The "fact-check" -- which was used by Big Tech to justify censorship of "conspiracy theorists" all over social media -- was titled, "Tucker Carlson guest airs debunked conspiracy theory that COVID-19 was created in a lab" and was rated "Pants on fire!"
It now carries the following correction:
Editor’s note, May 17, 2021: When this fact-check was first published in September 2020, PolitiFact's sources included researchers who asserted the SARS-CoV-2 virus could not have been manipulated. That assertion is now more widely disputed. For that reason, we are removing this fact-check from our database pending a more thorough review. Currently, we consider the claim to be unsupported by evidence and in dispute. The original fact-check in its entirety is preserved below for transparency and archival purposes. Read our May 2021 report for more on the origins of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Is Politifact going to get blacklisted by Google and banned from social media for publishing this "misinformation"?
Are they going to have their PayPal and bank accounts closed?
Of course not, instead they're going to continue being artificially propped up by Google and shoved in everyone's face for social engineering purposes.
Google rewrote all their search algorithms after literally crying about Trump's win in 2016 and hired a 10,000-strong "army" of flaggers to blacklist all independent media while boosting propaganda mills like CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post and phony "fact-checkers" like Politifact and Snopes.
Facebook at the same time partnered with a bunch of "fact-checkers" like Politifact to censor news articles the establishment doesn't want people reading that were going viral on the site.
Google these days is practically unusable as they censor absolutely everyone who tells the truth or in any way bucks the establishment. Even Google Images is now heavily censored.
Google users never asked for this and nearly everyone is complaining about it.
The only one praising this censorship is the Anti-Defamation League under CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, who earlier this year in the pages of the New York Times hailed the CEOs censoring the internet as "the fourth branch of government" and the glue that's "trying to hold the country together."
