Another day, another top-notch fact-check from Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler.
Here’s what he’s got for us today:

“By the numbers.” By whose numbers, Glenn?
There have been a lot of numbers used by public officials and the news media in recent days about the end of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. Here they are all in one place — and which numbers are missing. Where possible, the source of the information is included. We will update this as appropriate as more information becomes available, including noting whether numbers previously provided turned out to be false.
Interestingly, many of Glenn Kessler’s information sources just so happen to be members of Joe Biden’s administration. How convenient!
This isn't a fact check.

You're not checking facts. You're repeating assertions.

You literally just repeated administration talking points.

No, he literally did.

Man, anyone can be a fact-checker these days. As long as they’re willing to mindlessly regurgitate rather than actually check any facts.

Repeating quotes without verifying the data is not how fact checking works. Glenn, each week you become a bigger clown.

Well, if the clown shoe fits …
How is posting the presidents talking points the equivalent to “fact checking” in your eyes?

Because it serves the right narrative.

Hey Glenn, serious question:
Does the White House at least give you the courtesy of a reach-around? https://t.co/iin6p5aeaV

It’s the least they can do.
