I have to admit, the Politifcat scam is one of the great scams of all time. Argue subjective political arguments under the guise of "fact checking." And the look alikes Politifact has spawned are every bit in the tank as the original. So this relevation is really no revelation at all.
Rush Limbaugh has labeled the Mainstream Media as "the State Run Media." As the Weekly Standard points out, it looks like Team Obama wrote this editorial. Think of what an incredible con this is. An allegedly impartial observer who is really in the tank for one side runs a racket where it allegedly measures the veracity of both sides fairly. This is straight out of the former Soviet Union. A newspaper called "Truth" brands opposition of the state liars. And then President Obama uses them as defense in a debate.
Sure, they're smart enough to throw conservatives the occasional bone. If the pigeon doesn't win a hand every now and again, he'll leave the table. This is why I urge conservatives NEVER to reference Politifarce, even when it finds in their favor. You'll never win when the house is dealing from a stacked deck.
