Facts are facts. They can be spun to suit a particular story at times, yet if you do a fact check on them, using a reputable fact checker, you’ll find that they are what they are, irrefutable and unimpeachable facts. Except at BuzzFeed. Then facts are malleable, or in this case, they were manufactured.
Now if you use fact-checkers such as PolitiFact, Snopes, Google, FactCheck.org, NYT, WaPo, or the Weekly Standard, facts are “fluid”, ever changing to fit the narrative of the day. You may get skewed results due to them being partisan, left-leaning fact checkers.
These sites also inject opinion into their fact-checking results to further obfuscate the fact that they are muddying the waters so you don’t get a clear picture of what you wanted to know.
If these checkers have a chance to denigrate Trump, Conservatives, whites, etc., they’ll do it every time. And conversely, if they have a chance to elevate Socialism, Progressives, trannies, gays, abortion, illegals, MS-13 or other criminals, they’ll do it every time.
There is a disconnect from reality with these fact-checking sites. They are hell-bent on defeating and denigrating Trump and Conservatism at any cost, even forsaking their own “journalistic integrity” as it were.
BuzzFeed put out and hyped a story yesterday that has since gone viral for good and bad reasons. BuzzFeed, using two (2) unattributed and anonymous “Federal law enforcement” sources, put out a salacious story with the headline:
President Trump Directed His Attorney Michael Cohen To Lie To Congress About the Moscow Tower Project
The story continued that Trump had 10 personal updates from Cohen and that Trump encouraged Cohen to meet with Putin. The story goes into great detail about the back and forth with Trump and his lawyer and Trump exhorting Cohen to meet with Putin to “make it happen”.
But then those pesky things called “facts” emerged to rain on BuzzFeed’s parade. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office issued an extraordinary statement that disputes BuzzFeed’s “bombshell” report.
“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said.
The statement from Mueller’s office is astounding as he is actually taking the President’s side, for possibly the first time in his adult life.
So even though Mueller himself says the BuzzFeed story is B.S., BuzzFeed doubled down and demanded Mueller tell them exactly what was erroneous with their report.
Buzzfeed’s Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith tweeted after the release of the statement Friday: “In response to the statement tonight from the Special Counsel’s spokesman: We stand by our reporting and the sources who informed it, and we urge the Special Counsel to make clear what he’s disputing.”
While the mainstream Leftist media went full bore “impeach Trump” from BuzzFeed’s “bombshell report”, they totally ignored the FACT that Robert Mueller disputes BuzzFeed’s report within short order. And today they are still calling for Trump’s impeachment, even though the BuzzFeed story is total garbage.
To refresh everyone’s memory, BuzzFeed is the stellar news organization that released the salacious and totally discredited “Trump Dossier” which had been paid for by Hillary Clinton and the
This dossier, which has zero proven details, is what the entire fake Russian collusion investigation is based on. This is the document that the FBI took to FISA court judges and told them it was verifiable material and that Trump was colluding with Putin to deny Hillary the Presidency.
Within hours after the “bombshell” report was released by BuzzFeed, the Socialists of America wasted no time in getting in front of the cameras with their latest “impeach Trump” rantings:
Adam Schiff (D-CA) said “The allegation that the president of the United States may have suborned perjury before our committee in an effort to curtail the investigation and cover up his business dealings with Russia is among the most serious to date,” Schiff said in a statement. He probably knew it was false and didn’t care. This guy lies so much he can’t keep his stories straight anyway, so for him to tell the truth, it would have to be a mistake.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said the House should begin to “establish a record” of whether Trump “committed high crimes,” repeatedly hinting on Twitter at the potential for impeachment proceedings.
“Based on the Buzzfeed report and numerous other articles showing @realDonaldTrump committed Obstruction of Justice and other possible felonies, it is time for the House Judiciary Committee to start holding hearings to establish a record of whether @POTUS committed high crimes,” Lieu tweeted.
It’s frightening to realize that these Democrats actually take the “news reports” coming from BuzzFeed as actionable intelligence and as factual without verification. They heard it, probably from an aide, and just run with it. They can’t miss an opportunity to get in front of the camera and bash Trump or Conservatives.
So, with just more lies and manufactured material coming out of the BuzzFeed organization, why on God’s green Earth would anyone believe their report on anything?
Fact is, we the people don’t. Only the stupid Socialists fall for that tripe. It goes back to the old saying “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me”.
Democrats should be ashamed, but Socialists have no shame. They have an agenda.
