Left-wing Politifact to target pundits, media figures - probably also from a left-wing perspective

PolitiFact, a left-wing fact-checking site that poses as objective, will expand its vital services to Democrats and the mainstream media by expanding its target to include political pundits and media figures, not just politicians.

Though PolitiFact has frequently discredited itself with numerous dishonest "fact" checks, and outright laughable ones that are almost always designed to shut down conservative criticism of a Democrat or left-wing policy, over the years the outlet has become increasingly useful to the mainstream media.

Citing the left-wing outlet as an objective fact-checker, the media then give themselves license to dismiss Republican lines of attack and even go a step further by using the phony fact-check to undermine the GOP's credibility.

Obviously, by expanding its targeting of conservatives to include talking heads and media figures, the media will have even more weapons at its disposal with which to attack the GOP.

Celestial - Why don't you try actually reading the linked articles, so you can look smart and not ignorant? 

If you are honest, you too can tell that Politificact is liberally biased. 

Hell, the MSM NEVER apologizes when they are intentionally wrong. So are you saying that when someone takes responsibility for their errors, they are worse than someone who doesn't even do so?

You probably stole cookies from the cookie jar when you were a kid, huh? I can tell.
