Hoystory: Your fact check of the day

Welcome Hoystory readers!

Big thanks to Matthew Hoy for the mention on his site.

PolitiFact is currently engaged in full damage control after their recent favorable rating of a Joe Biden statement upon noting the sharp contrast with the conclusions at two other well known fact-checking outfits. We're working on a more detailed review of the issue but for now Hoy has a succinct account of the sophistry.

Highlighting PolitiFact's bias hasn't always been as popular as it is now and Hoy was one of the first to do so. His critiques of PolitiFact have always been spot-on and extremely well written. We're flattered by the shout-out.

You can read our reviews of his work here and you can read Hoy's PolitiFact posts on his site here.
