Shots Across the Bow: "PolitiFact Tennessee Fails Again"

Blogger "Rich" at Shots Across the Bow hits PolitiFact Tennessee amidships with a precisely aimed critique.

The PolitiFact Tennessee fact-check on a new farm labor rule from the Department of Labor went on at length musing about the reasons behind opposition to the new rule.  Rich points out that reading the text of the proposed rule should have put the musing to bed early:
Given that almost half of his piece on Alexander's statement consisted of Sullivan attempting to show nefarious motivations behind the statement, rather than its accuracy, and that a five minute perusal of the rules demonstrated that Sullivan's assumption was without factual basis, maybe it's time for PolitiFact to give  [writer Bartholomew] Sullivan a "Liar, Liar Pants on Fire" rating.
The piece is short, so set aside a minute and visit Shots Across the Bow to read it all.
