During a speech yesterday to the International Association of Fire Fighters legislative conference, Sen. Ted Cruz pointed out that the IRS tax code contains more words than there are in the Bible. A fact check by the Washington Post’s Michelle Ye Hee Lee found the claim true, but labeled it a “nonsense fact,” and as such it didn’t merit being labeled as either factual or inaccurate.

“Nonsense fact”? Yep, that was the “fact check” ruling:

Amanda Carpenter, communications director for Sen. Ted Cruz, tore the “fact check” to pieces:

If Cruz’s true claim wasn’t deemed worth labeling “true” or “false” what was the point of the article?

Maybe a WaPo fact check about why this particular fact check didn’t contain any fact checking is in order.
