PolitiFact tweaks the meanings of words in order to slap Ron DeSantis with another 'False' ruling

At this point, we fully expect PolitiFact’s “fact-checks” to favor liberals and Democrats. That’s just the way they’ve been for so long. So it’s not exactly a shock that PolitiFact has been gunning pretty hard for Ron DeSantis for a while. And now that he’s officially running for president, of course they’d be ramping up their push against him.


No, the part we’re surprised at — and will no doubt continue to be surprised at — is how lazy they’ve gotten. It’s almost like they’re just sitting around a table getting really drunk and pitching the stupidest ideas they can come up with.

Like, look at this recent “fact-check” of DeSantis’ assertion that Florida’s not banning books:

Just so you know how serious and careful and thorough PolitiFact is with their fact-checks, this particular one cites the sad case of Amanda Gorman’s poem being moved to a different spot in a school library.

Here’s the final ruling:

DeSantis said, “There’s not been a single book banned in the state of Florida.”

His argument hinges on county school districts, and not the state, deciding which books to remove or restrict. But school districts are making book decisions to comply with state law.

A press release from DeSantis said in March that 23 districts had removed 175 titles, which contradicts his argument that not a single book was banned.

We rate this statement False.


Not even Partly False. Or Mostly False. Just straight-up False.

To be fair, if we redefine what a ban is, then Ron DeSantis is definitely lying and definitely banning books all over Florida:

The American Library Association has spoken, everyone. Sure, they have a well known left-wing agenda, but they have “library” right in the name, so who are we to question their authoritah?

OK, but seriously, we’re not sure who still believes that PolitiFact has any credibility at this point, but whoever does needs to disabuse themselves of that notion immediately. Because clearly


PolitiFact just does not GAF about fact-checking anymore.

PolitiFact uses accurate statements from Ron DeSantis and J.D. Vance as evidence that the two Republicans are liars

PolitiFact is really struggling with the fact that Ron DeSantis was right about Alvin Bragg
