The Media Research Center (MRC) has launched a new project: Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers.
As major news outlets increasingly rely on leftist “fact-checkers” to verify the credibility of news, this MRC initiative will vigilantly ensure the fact-checkers themselves are reliable – or, expose them as liberal partisans if they aren’t.
“In an era of ‘fake news’ and inaccurate reporting, it is important now more than ever that the fact-checkers themselves are exposed for their biases,” MRC President Brent Bozell said Tuesday in a statement announcing the project.
Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers will rate the pronouncements of the so-called fact-checkers and call out their liberal dishonesty, Bozell said:
“MRC routinely finds instances when fact-checkers bend the truth or disproportionately target conservatives. We are assigning our own rating to their judgments and will expose the worst offenders.”
According to a 2016 Rasmussen poll, an astonishing 62% of American voters believe fact-checkers are biased. “There must be accountability across the board, and that includes these alleged arbiters of fact and fiction,” Bozell said, declaring:
“Americans deserve the truth.”
