FactCheck fails to check the Facts (Again)

Thanks to Tgirsch, we discover FactCheck continues to show its bias when attacking the NRA.

“(The NRA says he voted “four times” but we find record of only two votes.)”

Two words “Judiciary Committee”. An additional two votes from him against it.

Charges were initially filed against Demar but later dropped after public outcry. Not a word about that. Wonder why? Demar was fined $750 by the city and that’s not a ‘petty’ amount. Unless of course you also think $500 firearms are ‘disposable’. So Factchecks claim that 'nothing would have changed' is spurious at best.

So much for ‘factchecking’ on FactCheck.

These guys are so ticked off by the fact that the NRA decided to push back instead of meekly accepting "Factchecks" personal biases that they're not even really looking very hard and hoping people don't 'factcheck' them in their zeal to post as much against the NRA as they can.

It should be noted that the author of this latest hit piece , Mr. Brooks Jackson, as well as being co-author of the last one, is the Director of Annenberg Political Fact Check. Obviously we can not expect an individual who states :
“They are lying. This is what they do. This is how they make their money. Do these people have no shame? They are just making this up.

to show any sort of impartiality when it comes to the NRA. FactCheck must consider such to be "the best practices of both journalism and scholarship,"

DUH. Good lord.

These people should take a cue from Blagojevich (and George Ryan) and tell people that's not a fine, it's "just a fee." You can defend yourself from criminal attack, but you have to pay your $750 municipal self-defense fee.

Oh, and they get to pillory you as a criminal in the press. So what's the big deal?
