(Natural News) PolitiFact’s lie of the year is “Lies about the Jan. 6 Capitol attack and its significance.”
(Article by Don Surber republished from DonSurber.Blogspot.com)
But it was PolitiFact’s version of the January 6 protest inside the Capitol that was the big, fat lie.
PolitiFact has a lengthy history of lying to serve the Marxists and Maoists in Washington.
In 2008, it vouched for Obama’s ridiculous claim that you can keep your health plan. Obamacare was designed to kill or make extremely expensive individual health insurance plans. Only after his election, passage of Obamacare, and his re-election did PolitiFact admit Obama lied. Repeatedly. In 2013, PolitiFact named it its lie of the year. That itself was a lie. He did not say it in 2013. He said it in 2008 when PolitiFact assured one and all that it was true, true, true.
Forbes — hardly a conservative publication — said in 2013, “Pants On Fire: PolitiFact Tries To Hide That It Rated ‘True’ in 2008 Obamacare’s ‘Keep Your Health Plan’ Promise.”
How can any lie top that?
In 2017, PolitiFact’s lie of the year was, “Russian election interference is a ‘made-up story.'”
But the Russian story was a cockamamie story made up by Hillary’s campaign. 4 years later, John Durham’s investigation has clearly shown this to be true. Yet PolitiFact continues to call it a lie.
That was not the only lie PolitiFact told that year. It called President Trump a liar for saying Obama used the FBI to spy on him and his campaign.
It quoted Comey, who lied to Congress and said, “With respect to the president’s tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets and we have looked carefully inside the FBI.
“The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components. The department has no information that supports those tweets.”
Comey signed the FISA applications to authorize the domestic spying. Transcripts from that wiretapping were given to the New York Times which indeed called it wiretapping in a front-page story on Inauguration Day.
PolitiFact aided and abetted his perjury.
This year, PolitiFact went full-blown Pinocchio as it misrepresented the protest at the Capitol.
It began its tall tale, “Shortly after 2 p.m. on Jan. 6, supporters of President Donald J. Trump breached the U.S. Capitol, turning the seat of American democracy into the scene of an unforgettable crime.”
Was it a crime scene when protesters stormed the Senate building when Kavanaugh was up for the Supreme Court?
The fairy tale said, “After marching down Pennsylvania Avenue at Trump’s urging, the rioters had overwhelmed police surrounding the Capitol. They pushed past them, stripped them of their weapons, dragged them to the ground, sprayed them with chemical irritants, beat them, bludgeoned them, or tased them.”
None of that happened.
The early reports were wrong. In fact, police killed one unarmed protester — Ashli Babbitt.
PolitiFact did not say her name.
It is bizarre.
But then again, so was saying Obama did not lie about keeping your health plan.
PolitFact is the best example I know of what is wrong with American Journalism in the 21st century. It lies repeatedly and with no shame.
