While the Democrats are constantly talking about truth, fact-checking and “misinformation” but they’re the biggest offenders.
And when the president of the United States blatantly lies to America, the media covers for him.
The Washington Examiner reports:
President Biden was slammed by conservatives on social media after saying, “We didn’t have a vaccine,” when he came into office on Jan. 20.
“It’s one thing to have the vaccine,” Biden told CNN’s Anderson Cooper during a town hall event on Tuesday night. “Which we didn’t have when we came into office. But a vaccinator, how do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm.”
Conservatives, including former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, quickly took issue with Biden’s comment.
“Biden says there was no vaccine when he came into office,” McEnany tweeted. “That is abjectly FALSE. President Trump brought about the fastest vaccine for a novel pathogen in history. How does Joe get away with this?”
Here’s Biden getting the vaccine he claimed didn’t exist before he took office. Pretty easy one to fact-check… pic.twitter.com/GhPGrdLUD8

Here’s how he gets away with it – the so-called fact-checkers cover for him.
As I’ve noted before, so-called “fact-checkers” have done about as much damage to their own profession as national media journalists have in recent years, and there are no better examples of that than CNN’s Daniel Dale and the WaPo’s Glenn Kessler.
As you’ll note below, both of them responded to McEnany by spinning like tops to explain away Biden’s comments.
It was a verbal stumble, a typical Biden gaffe, as he had already mentioned 50 million doses being available when he took office. Ex Trump officials should especially cool the outrage meter, as it just looks silly. https://t.co/HFjH01lXgH

Bring in the “fact” checkers. It was “a typical gaffe”, “a verbal stumble”
