The nonpartisan fact checker, PolitiFact, is more likely to “fact check” President Biden than his critics, according to a new study.
PolitiFact conducted 13 fact checks “of Biden” and 106 “about Biden,” the Media Research Center found.
“In other words, they’re much more sensitive about someone “lying” about Biden than they are about Biden lying,” Newsbusters’ Tim Graham said.
Despite this, PolitiFact claims to be nonpartisan.
“The PolitiFact agenda is – don’t take sides with any politician or party,” claimed editor Angie Drobnic Holan. “We’re independent and we work hard to find the truth. So we follow the facts wherever they take us, regardless of who made the claim.”
Comparing coverage of this administration to the last one, Holan’s words don’t hold much weight.
PolitiFact put out 52 fact checks with a “Truth-O-Meter” during former President Trump’s first 100 days in office, while only conducting 13 during Biden’s.
