The Washington Post is one of the leading purveyors of fake news and misinformation in the entire media landscape.
Post “reporters” continue to give away the game that they are really Democrat Party activists.
And The Washington Post now owes this Republican Senator one giant apology.
Media “fact checkers” are the new gate keepers social media companies use to censor online speech.
But the dirty secret is these so-called “fact checkers” are really political operatives who launder Democrat Party talking points into the press by labeling what the Left says as truth and everything conservatives say as lies.
The latest example of this fraud occurred when The Washington Post was forced to retract a so-called “fact check” calling Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton a liar.
Back in March, when Democrats rammed through a nearly $1.9 trillion socialist spending bill to bail out Blue States for locking down their economies, Senator Cotton argued the spending bill would send $1,400 checks to convicted murderers like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The left recognizes that this was a bad idea and that they're going to pay a price at the polls.
Get ready for campaign ads.
So liberals and their media allies are trying to spin it for damage control.

The Washington Post supposedly “fact checked” Cotton and claimed Cotton did not understand the intentions of the Democrats who drafted the legislation.
“The goal was to get checks out as quickly as possible without burdensome regulations,” The Post wrote at the time. “It’s hard to craft rules that target mass murderers without also penalizing the families of people in prison for much less heinous crimes.”
However, unsurprisingly it turned out Senator Cotton was right.
Tsarnaev received a $1,400 stimulus check and Cotton’s office demanded The Post print a retraction.
The Post’s alleged “Fact Checker” agreed but threw in a caveat to claim Cotton’s 100 percent true statement was only “mostly true.”
The Post wrote:
Cotton primarily received the Two-Pinocchio rating because his comments lacked context. He suggested this problem was the result of something Democrats did, when he had previously voted for legislation with the same language that allowed for checks to be issued to prisoners. He also made it clear that he intended weaponize this debate for campaign ads.
Still, Cotton’s predictive powers should be acknowledged. He said the Boston bomber would get a stimulus check — and Tsarnaev did. Now, if the government is successful, this money will go to victims. So Tsarnaev still will not keep it. But in retrospect, the use of the phrase of “scaremongering” was inappropriate. Cotton had raised a legitimate issue of concern, even if he framed it in a political way. The term “hyped up” in the headline went too far as well.
“Missing context” is a phrase so-called “fact checkers” use to diminish factually true statements made by Republicans.
Tom Cotton made a 100 percent true statement about the Boston Marathon bomber receiving a stimulus check.
But The Post dragged out the “missing context” line to claim that when Cotton made his factual statement, he did not include the Democrat Party’s talking points to defend the bill.

The Fake News Media just proved they’ll truly sink to any low to smear “evil” Republicans
Democrats routinely gang up against Republicans.
They know their Fake News Media allies will back any of their political plays.
And the Fake News Media just proved they’ll truly sink to any low to smear “evil” Republicans.
The Senate was finally able to get together and pass the PACT Act, which provides funding for veterans who suffered from being exposed to noxious burn pits in Afghanistan.
The deal passed the U.S. House, but was held up in the Senate after Democrats attempted to pull some of their typical shenanigans at the very last minute.
Senator Pat Toomey, one of the Republicans targeted by the Left, explained on an appearance on Fox News that this is “the oldest trick in the book.”
“People take a sympathetic group of Americans — and it could be children with an illness, it could be victims of crime, it could be veterans who’ve been exposed to toxic chemicals — craft a bill to address their problems, and then sneak in something completely unrelated that they know could never pass on its own, and dare Republicans to do anything about it…” Senator Toomey explained. “Because they know they’ll unleash their allies in the media and maybe a pseudo-celebrity to make up false accusations to try to get us to just swallow what shouldn’t be there.”
Senator Toomey was taking a thinly veiled shot at supposed “comedian” Jon Stewart who has been railing against Republicans for calling foul on the Democrats’ stunt, playing the aforementioned “pseudo-celebrity making up false allegations” role to perfection.
Stewart previously got into a heated debate with conservative journalist and commentator Jack Posobiec, a Navy veteran, but the two came to an agreement to work to get the bill over the finish line.

