    Fact-Check: a political fact-checking website created by the St. Petersburg Times, which endorsed Obama in '08.
    'In 2003, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette described the St. Petersburg Times as a "usually liberal" newspaper.'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tampa_Bay_Times

    PolitiFact this week judged statements about the Arizona immigration law and Climategate. Guess what side these fact-checkers chose? If you guessed “Progressive/Democrat,” you’re a winner!

    'PolitiFact is not that honest fact-checker. And these aren’t isolated cases. Once widely regarded as a unique, rigorous and reasonably independent investigator of political claims, PolitiFact now declares conservatives wrong three times more often than liberals. More pointedly, the journalism organization concludes that conservatives have flat out lied nine times more often than liberals.'

    PolitiFact.com is a project operated by the Tampa Bay Times,...also known as the St. Petersburg Times,

    Objectivity not in store.

    Yep.. Fact Check is nothing but a liberal LIE RAG.. Nothing more.. Mitt Romney told the truth about so many things and now look at all of the lies this ASSHOLE PRESIDENT has told. VP Biden was just caught in a DESPICABLE LIE using dead Amish children at that school who were murdered. I started a thread on it.. Vice President Liar Sir

    The Weekly Standard? A radical wingnut publication? No thanks, I'll wait for "credible" reporting on the matter...

    That's how the radical right works. When they don't like something, just lie, the ignorant GOP sheep will believe it, just like the trolls in this thread have proven.

    the jeep plant in detroit has added 1100 jobs in the past six months, producing jeeps for the us market.

    there is a jeep plant opening in china to produce jeeps for the chinese market.

    is it painful to be as, oh, i'll be kind and call it gullible, as you are?

    would you like to buy a bridge?
