CNN “fact checker” Daniel Dale contacted Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Office for a comment on a tweet interpreted as the Congresswoman blaming Joe Biden for the death of two young men due to fentanyl poisoning.
Republicans generally have little regard for so-called “fact checkers,” much in the same way they have trust in the mainstream media, as the CNN fact-checker was about to find this out from the office of Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Dale contacted Nick Dyer, a spokesman for Greene, asking him about her claims; and the response was brutal (language warning):
Dale then followed up and asked Dyer about some other claims Greene allegedly made; the response was much shorter and more to the point.
If you watch the video in the first tweet, you can see that Greene never explicitly stated that the young men died under the Biden administration. Greene merely said “our government” should be doing more to seal the southern border.
“Fact-checkers” like Dale should not be too surprised when they are treated like shills for the establishment media, especially when contacting a Republican elected official and/or their staffers to get answers on something they pretty much made up.
We all know the desperate lengths “fact checkers” go to to protect Democrats.
They are not on our side.
For example, look at this insane comment Dale wrote in response to the then-Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden’s appearance at a Democrat-friendly “town hall” in September 2020:
Here is how Dale characterized Biden’s falsehoods versus Trump after the October 22, 2020, presidential debate.
“Biden was again imperfect from a fact-checking perspective. He made at least a few false, misleading, or lacking-in-context claims. Trump was, as usual, a serial liar.”
And five months into Joe Biden’s presidency, Dale proclaimed, “This president says some inaccurate stuff. Not ideal. But there’s no pretending this era is remotely similar to the last president’s staggering daily avalanche of extreme wrongness.”
Fact checkers are nothing more than Democrat apologists.
