Liberal news outlets dedicated the last four years to attacking every thing former President Donald Trump said. Supposed ‘fact checkers’ would deliver any angle or spin they could just so they could claim Trump lied and feed liberal dissent across the nation.
Now, according to the chief fact checker at the Washington Post, the paper ADMITTEDLY won’t even bother to check anything that Joe Biden publicly mumbles.
The Post told The Daily Caller that it does “not have plans to launch a Biden database at this time,” with the Post’s director of communications Shani George adding that “The database of Trump claims was started a month after Trump became president as a way to not overwhelm our fact-checking enterprise, where the core mission is to explain complex policy issues.”
Glenn Kessler of the Post, who was in charge of the ‘fact checking’ team, tweeted last week, claiming that the paper had found over THIRTY THOUSAND claims by Trump to be false:
In a recent appearance on CNN, Kessler explained that he won’t be leading any fact checking into Biden because “I assume the Biden presidency will be a lot like the Obama presidency, and that they will be responsive, and will be able to quickly back up what they’re saying.”
Over the weekend, Kessler claimed that when he asked the Biden administration to back up five statements in a recent speech, they came back to him immediately:
However, as Newsbusters points out, the documents Kessler received were “from liberal think tanks like the Brookings Institution, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, and poverty analysts at Columbia University backed by liberal foundations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.”
Look, folks. The Obama years revealed the death of journalism. Mainstream media sold their souls and allowed themselves to become the political war vehicle for Democrats and far-left nut jobs. They destroyed their integrity the moment they learned they could whore themselves off to China at top dollar.
We are going to be hard pressed, over the next four years, to see any larger news outlets take a stand and call out Joe Biden for lying. Thankfully, The Federalist has already put together a list of lies Biden has told in the first few days of his Presidency, and even the New York Times notes that Biden has told bizarre stories about things he’s done in the past that have no basis in truth.
