist and a serial fabricator. He lied about being shot at in Iraq. He lied when he claimed to have led the charge against Slobodan Milosevic. He lied about being the first in his family to go to university. He lied when he bragged he predicted the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He lied when he claimed that he “marched in the civil rights movement.” He lied when he claimed his wife and child were killed by a drunk driver.

Biden even made up an entire story about being arrested in South Africa for demanding to meet with an imprisoned Nelson Mandela.

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.

Here’s the truth: Biden is a liar.

There is plenty of material to fact-check, especially when you take a look at Psaki.

The reality is that the Post doesn’t have a good defense for this decision.

It truly appears like they are trying to push an agenda rather than report the news objectively.

Fortunately, it appears that there is some blowback building against the Washington Post.

As news of this decision spreads, people are realizing what’s happened to our media… and the people are angry.

Fox News reports that people are ripping on the paper:

Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler drew fierce criticism Monday 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 writeup 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.”

Kessler said the Post’s section was the most “comprehensive” fact-checking outlet of Biden’s presidency to date and encouraged readers to send him any Biden falsehoods his team may have missed from the first 100 days.

Critics jumped on Kessler’s admission, with some calling it a clear sign of liberal bias to acknowledge it would treat a Democratic president differently.

Fox News reached out to Kessler for comment, but he did not respond.

So what do you think?

What are other obvious cases of media bias FOR Joe Biden and AGAINST President Trump?