The bill passed one day later.
However, the Democrat Media Complex still took the time to get plenty of shots in on Republicans.
“Senate passes bill to aid veterans exposed to toxic burn pits after Republicans had stalled measure for days,” a Washington Post headline read.
The article could have been framed in a way that held Democrats accountable for trying to pull some of their dirty tricks at the last minute, but of course Jeff Bezos-owned Post wouldn’t dare do that.
NBC News’ Lester Holt similarly framed Republicans as the “villains,” pretending Republicans had “blocked” the bill for reasons even he couldn’t name.
“Just breaking tonight, the Senate reaching a deal on a bill to expand health care benefits for veterans exposed to burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan days after it was blocked by Republicans,” Holt claimed.
The same narrative was trumpeted by multiple left-wing outlets and talking heads.
It’s the left-wing bias that the corporate-controlled media tries to hide.
And it’s how Democrats use the media to forward their agenda.
Tiffany Cross may have just launched a left-wing war with this stunning comment about The View
MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross might be the most radical leftist on cable news.
She constantly makes racist and demeaning statements about Republicans.
Now Tiffany Cross may have just launched a left-wing war with this stunning comment about The View.
The daytime talk show The View and MSNBC’s entire lineup serve the exact same purpose – to prop up Democrats and slander Republicans.
The one difference is that MSNBC does sometimes try to put an intelligent sheen on their extremist message, whereas The View is merely an utter clown show.
But MSNBC host Tiffany Cross is doing her absolute best to bring the left-wing circus – complete with the bearded ladies – that is The View to her network every time she opens her mouth.
Like the time Cross referred to black Republicans at the Republican National Convention as a “minstrel show.”
Now, Tiffany Cross is accusing The View of courting “racist white people” by hiring Never Trump hatchling Alyssa Farah Griffin to be the show’s new token Republican punching bag.
“Now, remember, in 2016, after many, many members of the news media helped usher in this lunatic into the White House, the takeaway for many executives was, guys, we in the news didn’t pay enough attention to racist white people,” Cross claimed. “That’s how we got those ridiculous terms like white economic anxiety and those voters of the Heartland segments with a bunch of white Midwesterners and coffee shops that have never seen folks who look like this right here.”
“Then there were all the deep dives in the Trump country and print profiles of Trump supporters,” she continued. “Well, here’s the update: They appear to be doing the same thing again. Variety reported this week that former Trump aide Alyssa Farah Griffin will be the latest to join ABC’s The View.”
Of course, this is nothing more than Cross’ attempt to coax Democrats into doubling down on the same played out narrative that Donald Trump only won in 2016 because of “racism.”
It’s the only explanation Democrats have — or need, apparently — for any of their political failures.
After all, their failures couldn’t possibly be explained by simply looking at their garbage policies, pathetic track record, elitism, authoritarianism, radical cultural views, racism, and the like.
At the same time, Cross did however, accurately paint Alyssa Farrah Griffin as a bad actor who is simply desperate for a television gig.
“Now, ABC has not made a formal announcement, but let’s please not forget that this tawdry turncoat Trump loyalist quickly morphed into an opportunist after voluntarily taking jobs with the Trump administration, signing on to work for his regime knowing full well what Trump represented,” cross continued.
Both the Left and Right have pegged Alyssa Farrah Griffin as untrustworthy, but now she’s the Left’s problem.
She will dutifully shill for whatever establishment Democrats want, all while pretending to be a one of those “real Republicans” the Never Trumpers are always talking about.
Besides her new co-host on The View, Ana Navarro, has proven taking such a route can prove to be a very lucrative path in today’s so-called mainstream media.
This so-called “expert” just unveiled the Left’s replacement for COVID hysteria just in time for November
The last two years of the pandemic have been devastating for America.
There’s no telling the depths of damage public health “experts” and the corporate-controlled media have done.
Now this so-called “expert” just unveiled the Left’s replacement for COVID hysteria just in time for November.
COVID hysteria has slowly but surely petered out.
The American people — and the world’s population at large — are sick of nonsensical, authoritarian pandemic restrictions.
But the leftist global elites refuse to relinquish the emergency powers they arrogated during COVID.
That’s why the so-called “experts” are now relentlessly pushing Monkeypox as the next big thing.
During a recent appearance on the network, CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen even went so far as to declare it’s time for the Biden administration to declare another “state of emergency.”
“I do think it’s time for the U.S. to declare a state of emergency… because that will allow for a much better-coordinated response…” Dr. Leana Wen claimed. “It will allow the Biden administration to appoint a Monkeypox Czar to oversee these efforts. It will also allow for more resources to be put into this as well. I hope that the window hasn’t closed.”
“I think that there is still an opportunity just to underscore why this is the case,” she continued. “Monkeypox may not be as fatal as a lot of other illnesses, but we don’t want another disease that we have to worry about in perpetuity if it takes hold here.”
This perfectly sums up the desires of the establishment elites.
They are desperate to make Monkeypox the new COVID.
However, according to the World Health Organization and others, Monkeypox has spread almost exclusively within the group of “men who have sex with men,” meaning it is not an airborne pathogen.
The World Health Organization stated that 98% of Monkeypox cases have involved gay sex, or prolonged close contact with gay men who had contracted the disease through sex.
For this reason, the Left has been twisting themselves in knots not to stigmatize the LGBT community, so much so that there has been pushback to warnings about the risk to gay men.
“Also, we don’t want it to affect the most vulnerable, including young children and pregnant women,” Dr. Wen continued. “That hasn’t really happened as much yet here in the U.S., but we want to contain it before that happens.”
The experts are already trying to widen the risk population for Monkeypox, both to seize more power and protect their identity politics charade.
The spread of the disease could largely be tamped down by simply avoiding promiscuous sex until the outbreak abates, but the Left is uncomfortable doing that.
Apparently, America needs a new “health czar” to speak such obvious truths.
