View Diary: PolitiFACT openly admits FACTS are not its focus (119 comments)

  •  That statement you quote from Politifact (9+ / 0-)

    makes them seem even worse to me that I had thought.  In fact it is nonsensical:

    [Obama] was not making that linkage as strongly as we initially believed

    See that?  Now Politifact claims that Obama is still claiming a link between his policies and job creation.  He's just not making it as 'strongly' as they believed.

    So now his statement is 'Mostly True'?  Bizarre.

    And just to be sure we understand their dissimulation, they also write:

    But this morning we reviewed our work and decided to change it to Mostly True because we concluded Obama was not crediting his policies as directly as we originally thought.

    Obama is still crediting his policies, just not as directly, so now that becomes Mostly True?

    I bet these guys would be good Boy Scouts seeing the complexity of the knots they can tie themselves into.

    Proud to be a Truth Vigilante
