  •  PolitiFact LOVES Scott Walker (7+ / 0-)

    So many of his BS claims should be rated "pants on fire", especially his last one that they only rated "false".

    •  I know. I was pretty shocked to see 90% (9+ / 0-)

      rated as less than true.

      For all they try to gloss over for him, even for them it is hard.

      I wonder if anyone in editorial ever looked at the page they have up to realize how many times they have rated him false.

      "Only 10% of what Walker says is true." Great endorsement from the state's largest daily newspaper.

      Time to start throwing it in their faces :)

        is actually from Politifact, not a product of the MJS. MJS seems to be just a source for Politifact to analyze, and provides a link to their results.

          Yes, the page is housed on the PolitiFact server.

          But with the Journal's masthead and this very clear comment:

          "Powered by PolitiFact.com and JSonline.com."

          Whether they like the analyses or not, the Journal has clearly put their hame on them.

    •  Politifuct still sucks. Its the way they parse (4+ / 0-)

      the lies and bullshit. The way they twist and turn his lies around in order to make him look good is painful. Even when they know its flat out garbage, they still try to put lipstick on that pig. On the other hand, if they are being 'negative' about something he says or does, its a huge tell.

      Reluctant to cite them as a barometer of the truthiness of the walker administration,  if I have to..you can eat a bowling ball if you have too I will, if it helps to get his azz out.

      They need to give that Pulitzer back. Thanks PD
