(TheFreedomFlag)- After spending years telling lies about President Donald Trump and repeatedly “fact-checking” him to the point of obsession, media outlets are now admitting that they do not intend to hold President Joe Biden to the same standard.
Glen Kessler who works for The Washington Posts “fact-checking” department published a tally of “false and misleading statements” made by President Donald Trump which consists of many exaggerations and falsehoods. Kessler claims that the president told 30,573 lies, and has remained largely unchallenged by the rest of the media.
If you’re a fact-checker working for a left-wing media outlet, you don’t have to worry about getting called out for lying…
A new report from The Daily Caller reveals how The Post doesn’t have any plans to hold Biden to the same standard.
“Trump’s departure also equals an end to having a false claims project for the current president, as The Post said it does ‘not have plans to launch a Biden database at this time,’” the conservative outlet revealed.
It’s shocking, but perhaps not surprising…and likely a gap that will be filled by another conservative outlet.
Shani George of The Post told the Caller that the database of claims made by the former president was started a month into his presidency “as a way to not overwhelm our fact-checking enterprise, where the core mission is to explain complex policy issues.”
“While we do not have plans to launch a Biden database at this time, we will continue to dig into the accuracy of statements by political figures of all party affiliations,” Shani added.
If they’re interested in politicians telling lies, they might want to check out the executive orders signed by President Joe Biden. After spending his campaign insisting that he wouldn’t ban fracking or destroy the fossil fuel industry, the new president has already destroyed 60,000 jobs by cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline project and has banned all new fracking.
Isn’t that a misleading claim?
During an interview on far-left propaganda network CNN, Glenn Kessler said that he wouldn’t be fact-checking Biden in the same way because he assumes the “Biden presidency will be a lot like the Obama presidency.”
WashPost ‘fact checker’ Glenn Kessler won’t count false Biden claims like Trump’s: “I assume the Biden presidency will be a lot like the Obama presidency, and that they will be responsive, and will be able to quickly back up what they’re saying.”https://t.co/PUg8z4uzIZ pic.twitter.com/EQAUyaRqSy

Which…told a lot of lies.
Can America stand four entire years of gaslighting from media pundits? Or will someone pick up the slack and document every single lie told by President Biden and his team?
Let’s hope for the latter.
