It’s been over. They quit intimidating us when they couldn’t get something as simply reporting the weather correct. Oh sure, it’s taken some time for the poli-sci blogs to realize this, but most of us have been fact checking works of science. We’ve been laughing at the reporters for years now.
Still Breitbart has noted something different. But first, the punch line……
A media fact-checker walks into a bar with a duck on his head.
Bartender asks, “Can I help you?”
Duck says, “Yeah, get this liar off my ass.”
It’s official; the term “fact checker” is now a punchline.
Now their perspective…..
For four long years, I’ve waited for these disgracefully partisan left-wing fact checkers to implode, and this morning and last night it finally happened. And it happened under the weight of their own lies and shameless Obama-shilling.
This was inevitable after Politifact claimed that Barack Obama’s increase in federal spending was lower than any modern president. No, really.
This was inevitable when The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler called Romney a liar for saying a president who didn’t got to Israel didn’t go to Israel. No, really.
This was inevitable because the lies and misdirection and partisan flacking was getting so desperate, a tipping point had to be in sight, and last night it finally tipped.
Last night, before the applause had even died after VP nominee Paul Ryan’s masterful speech, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was calling Ryan a liar. Before the echoes of Ryan’s last words had even faded, Blitzer was telling America the fact-checkers would take issue with the speech.
Within minutes afterwards, the lying, disgraced media fact-checkers dutifully followed suit with a flurry of lying, disgraced checking of Ryan’s facts.
This was undoubtedly pre-planned and organized between Team Obama and his Media Palace Guards.
Hilariously, even though Paul Ryan never blamed Obama for closing a GM plant in his hometown or said the closing occurred during the Obama administration, the fact-checkers said he did and that Ryan was a liar for saying so. What’s even more hilarious is that the GM plant did close down months after Obama took office. Keep in mind here, I’m not talking about left-wing sites. I’m talking about CNN, PolitiFact, The Washington Post…
Be sure to go to the full article there’s some links there you may enjoy. But, if it isn’t really a turning point for fake fact-scheckers intimidating conservatives, what is it?
Yes, this is a turning point.
To his great credit, our nominee Mitt Romney was ahead of this curve in refusing to cave (as John McCain often did) to these Obama-worshipping propagandists. Drop dead, Romney told the media fact checkers, and he did so publicly.
Never again will these left-wing hacks have an impact on American politics beyond being just another Democrat Talking Point Machine like every other “objective” media outlet. Never again will Republican candidates cower before these liars.
This is huge loss for the corrupt media. And they know it. But they Kamikazee’d themselves for Obama and only have themselves to blame.
Yep, the jig is up. The mask has been removed. Media fact-checkers lie, they’ve always lied, and now everyone is calling them liars. Today is a great day for truth and democracy.
Don’t get me wrong, the fight against these disgraceful fact-checkers must never cease. But today the tide of battle turned and, if we are vigilant, we will live to see the end of this disgraceful era.
The turning point is that not only do we all know they’re liars, the world will now know they are liars. It is a turning point and a great day for truth and democracy.
Man, I hope you’re right.
If the truth has really arrived, we can’t lose.
They shot their wad. This morning I wrote about Obama doubling down on stupid, and so did the media checkers. They can’t pivot out of this. We have over 2 months to shout these things. We need to go the the NYTimes, the WaPo, HuffPo and present exactly these things in the discussion threads. And when they finally acknowledge that they lied, we need to remind the readers over and over again.
I agree, though the view times I’ve posted on those sites, my comment didn’t seem t appear long, if at all…
Right, but you have to look at it this way. Back when, there were probably less than 10,000 people actively engaged in the skeptic blogs. It took a long time but the numbers have easily increased 10 fold. Now there are millions of people actively engaged in this election. Armed with the truth. We just have to use our weapons.
There will still be some of the extremists who will refuse to look at the proof, just like the alarmists, but, the slide towards irrelevancy for alarmists preceded the fact checkers only by a couple years. Last night helped accelerate it.
The thing about last night and this morning is that there was such unanimity in the responses to their idiocy. Every blog I went to had the same theme. We all found the “fact checkers” bs and called them on it. Breitbart, the Daily Caller, TownHall, and and lots more. I went and found the welfare memo. Others found the actual closing of production for the plant, townhall did a total take down of the fact checkers on Ryan’s speech.
Maybe there is ‘hope’ for ‘change.’ Fight to good fight.
‘the’ good fight. Typing deficiency.
Reblogged this on Climate Ponderings.
“Pravda” is Russian for Truth.
Of course your fact-checkers have hijacked “truth”. They hijacked “liberal” and “progressive” before.
Every time some wing nut trots out a “fact checker”, I trot out the source. Surprisingly, they never bother to respond after that.
Exactly. It’s also demonstrative of the left’s willingness to simply accept what they are told. It’s why we had such a hard time making headway with the climate issue.
