“This Isn't a Fact-Check. It's Some Democrats With Press Passes Doing Damage Control for the President.”

USA Today "Fact-Checks" Biden Looking at His Watch - by Jim Treacher - Who the Hell Is Jim Treacher? (substack.com)

Uh oh. That sounds pretty disrespectful. Get me a fact-check, USA Today! Stat!


Whew. That’s a relief. I was afraid our dear President was disrespectful to fallen troops.

Oh, wait…

But here’s the thing, though: It’s not misleading at all. That’s exactly what happened. Biden did what he’s accused of doing. It’s true. There’s proof and everything.

This isn’t a fact-check. It’s some Democrats with press passes doing damage control for the president.

Apparently one of the adults at USA Today realized how bad this looks, but only after allowing this garbage to be published. Now the “fact-check” has been “clarified”:

“This story was updated to note that, uh… the thing we claimed to be false was actually true.”

It’s nice that we have “objective” media running interference for the President. I wish Republican Presidents could get this kind of treatment.

No, actually, I don’t. I don’t want Republican Presidents to be treated with kid gloves. I want them treated fairly. And I want Democrat Presidents to be treated the same way Republican ones are.
