Fact-checking WaPo, PolitiFlack fact checkers: Lapdog media enables downplaying of #BenghaziGate lies

The Washington Post employs Glenn Kessler to be its “fact checker.” Yet, it seems he doesn’t need to check any pesky facts that are bad for President Obama. The other day, “The Fact Checker” printed a timeline of all the Obama administration lies regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi that led to the death of four Americans. Lies that went on for days. And days.

Some were flabbergasted that The Washington Post even printed the timeline, because it clearly shows the depth of the pathological lies uttered by this administration.

However, as “just a blogger” Ace of Spades shows, Mr. Kessler does not deserve a “bravo.” See, Mr. Kessler wouldn’t even check the facts he was forced to lay out.

We will leave it to readers to reach their own conclusions on whether this is merely the result of the fog of war and diplomacy — or a deliberate effort to steer the storyline away from more politically damaging questions. After all, in a competitive election, two weeks is a lifetime.

Um, what? Everything they said was a total lie, but whatever! Facts shmacts. Don’t read too much into them. Because, “fog” and all.

From Ace of Spades:

So when you wonder why these “Fact Checkers” rate Democratic claims as absolutely true twice as often as Republican ones, and Republican claims absolutely false twice as often as Democratic ones, keep this in mind: When Glenn Kessler has a series of Administration statements which were quite clearly false, by their own admission, he does not render a Fact Check at all, but invites the reader to conduct his own, but always keeping “fog of war” in mind.

Or as Fact Check might call it, if it bothered with a fact check: Entirely false, but see, it’s not their fault!

Which is the overall message they’re selling: Not our fault.

Bingo.

Another Twitter user  wonders when Politifact will issue its truth-o-meter rating. Or do they only save that for Romney statements? Or for lying about the Janesville plant?

Why? Because, flacks. The Obama cheerleading squad in the media cannot tell the truth. Because the truth hurts their idol. Evidently, being on the Obama squad means drinking the Cult-Ade until you are so drunk that you lose all sense of decency and honesty.

And Ace of Spades brings it all home with the truth about “real journalists,” also known as palace guards.

Yep. But they can no longer conceal it. They can no longer hide their bias at all; their desperate quest to provide cover for The One has exposed it for all to see. They’ve devolved into self-parodies, which would be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous. They are complicit in Obama’s lies and in his dangerous incompetence by enabling him.

Your move, lapdogs. Will you continue to try to cover for Obama’s dangerous incompetence and shameful lies? Will you shamefully continue to be perpetrators of #BenghaziGate yourselves?

Stay tuned.

    Boy, I’d love to see a 60 Minutes expose of this corrupt corporation like they’ve done faithfully for the last 30 years.

    Their policy is dis-information and lies

    Listen…people tend to turn the channel when they don’t hear what
    they want to hear, so these guys are really stuck now. If they report the
    truth, they will lose the few viewers they have left. Long ago they lost and credibility
    with the rest of us. Now they have to pander to the left just to keep their
    audience

    The lapdogs overshot bias a long time ago and now are in the realm of criminal malpractice. Just as doctors and lawyer can lose their license if they mess up badly enough (and it doesn’t even have to be intentional), these so-called journalists must be barred from their profession for the damage they’ve inflicted on our country.

    It appears it’s finally happened: we have a dictator and practically all media are now government spokesmen. If it wasn’t for FOX News and internet media like Twitchy, the takeover would be complete. I never thought I’d see it in my lifetime. The question is, if Romney loses, what do we do about it?

      STINGRAY- WHEN STALIN TOOK OVER THE COUNTRY THAT BECAME THE USSR– HIS FIRST MURDERS WERE THE NON-COMMUNIST PEOPLE WHO AIDED HIS TAKE OVER. WHY? STALIN KNEW THAT PEOPLE WHO WOULD FORSAKE THEIR FORMER COUNTRY, WERE NOT TO BE TRUSTED WITH FREEDOM IN HIS USSR. MARXISTS BELIEVE, “GRATITUDE IS FOR DOGS.” HE HAD A CONSTANT POLICY OF MURDERING HIS CLOSEST ASSOCIATES .IT WAS STATED OFTEN. “A CLOSE FRIEND OF STALIN’S IS THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE IN RUSSIA.”

      HE WOULD BRING A MAN CLOSE TO HIM, SINK IN WILD PARANOIA– AND HAVE HIM EXECUTED FOR ATTEMPTING TO TAKE OVER STALIN’S POSITION. A FEW YEARS BEFORE HE DIED (PROBABLY MURDERED) HE SAID THAT ONE OF HIS 12 DOCTORS WAS TRYING TO POISON HIM- HE EXECUTED 11 OF HIS 12 DOCTORS- NOT KNOWING WHICH ONE WAS GUILTY!!!!
      MANY HISTORIANS BELIEVE THAT WHEN AND IF AMERICA FALLS, THE MARXIST LEADERS WILL EXECUTE THE LIBERAL MEDIA FIRST– AS THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE FAITHFUL TO THEIR FORMER COUNTRY, AND WOULD NOT GET A CHANCE TO BE COVERT ENEMIES OF THE MARXIST DICTATORSHIP, SOMEHOW, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE AN UNFAIR FATE.

      Don’t forget about conservative talk radio. They were the first alternative media, and responsible for the conversion of many.

    When I was going to school during the Cold War, we were told that some of the journalists from Tass/Pravda were jailed for not reporting the STATE message and reporting facts instead.
    Now, in the USA, we seem to have morons (useful idiots) who actually promote socialism, communism, or whatever flavor you want to call totalitairism (sp) in a free society. WTF happened ?
    America, we can’t pull this BS, we HAVE to defeat it !

    There seems to have been a heavy fog over the area of Benghazi during the terrorist attack, so WH was unable to ascertain what actually took place. That makes more sense.

    The silver lining in all this is that no one actually believes the liberal media anymore except for liberals themselves.

    Basically, the democrat media complex is a liberal echo chamber that solely exists to make liberals feel better about their failed ideology and viewpoints- it doesn’t exist to reflect reality.

    To everyone else the liberal media is either an annoyance that we turn off or something to ridicule. Glenn Kessler’s fact checking has all the gravitas of a meter maid handing out parking tickets at the UN.
