Left-wing Politifact to Target Pundits, Media Figures
Though PolitiFact has frequently discredited itself with numerous dishonest "fact" checks, and outright laughable ones that are almost always designed to shut down conservative criticism of a Democrat or left-wing policy, over the years the outlet has become increasingly useful to the mainstream media.
Citing the left-wing outlet as an objective fact-checker, the media then give themselves license to dismiss Republican lines of attack and even go a step further by using the phony fact-check to undermine the GOP's credibility.
Obviously, by expanding its targeting of conservatives to include talking heads and media figures, the media will have even more weapons at its disposal with which to attack the GOP.
