  • Corporate Media’s Obsession With Fact-Checking Is A Mission To Monopolize The Truth

    Facts matter, but to allow left-wing institutions to monopolize their definition does more to undermine the truth than any kind of misinformation making waves on the internet.In July, USA Today issued a “fact-check” that promoted a left-wing conspiracy theory asserting the Donald Trump campaign’s use of an eagle on memorabilia featured imagery of Nazi Germany.The claim: Trump campaign shirts feature imperial eagle, a Nazi symbolOur ruling: True https://t.co/3eCiYdgQvK— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) July 12, 2020“President Donald Trump’s campaign website recently unveiled a T-shirt that has come under fire because of design similarities between its logo and a Nazi symbol,” the “fact-check”...
  • This Series Of Fact-Checks On America’s Mission To Defeat COVID Exposes Media Hatred

    Fact checks on the United States' COVID vaccine timeline expose how outlets like NBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post are willing to attack American aspirations to score political points.Long gone are the days of Snopes assuring readers there isn’t a million dollars waiting in a Nigerian bank account for them. Distant are the happier times when fact-checks assured us there was no hook-handed hitchhiker killing our grandparents on the local highway. Today, we see an alliance between corporate media and corporate tech titans to squelch debate, silence conservatives, and literally censor regular Americans, dissenting scientists, newspaper competitors,...
  • USA Today Is Now Using Liberal College Kids To Censor Media They Dislike

    An alliance between Big Tech and leftist papers to suppress dissent is a deeply sinister thing. The amount of scorn required for this already troubling work to then be outsourced to partisan college kids is incredible.USA Today uses left-wing college interns to censor news media and opinion articles they disagree with, working hand in glove with unaccountable social media giants to suppress it. Newspapers earn a lot of money performing this task for Facebook and its related companies, and are proud of the job they do to police public speech, even bragging about it publicly on social media platforms.If you...

    NOQ Report ^ | 11/25/2020 | James Agresti
    A “fact check” by USA Today is defaming a Ph.D.-vetted study by Just Facts that found non-citizens may have cast enough illegal votes for Joe Biden to overturn the lawful election results in some key battleground states. The article, written by USA Today’s Chelsey Cox, contains 10 misrepresentations, unsupported claims, half-truths, and outright falsehoods.Furthermore, Facebook is using this misinformation to suppress the genuine facts of this issue instead of honoring its policy to “Stop Misinformation and False News.” Compounding this malfeasance, a note at the bottom of Cox’s article states that USA Today’s “fact check work is supported in part...

We'd like to thank @USATODAY for calling us out with this fact check. We will strive to do better. pic.twitter.com/5tk5ApSQjv — The Babylon Bee (@TheBabylonBee)...

    Not The Bee ^ | 9/28/2020 | Seth Dillon
    USA Today embarrassed themselves earlier when they fact-checked a ridiculous, over-the-top Babylon Bee story that nobody—not a single person—believed to be true. Here is the satirical story from The Bee that so-called journalists at a real news outlet somehow felt the need to debunk: The first paragraph reads: In a landmark ruling, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In a close decision, the judges on the court have ruled RBG's death unconstitutional and will block Trump from nominating a replacement. Instead of cracking a smile at an obvious joke...

    Nearly a majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump will beat former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential debates, according to a USA Today/Suffolk University Poll poll released Sunday. The poll found that 47 percent of Americans believe that Trump will win the debates, as opposed to 41 percent who think Biden will win. Forty-seven percent of Independent voters believe that Trump will win during the debates, whereas only 37 percent believe Biden will triumph. Curtis Saffi, an independent from Hampton, Georgia, said he plans to vote for Biden. Although, he admitted, “Trump is gonna run all over...

    George Will plans to break the habit of a lifetime for the 2020 election. The longtime conservative commentator said Monday he’ll cast his vote for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in order to help defeat President Donald Trump at the ballot box. It will likely be the first time that he has ever voted for a Democrat, Will told USA Today’s Susan Page during a conversation for The Aspen Institute. “I’m a big believer in parties, in party strength and party tickets. Not this year,” said Will, who quit the GOP in June 2016 in protest of Trump’s then-imminent nomination...

