CNN is a complete disgrace.
Their chief fact-checker has not published a fact-check on Biden in over six weeks.
This is despite them constantly fact-checking Donald Trump.
CNN's chief fact-checker hasn't published a fact-check of President Biden in more than six weeks, and the top stories listed under the "Biden White House" section right now are about Betty White, Republicans, and the media covering Mark Meadows. https://t.co/NvaR3kMEIZ pic.twitter.com/Wle6cg6yNa

CNN’s Daniel Dale didn’t fact-check false statements President Biden made last week in Georgia as he aggressively pushed Democratic voting bills, continuing a trend from the outlet’s chief arbiter of truth.
Other outlets such as the Washington Post, PolitiFact, and The Dispatch noted Biden made several misleading or false statements in his speech in fact-check articles; the Post and PolitiFact specifically labeled his claim to have once been “arrested” during a civil rights protest as false, and PolitiFact and The Dispatch also said Biden’s claim that former President Trump voted by mail in 2020 was too broad, since Trump voted in-person in the general election that year after voting by mail in the primary.
But Dale, who rose to prominence for fact-checking Trump, has had little to say on Biden lately except to tweet out his public daily schedule. He didn’t post an article last week about Biden’s fiery voting speech, where the president lambasted opponents of proposed Democratic voting overhauls as akin to segregationists.
Dale, whom CNN hired away from the Toronto Star in 2019 because of his Trump fact-checking, hasn’t authored a fact-check of Biden since Dec. 5. According to Dale’s online profile, he hit Biden that day for telling an “inaccurate” story about a 1973 meeting with then-Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir.
Since that time, Dale has posted fact-checks on Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate David Perdue, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, the conservative Club for Growth Action PAC, right-wing figures discussing an out-of-context ABC News clip of CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Republican Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.
