So, what I wrote is true. Punditfact found it to be true. They published an amusing presidential speechmaking anecdote that not only shows that it’s true, but makes you feel all warm-hearted about its being true. And then gave their rating: “Mostly False”. Ta-daa!We appreciate the absence in Maddow's post of any partisan whining. She just makes the justifiable assertion that PolitiFact does fact checking badly, and supports it with a pretty good anecdote. PolitiFact uses some sort of Associative Property of Quotations to blame Maddow for the questionable claim of a blogger who cited her book.
Usually, I ignore these guys. Yesterday, I made the mistake of responding to their letter, which I regret. Don’t feed the trolls. They included a line from my response to them in their rating, which I realize now may create the impression that I participated in this enterprise as if it was a real thing. It’s not a real thing: it’s Politifact. It’s terrible.
We'll repeat our position there's nothing inconsistent between PolitiFact treating liberals or Democrats unfairly and our position that PolitiFact displays an anti-conservative and anti-Republican bias. Maddow has a legitimate example of PolitiFact treating her unfairly.
