Politifact claims to be a non-partisan fact-checker — however, a new study proves they are nothing more than a tool of the left.
During Biden’s first two years in office, PolitiFact has only fact-checked Biden 40 times.
Meanwhile, they have fact-checked claims made against Biden 230 times.
NEW Study at NewsBusters: Politifact was almost six times as likely to defend Joe Biden than fact check his lies. https://t.co/wial0wAmsX

At the top of their home page, PolitiFact begs for donations by proclaiming “Our only agenda is to publish the truth so you can be an informed participant in democracy.” But this “independent fact-checker” routinely betrays a tilt by coming out more aggressively to “correct” rhetorical or factual attacks on Democrats.
At the end of Biden’s first 100 days, we reported our study of PolitiFact found they published 13 fact checks of the president, and 106 fact checks of the president’s critics. In other words, they’re much more sensitive about someone “lying” about Biden than they are about Biden lying.
Now, after reviewing Biden’s first year, a NewsBusters study shows the same pattern continues. Overall from January 20, 2021 through January 19, 2022, MRC analysts found Biden was fact-checked 40 times, while Biden critics were checked on 230 occasions.