    USA Today updated a story tying the Trump campaign to a Nazi symbol of an eagle when critics condemned the paper, pointing out that eagles are prominent in America emblems, too. Last weekend, the paper published a “fact-check” claiming “Trump's campaign website recently unveiled a T-shirt that has come under fire because of design similarities between its logo and a Nazi symbol” and coming to the conclusion that the claims are “true.” After widespread backlash, the paper declared on Wednesday that the claim wasn’t true after all.

    USA Today added a note to an op-ed written by White House trade adviser Peter Navarro published by the newspaper that the Trump administration official’s op-ed criticizing Dr. Anthony Fauci didn’t meet the newspaper’s fact-checking standards. The editorial note written by USA Today editorial page editor Bill Sternberg appeared to be added to the online version of the story Thursday morning. Sternberg said the editorial board reached out to Navarro, who has been critical of infectious disease expert Fauci, to provide a response published as an “Opposing View” to pair with an editorial the board wrote praising Fauci as a...

    Newsbusters ^ | 07/01/2020 | Scott Whitlock
    Apparently, if you don’t like certain facts, you can just declare them false. That seems to be the thinking behind a USA Today “fact check” pretending that Democrats didn’t start the Civil War and found the KKK. But, they did. In a June 30 assertion USA Today rated “false,” the paper began, “Claim: The Democratic Party started the Civil War to preserve slavery and later the KKK.” The entire article essentially conceded that the Confederacy was run by Democrats, made up by Democrats, as was the KKK. But don’t blame the Democratic Party for that! USA Today writer Devon Link...

    Environmentalists in the media often seem to want to move the goalposts on their climate Armageddon predictions. USA Today ran a story headlined “Unsuitable for 'human life to flourish': Up to 3B will live in extreme heat by 2070, study warns” May 4, 2020. USA Today stated that “By 2070, up to 3 billion people are likely to live in climate conditions 'deemed unsuitable for human life to flourish.’” Citing a new study, USA today warned that “[w]ithout climate mitigation or migration, by 2070 a substantial part of humanity will be exposed to average annual temperatures warmer than nearly anywhere...

    In reporting on America facing a critical shortage of N95 masks during this global pandemic, wouldn’t it make sense to look at how that happened and why America is in this position? Not according to CBS. On Wednesday, CBS This Morning’s Dr. Jon LaPook somehow ignored the fact that Barack Obama depleted the supply of masks and never restocked. You’ll never guess who does get mentioned for blame. (Well, you probably will: Donald Trump.) Co-host Tony Dokoupil introduced, “A Department of Health and Human services report this week echoes urgent calls from hospitals for more supplies. One administrator cited a...

    Liberal media outlets were quick to shill for former President Barack Obama’s recent swipes at President Donald Trump. CNN, USA Today and The Washington Post all pushed liberal spin stories elevating Obama’s tweet, which took two veiled shots at the Trump administration. One alleged the administration’s denial "of warnings of a pandemic." Obama’s other shot bleated about the consequences of “climate denial” over Trump's decision to roll back his auto emission standards

    The Associated Press (AP) described the matter of Joe Biden’s leveraging of U.S. foreign aid to pressure Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating corruption at Burisma — a Ukrainian energy company upon whose board of directors Hunter Biden sat — in order to protect his second son as a “false narrative.” The AP echoed similar news media outlets’ mischaracterization of the above-mentioned event, including the New York Times, Snopes, NPR, USA Today, Vox, and the Washington Post. In a column identifying differing perceptions of political goings on being related to varying news media consumption patterns, the AP dismisses Joe Biden’s...

    When it comes to criticizing the press, William Donohue is what he is. The president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has never used a flyswatter when a baseball bat will do. This time, Donohue has released a statement about a USA Today story that had already caught my attention, one that ran with this headline: “The Catholic Church and Boy Scouts are lobbying against child abuse statutes. This is their playbook.” This feature is yet another cheap-shot attack that buries or blurs crucial information that readers need in order to understand this complex subject. How? Here...
