We belatedly recognize a criticism Katz wrote back in August 2015 posted at the Ocean State Current:
A Rhode Island conservative can only be grateful, I suppose, that PolitiFact RI — the long-standing shame of the Providence Journal — managed to get the word “true” somewhere in its rating of the following statement from the RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity:Katz catches PolitiFact Rhode Island (the Providence Journal) rating a statement "Half True" for referring to a vaccine "mandate" just as the Providence Journal had done.
Rhode Island will become just the second state to mandate the vaccine … and the only state to do so by regulatory fiat, without public debate, and without consideration from the elected representatives of the people.
Who needs consistency when you're a fact checker?
