The NRA Quotes Hillary Clinton—And “Politifact” Lackey Rates It “Mostly False”

posted on October 19, 2016

In a breathtaking example of media political bias and duplicity, the Virginia editor of Politifact claims that an NRA flier—which merely quotes Hillary Clinton at a public event—is supposedly “mostly false.” The flier cites Hillary’s claim that the “Australian example,” in which the Australian government banned, confiscated and destroyed over 640,000 semi-auto rifles and pump-action shotguns, would be “worth considering doing it on the national level.” 

You can see exactly what Clinton said here, and you can read what Politifact’s Warren Fiske says about it here, but in summary, Fiske essentially says that Clinton didn’t mean what she said ... or didn’t say what she meant ... or something

Fiske has a long history of baldly partisan “reporting” and “fact checking.” Can there be any doubt when Hillary lies, and the media swear to it—but when the NRA tells the truth, the media label it “mostly false”? Maybe Politifact should rename itself “Politifarce.”
