They are a left wing site as of a few years ago.
"Politifact started off straight. As a partnership of Congressional Quarterly and the Tampa Bay Times (then the St. Petersburg Times) formed in 2007, the outfit won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the 2008 election. The partnership dissolved shortly after when The Poynnter Institute – the parent company of both outfits – sold off CQ.
The Florida journalists carried on alone, and their liberal tendencies became more obvious as the “Pants on Fire” rulings piled up on one side. By one count, from the end of that partnership to the end of 2011, the national PolitiFact operation has issued 119 Pants on Fire ratings for Republican or conservative claims, and only 13 for liberal or Democratic claims.
In another tally, just of claims made by elected officials, Republicans lose 64-10 over the same three-year period."
Look who is talking, someone who has posted almost exclusively biased conservative links to argue his points, like the Washington Times, wants to call someone out
You, clearly a hardcore conservative that dismisses anything any liberal says, but you want your opinion to stand as fact on this issue.
How many of the "lies" did that they fact checked were actually the truth? Hmmm?
You completely dodged answering that didn't you.
And in case you missed it, Polifact is actually fact checking a Daily Show segment, not making the argument themselves about Fox News being untruthful.
-You stated your opinion that you think Fox News is down the middle
-I laughed at that comment because I feel they are clearly biased
-If you read the damb survey in the article YOU POSTED that would make perfect sense since republicans/conservative and liberals/democrats have very different opinions about the station.
-You after making the claim, and getting rustled I laughed at it, demand I prove it wrong.
-I link an article consigning a Daily Show segment discussing the many times Fox News has spread lies
-And your only comeback is to try to shoot the messenger, not even refute the claims in the article.
So I ask, where is your evidence besides your opinion that they are down the middle? You made the claim, not me.
Does Politifact bend left, sure. It there selection bias in what the fact check, sure.
But go on any other fact checking website, and I'm sure the same story plays out the GOP and right being found being more dishonest.
But just like with NT calling you out on our ignorance posts about race, the problem must with everyone else, not the conservative right
