Benghazi: Legacy media are not just fools. They are becoming evil

‘Fact-Checkers’ vs. the Benghazi Mom

When FBI Director James Comey came before the press to deliver his bizarre proclamation — that Hillary Clinton had lied relentlessly about her private email server but shouldn’t be prosecuted because no prosecutor would ever dare take her to court (even though prosecutors all over the country rose to say they’d do so immediately) — many were shocked and angered. One industry was thoroughly embarrassed: the media-elite “fact-checker” websites and projects, from PolitiFact to FactCheck.org to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker column.

These so-called guardians of truth felt forced to revise and upgrade their “Pinocchio” counts to reflect the fact that so many pivotal things Clinton had claimed about her emails turned out to be falsehoods. It’s all well and good that they had to change their rulings, but how effective were these watchdogs in the first place? More.

Hey. You can save on litterbox liner by using their products.

To Politi-“Fact,” Clinton’s record of lying about her server doesn’t tilt the scales of credibility. In another article on Monday night, the website suggested grieving relatives might have “fuzzy” memories. Adair even suggested that even if Clinton was incorrect, she might not have been lying: “If she did say something about the video, would it have been an intentional lie? It’s very possible that this is one of the many conflicting pieces of intelligence that the administration was working with at the time.”

Sure.

Adair and his ilk aren’t fact-checking in any way. They’re masquerading in fact-checker costumes to engage in shameless speculation, blather and spin favoring democrats.

Reality check: No surprise in a world where simple fabrication has become an everyday part of elite legacy journalism that will attempt to seek protection from independents if Clinton is elected.

With luck, they will die by what they have come to live by.

The reality is, however, that the growing numbers who depend on the government to feed, clothe, and house them will just tune out these problems. It’s the others who must take heed what to do.
