Ezra Klein a fact checker for MSNBC? That's like asking the mouse to do a report on the cat.—

When you’re calling in the creator of left-wing JournoList to check your facts, you’ve pretty much given up any pretense of fairness.
Then again, MSNBC doesn’t exactly hide its bias, so in a way Klein is a perfect fit for the left-wing cable network:
Oh good. Now MSNBC is checking in with Ezra Klein — formerly of JournoList and the American Prospect — for fact checking.—

To complete the hilarious circle MSNBC brings on Ezra Klein to "fact check"—

Ezra Klein doing MSNBC's fact checking? Could they get a more factually challenged person?—

Klein once spread false, libelous information about Twitchy CEO Michelle Malkin, admits he can’t understand the Constitution because it’s old, and lied about his JournoList, but let’s not be too hard on the former far left-wing American Prospect blogger. After all, he has been known to tell the truth on occasion.
Broken clocks and all.
Update: This morning Ezra Klein’s blog includes a post from Dylan Matthews that falsely claims the Janesville, Wisc., auto plant closed in 2008 “when George W. Bush is (sic) president.” In fact the plant closed in 2009 under Barack Obama. Who will fact check the fact-checkers?
