Tim Graham: Fact-checkers vs. Trump – here’s what they are too biased to recognize

In August 2016, The Washington Submit promoted a brand new e book by its reporters titled “Trump Revealed” that sounded an alarm. A e book blurb from USA At the moment introduced, “Any voter who just isn’t already dedicated to Trump‘s trigger will discover loads of motive to suppose lengthy and onerous about whether or not to help him after studying this e book.”

The Submit wrote no e book in 2016 titled “Hillary Clinton Revealed.” Nobody wanted a warning about her.

Now The Submit is selling a brand new election-year e book by their “fact-checker” squad: chief Glenn Kessler and his lieutenants Salvador Rizzo and Meg Kelly. The title is “Donald Trump and His Assault on Reality: The President’s Falsehoods, Deceptive Claims, and Flat-Out Lies.”

It can land softly on the liberal bookshelf subsequent to the opposite 2020 opus written by Submit reporters, “A Very Steady Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America.”

Sadly, a newspaper advert for the Kessler e book quoted President Donald Trump as boasting, “I’ve the best financial system within the historical past of this nation” and dated it Dec. 18, 2020. It is unhappy when your fact-checker commercials comprise obtrusive errors.

The Submit is well-known for beginning a database of Trump’s “false and deceptive claims,” and its depend lately handed 19,000. Trump has an off-the-cuff relationship with the reality. Even MAGA hat-wearing Trump boosters comprehend it. When he claims windmills trigger most cancers, it is easy pickings for “fact-checkers.” However a lot of The Submit’s Pinocchios rankings are awarded for boasting.

The commonest “lie” is Trump speaking up the “best financial system within the historical past of this nation.” The Submit has routinely flagged Trump for claiming black unemployment was lowest “within the historical past of our nation” when it has solely been measured since 1972.

Donald Trump just isn’t a dictator. No person’s jailing anybody at The Washington Submit for sustaining anti-Trump databases and screaming, “Democracy dies in darkness!” like a panic-stricken teenager on the entrance web page every single day.    

This similar nitpicking police have allowed former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden to boast there was by no means a scandal throughout their tenure. That is an apparent bald-faced lie. However Kessler wrote in 2017: “We’re going to go away this and not using a score. As we famous, scandals are within the eye of the beholder.”

There is a Massive Lie on the finish of the “fact-checker” e book: a passage from web page 261, within the concluding chapter, titled “Towards a Resurgence of Reality.” It was plucked out and celebrated by CNN host Brian Stelter, since it is a favourite Massive Lie on the left.

The authors declare Trump is sort of a dictator: “A trademark of authoritarian regimes is to name reality into query – besides because the regime defines it. Russian President Vladimir Putin provides up a fog of disinformation to keep up energy, together with denying apparent information (corresponding to Russian involvement within the downing of Malaysia Airways Flight 17), spouting falsehoods and deflecting consideration with nonsensical comparisons (dubbed ‘whataboutism’).”

Then the authors quote former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul as saying, “A cumulative impact of all these ways is nihilistic debasement of the very idea of reality.”

This “authoritarian” lie was repeated when Kessler appeared on “Morning Joe” on June 2. Co-host Mika Brzezinzki stated Trump is not simply assaulting reality. “It is also an assault on our democracy.” Kessler stated, “Right.”

That is what Kessler calls a Bottomless Pinocchio, an often-repeated untruth.

We’ve got an election in November. Nobody has canceled it. However liberal journalists speculate that imaginary tyrant Trump won’t ever go away workplace if he loses … which is laughable since they’ve by no means accepted he was legitimately elected within the first place.
