Last year during the health care debates, PolitiFact rated this statement by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn, false: “Ezekiel Emanuel, one of President Obama’s key health care advisers, “says medical care should be reserved for the nondisabled. So watch out if you’re disabled.”Fikes offers a detailed takedown of his chosen example along with some trenchant observations of PolitiFact's approach to fact checking.
I think Bachmann was mostly right, after examining the evidence she presented. PolitiFact misrepresented that evidence, following guidance from an Obama Administration spokesperson.
Fikes' review overlaps somewhat with a criticism I did some months after his on the same PolitiFact fact check.
I recommend his longer and more thorough version.
