The Associated Press has chosen to dive in headlong to the fact-checking end of the pool, churning out a piece daily that exposes fake news. Sure, some days the AP tackles viral stories, such as the man who lost his testicles in an explosion while trying to make a scuba bong, but most are political in nature and focus on the Trump White House.

Surprisingly, President Trump came out on top in an AP fact-check Monday, which found that Judge James Robart’s claim that no foreign nationals from the seven majority-Muslim nations named in Trump’s executive order had been arrested since 9/11 was incorrect, and that the president therefore had “no support” for his travel ban.

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York also corrected the judge in a piece Monday.

Last summer, [the Justice Department provided] the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest … with a list of 580 people who were convicted — not just arrested, but tried and convicted — of terror-related offenses between Sept. 11, 2001 and Dec. 31, 2014.

The subcommittee investigated further and found that at least 380 of the 580 were foreign-born and that an additional 129 were of unknown origin. Of the 380, there were representatives — at least 60 — from all of the countries on the Trump executive order list. And with 129 unknowns, there might be more, as well.

That’s quite a few more than “none, as best I can tell.”

We’d read tweets from a few well respected celebrities that clearly explained Trump’s “Muslim ban” was developed based on which countries housed Trump real estate developments and which didn’t. That’s not correct, then?
