Bozell Announces ‘Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers’ Project: ‘Americans Deserve the Truth’

The Media Research Center (MRC) has launched a new project: Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers.

As major news outlets increasingly rely on leftist “fact-checkers” to verify the credibility of news, this MRC initiative will vigilantly ensure the fact-checkers themselves are reliable – or, expose them as liberal partisans if they aren’t.

“In an era of ‘fake news’ and inaccurate reporting, it is important now more than ever that the fact-checkers themselves are exposed for their biases,” MRC President Brent Bozell said Tuesday in a statement announcing the project.

Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers will rate the pronouncements of the so-called fact-checkers and call out their liberal dishonesty, Bozell said:

“MRC routinely finds instances when fact-checkers bend the truth or disproportionately target conservatives. We are assigning our own rating to their judgments and will expose the worst offenders.”

According to a 2016 Rasmussen poll, an astonishing 62% of American voters believe fact-checkers are biased. “There must be accountability across the board, and that includes these alleged arbiters of fact and fiction,” Bozell said, declaring:

“Americans deserve the truth.”

Some of the “facts” exposed as “FULLY FAKE” on the Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers website include:
