Facebook Fact-Checker Accused of Pushing ‘Half-Truths’ about Elections

NewsBusters -

Facebook’s latest faulty “fact check” shows how little regard the company has for facts or experts.  Facebook added a USA Today “fact check” to a post of a Just Facts study that investigated non-citizens voting in battleground states. The USA Today “fact check” piece was written by Fact Check Reporter Chelsey Cox and was anything but factual, according to a rebuttal that Just Facts president and cofounder James Agresti wrote. Cox previously “fact checked” a Babylon Bee piece for USA Today, who has also “fact checked” other Babylon Bee pieces as well. Just Facts, according to its web site, is a “non-profit institute dedicated to publishing comprehensive, straightforward, and rigorously documented facts about public policy issues.” The organization’s rigorously sourced study explained: “A wealth of facts show that there are ample openings for non-citizens to illegally vote and that roughly 16% of them voted in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.” The study concluded that if this trend held up in 2020, Biden may have gained enough “fraudulent votes” to beat Trump. In his rebuttal, Agresti explained that the USA Today piece “contains 10 misrepresentations, unsupported claims, half-truths, and outright falsehoods.” Cox even corrected one falsehood after publication. The “fact check” initially asserted that one of the PhD scholars who vetted the Just Facts study had misstated his credentials. The change to erase the false claim was made without issuing a correction and with no trail, violating journalistic ethics, according to Agresti. He also noted that the “fact check” admits that “USA Today’s ‘fact check work is supported in part by a grant from Facebook.’” Agresti’s rebuttal covered several attempts that Cox made to smear the credentials of the scholars who reviewed the Just Facts study, as well as attempts to denigrate Just Facts’ review of evidence.  Agresti concluded that Cox ignored and omitted facts in her attempt to support her own claims. Regarding Cox’s claim that “few noncitizens register to vote in federal elections,” Agresti noted: “She merely declares this to be a fact based on the allegations of two progressives—who she selects.” He called the “fact check” “defamatory,” and characterized one particular point as “propagandizing” instead of fact-checking. Ultimately, Agresti accused Cox’s work of “denigrat[ing] a rigorously documented study as ‘unfounded.’”  This abject failure of a Facebook “fact check” is not an isolated incident. A Facebook fact-check was applied to an MRCTV video that actually agreed with the misinformation claim in the fact-check. Earlier in 2020, Facebook used Health Feedback’s fact-checkers to attack an opinion piece published by the New York Post. The Post piece stated an opinion about how COVID-19 might have originated. Health Feedback called it “false.” Facebook later retracted this “fact check” once new evidence was uncovered that supported the author’s opinion piece, but it did so without ever issuing a correction or noting its error.  Conservatives are under attack. Contact Facebook's leadership by calling Facebook headquarters at 1-650-308- 7300 or 1-650-543-4800 and demand that Facebook not permit anti-conservative censorship on its platform.

Candace Owens Challenges Facebook Fact-Checker And Wins

NewsBusters -

Conservative commentator Candace Owens fought back against Facebook’s left-wing fact-checker PolitiFact and won. The fact-checker retracted a “false” rating it gave to a video posted by Owens on Nov. 12, and issued a correction admitting fault. “Weeks ago, @Facebook censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that @JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect,” Owens tweeted. “So I got lawyers involved. Conclusion? @PolitiFact uncensored the post & admitted that they LIED by rating my post false. The fact-checkers are lying for Democrats.” Owens’s video was captioned “Joe Biden is literally and legally not the President-elect. So why is the media pretending he is?” It discussed the public’s blind acceptance of the media’s declaration of an election winner versus the legal procedure required for victory to be called. “For whatever reason, we have a bunch of people in America who actually believe that a Fox News or a CNN projection is a fact,” Owens said in her video posted to social media. “They don’t understand that this is a projection and that the states have to actually certify the results.” “This information cannot be fact-checked, because that is the truth,” Owens noted earlier in the video. “It is a fact.” Nonetheless, the video was given a “false” rating, which automatically diminished the post’s visibility per Facebook’s fact-checking policy. Owens also noted that, theoretically, every single person who shared the post was alerted they had shared false information, according to The Daily Wire. Owens told The Daily Wire that she initially reached out to PolitiFact through her legal representation. A response from one of PolitiFact’s lawyers indicated the video was given a “false” rating “in error” and its label had been removed, according to Owens. “[W]e still don’t know how or why the post was labeled ‘false’,” continued the lawyer’s response. “We are investigating and hope to share more information with you formally on Monday.” PolitiFact eventually issued the following correction: “Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for Facebook. On Nov. 20, an appeal to that decision was made on behalf of Ms. Owens. PolitiFact approved the appeal on Nov. 20, determined that a correction was appropriate, and removed the false rating.” Not long before Owens posted her video, the conservative personality made an announcement that she would be suing Facebook fact-checkers Lead Stories and USA Today for violating American’s free speech rights. Facebook’s fact-checkers are all part of the liberal Poynter Institute's International Fact Checking Network (IFCN), which received $1.3 million from liberal billionaires George Soros and Pierre Omidyar. Facebook’s program has 10 U.S.-based fact-checkers. With the exception of Check Your Fact, eight of these organizations defend the left. One other is a NeverTrump publication. Lead Stories, which performs 76 percent of the fact-checks on Facebook, is run by eight former CNN alumni, while USA Today has reportedly used college interns to help with its fact-checking. Conservatives are under attack. Contact Facebook via phone at (650) 308-7300 or (650) 543-4800, or by mail to 1601 Willow Road Menlo Park, CA 94025, and demand that the platform provide transparency: Companies need to design open systems so that they can be held accountable, while giving weight to privacy concerns.

PolitiFact's Shameless 'Half True': Loeffler Is 'For Getting Rid of Health Care' in a Pandemic

NewsBusters -

Bryan White at the website PolitiFact Bias points out that the "fact checkers" are tilting in favor of both Democrats running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia runoffs. We noted Politifact cried "PANTS ON FIRE" when Sen. David Perdue dared to call his opponent Jon Ossoff a "socialist," but somehow it's "Half True" for Democrat Raphael Warnock to suggest Sen. Kelly Loeffler is for "getting rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic." The contrast here is more stunning because Tom Kertscher wrote both of these articles. In his ad, Rev. Warnock mocked Loeffler's attack ads by saying "Get ready, Georgia, the negative ads are coming! Kelly Loeffler doesn't want to talk about why she's for getting rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic, so she's gonna try and scare you with lies about me." (HuffPost called this an "adorable spoof.")  Get ready Georgia. The negative ads against us are coming. But that won’t stop us from fighting for a better future for Georgians and focusing on the issues that matter. pic.twitter.com/VN0YIA02MG — Reverend Raphael Warnock (@ReverendWarnock) November 5, 2020 It's pretty shameless to imply "the negative ads are coming! And my inhumane monster of an opponent wants to take away your health care!" By the  extremely literal logic that PolitiFact often applies to the GOP, it could be interpreted that "getting rid of health care" means "closing all the hospitals and forbidding doctors to work." This kind of wild, cartoonish language is standard Democrat rhetoric -- like "Paul Ryan shoves lady off cliff" --  but it typically gets a full (or in this case, half) pass.  (Psst: PolitiFact's Louis Jacobson ruled that mudslinging 2011 ad -- described as "cutting through the clutter quite dramatically" -- was "Mostly True"!)  Notice any objection to Obamacare is cast as "against health care." Just because liberals don't want it overturned doesn't equate to "getting rid of health care."  As White explained, "Obamacare counts as an insurance program, not a health care program. Getting rid of Obamacare gets rid of some insurance coverage. It does not get rid of health care." White also noted that overturning Obamacare is not "getting rid of health care," but leads to a new round of legislation -- and you can be skeptical it will still be "in the middle of a pandemic" by the time all the court action is finished. Kertscher concluded his Warnock ad check by proclaiming:  Warnock said Loeffler is "for getting rid of health care in the middle of a pandemic." That’s an overly broad statement that could be interpreted any number of ways.  The facts are that Loeffler voted to let the Trump administration continue supporting a lawsuit that seeks to overturn the Affordable Care Act. Millions of people could lose health care if the Supreme Court throws out the law. Loeffler supports offering health care alternatives, but critics say they are not as good as Obamacare’s provisions. Warnock’s statement is partially accurate but leaves out important details. Our rating is Half True. Notice PolitiFact always says applies anonymous "critics" to "check" Republicans, or they cite academic experts without noting the leftist tilt of most academic experts. (Just see the Ossoff/socialist blog for examples.) In this 2020 campaign these Georgia candidates have two PolitiFact checks: Loeffler has two Mostly False ratings, and Warnock has two "Half Trues." Bryan White lets them have it:  Warnock's ad is a logic-free misleading appeal to emotion. She wants to take health care away from people who are dying! As political ads go, it's about as low as they come. PolitiFact's "Half True" rating of Warnock's misleading bull hockey serves as just another illustration of PolitiFact's marked leftward lean. It's such a wildly generous "Half True" that it counts as a rubberstamp.

Is Exxon's Dividend Too High To Justify?

OilPrice -

The energy sector has emerged as the best performer over the past few weeks, with WTI crude prices climbing to their highest level in nearly eight months thanks to a flurry of potential Covid-19 vaccines.  Optimism has returned to the oil markets in a big way. Even conservative BP Plc (NYSE:BP) has backtracked on its earlier projections that we might have passed peak oil, with the company now saying oil demand might not peak till around 2030. Yet, Big Oil is still far from being out of the woods, with big dividend payers, in particular, remaining…

Powerful TV Democrat to Powerful TV Democrat: Now It's Time to Unify!

NewsBusters -

It’s time for America to stop being so divided by partisan politics and unify. That’s the hypocritical message of CBS host Gayle King, a Democratic donor, and host Ellen DeGeneres, also a Democratic donor. King appeared on the talk show star’s program to call for a coming together, now that Joe Biden has won. King cheered fellow Biden for “saying all the right things.”  DeGeneres, who contributed to the partisan divide when the host declared she would never have the “dangerous” Trump on her show, lamented the fractured nature of America: “I understand, there's a lot of angry people. There's a lot of sad people. But we are all in this, you know, this boat together, we really need to find a way.”  King, who exclusively donated to Democrat, echoed this sentiment: “Speak to each other. I'm with you, when you always say kindness —  it's one of my favorite words —  I know you feel the same. We have to get back to beating each other, we really do.”      She then praised Biden for “saying all the right things.”  And to his credit, President-Elect Biden is saying all of the right things. He said, “Look, I know a lot of people didn't vote for me, but I am your president and I want us all to be united.” I think that is a good way to start.  The partisan hypocrisy on the Ellen show was sponsored by Honda. Click on the link to let them know what you think.  A partial transcript is below. Click "expand" to read more.  Ellen 11/30/2020 ELLEN DEGENERES: Let me ask you what is going on in the country. You're covered a lot of elections. This one —  this, I mean, you are up for days and days, right? This was a tough one for a lot of journalists.  GAYLE KING: It was tough because, you know, I just think we are all exhausted by it all, honestly. We've got COVID. We had politics, we've had racial unrest, it's like three things that I could easily bring you to your knees. It has been a big bowl of ugly, but the political season, we all wanted it to just be done one way or the other. We are sort of still living through it, the president only last week agreed to the transition of power, so the decision has been made. Let's move on. But the thing is, the country is so divided, Ellen. I'm actually scared about it, to be honest with you. It's a very — we are so mean and so nasty, so hair trigger with each other, and I'm trying to figure out a way for all of us to tone it down a little bit, tone it down. Speak to each other. I'm with you, when you always say kindness —  it's one of my favorite words, I know you feel the same. We have to get back to beating each other, we really do. [Applause] And to his credit, President-Elect Biden is saying all of the right things. He said, “Look, I know a lot of people didn't vote for me, but I am your president and I want us all to be united.” I think that is a good way to start. I’ll take that. I’ll take that.   DEGENERES: That's the only thing any president, any leader should be doing. They are leading the country, it is not one group of people. I'm with you, as far as the division that we have going on here, and there is a lot of anger, which is —  I understand, there's a lot of angry people. There's a lot of sad people. But we are all in this, you know, this boat together, we really need to find a way. I agree with you. What keeps you. What do you —  you know, especially with the division with social unrest, what is the positive message that you can give, or are getting?  KING: I believe that we are more alike than we are different, I honestly do believe that. We all want to love. We all want to be loved, we want to have good jobs, we want to have friends and family who care about us. So I think, with that, we are united. And I also think that we are more good than we are not. I do. I believe the core of us wants to do the right thing, so I remain optimistic and I remain hopeful about that.  DEGENERES: Me too. Me too.  KING: Ellen, I know you feel this, and I don't mean to sound Pollyanna, wearing rose-colored glasses, my favorite color is yellow, sunshine and butter, all good things. You know, let's never forget that the power of the people is greater than the people in power. We, the people is really us. We can control this. We can do this. That's what keeps me going. 

Liberal Media Panicking Over Conservative Exodus to Parler

NewsBusters -

Just build your own platform, but wait, not like that! Liberal media and commentators condemn conservatives for abandoning censorious Big Tech platforms for Parler. Conservatives launched an exodus to free speech platform Parler after Twitter’s latest wave of censorship during the Fall 2020 election. Now the liberal media are doing everything they can to condemn Parler and its new community amid its meteoric rise. The Atlantic lamented that Parler hosts a “frenzied” level of “conspiracy-mongering” amid a contested election. Yahoo News slammed the new social media platform. In a headline the outlet alleged that Parler is “bringing together mainstream conservatives, anti-Semites and white supremacists.”  Yahoo News, however, explained why liberals truly fear Parler. Unlike other platforms, mainstream conservatives appear to have given Parler their blessing: “Parler, in contrast, gained a reputation for catering to mainstream conservatives thanks to a handful of high-profile early adopters like Brad Parscale, Candace Owens and Sen. Mike Lee. As a result, in 2020 when Twitter began labeling misleading Trump tweets about possible fraud in absentee and mail-in voting, politicians like Ted Cruz embraced Parler as the next bastion for conservative speech.” While Parler is thus far not as large as the censorious Big Tech establishment platforms, its rise to popularity has accelerated as censorship has grown worse on other platforms. Parler “was the most downloaded app on both Android and Apple devices,” The Wall Street Journal reported Nov. 15.  Yahoo News Yahoo News described Parler as the ultimate radicalization nightmare scenario for the conservative movement. Yahoo News accused Parler of “bringing together mainstream conservatives, anti-Semites and white supremacists as the social media platform attracts millions of Trump supporters.” Extremism expert and Middlebury Institute Research Lead, Alex Newhouse panicked that Parler “has become a haven for far-right extremists and conspiracy theorists who are now interacting with the mainstream conservatives flocking to the platform.” The Atlantic The Atlantic lamented that Parler has become a platform where “conspiracy-mongering has grown only more frenzied as Trump makes state-by-state fraud allegations.” Amid a contested election, The Atlantic expressed its disgust that users can voice their concerns over “rumors of CIA supercomputers with secret programs to change votes, allegations of massive numbers of dead people voting, claims of backdated ballots, and assorted other speculations that users attempt to coalesce into a grand unified theory of election theft.” The Washington Post The Washington Post mocked conservatives for using Parler while still relying on anti-conservative Big Tech platforms to reach their audiences in a Nov. 23 piece. The Post quoted Data & Society researcher Robyn Caplan’s concerns that “people are putting themselves back into these private spaces, making them more circular in their logic and strengthening that internal division.”  The New York Times New York Times columnist Andrew Sorkin hosted a Nov. 17 discussion at The New York Times’ virtual DealBook Summit, which included a discussion with Microsoft founder and CEO Bill Gates and others that touched on issues related to vaccine confidence. “So you’re not taking a mainstream thing that's part of how a family stays in touch, and is used for a variety of things. You’re literally going over to, ‘Hey, what’s the craziest thing that anybodies saying?’” Gates said in the interview. “If you want Holocaust denial, hey Parler’s going to be great for you.” CNN UNC Chapel Hill Political ads lead researcher Bridget Barrett seemed disgusted by the fact conservatives have any safe-haven online to share their ideas. She joined CNN in an interview Nov. 15 and suggested that Parler would enable “the spread of hate, of false information” and allow for “terrorists, both foreign and domestic to recruit or plan.” Barrett also warned that Parler could cause “harms” to “our democracy” itself because “people are going to believe that an election was unfair or illegitimate.” Conservatives are under attack.

FALSE: Nets Tout Biden Hiring ‘First, All-Female’ WH Comms Team (Trump Already Does)

NewsBusters -

Between late Sunday and Monday morning, the liberal media showcased their latest double standard between Democratic and Republican administrations and a failure to grasp reality. This time, outlets hailed President-Elect Joe Biden’s hiring of the “first” all-female White House communications team that’s “breaking barriers” despite the fact that the Trump administration’s top communications officials are all women. Currently, women hold the positions of White House communications director (Alyssa Farah), deputy White House communications director (Roma Daravi), deputy White House press secretary (Sarah Matthews), press secretary for the First Lady (Stephanie Grisham), press secretary for the Second Lady (Kara Brooks), vice presidential communications director (Katie Miller), and White House press secretary (Kayleigh McEnany).     But Orange Man Bad, so it didn’t happen in the eyes of the liberal media charlatans. Nonetheless, ABC, CBS, and NBC couldn’t be bothered to denote that on Monday morning’s newscasts, instead fixating on the team that included another case of the revolving door with Jen Psaki leaving CNN for the White House. ABC’s Good Morning America co-host and former Clinton flack George Stephanopoulos bragged to senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega that Biden was “breaking a new barrier by announcing an all female White House communication team.”  For her part, Vega concurred by gushing over Biden “trying to make good on his campaign promise to diversify the White House with that first, all female communication team.” CBS correspondent Nikole Killion was similarly enthused, leaving CBS This Morning co-host and Obama/Biden donor Gayle King to remind us of why the ethically-challenged hack has no business being seen as a real journalist (click “expand”): KILLION: Mr. Biden also announced his new White House communications team. It is a diverse, all-female group, including several mothers of young kids, according to newly named Press Secretary Jen Psaki who’s an Obama alum. Kate Bedingfield tapped for White House communications following a similar role in the campaign. This week, the President-Elect is rolling out his economic team, two sources familiar with the process confirm he is expected to nominate Janet Yellen for Treasury secretary, the first woman in history to lead the department. CBS News has also learned he's expected to nominate Cecilia Rouse to chair the Council of Economic Advisers and Neera Tanden, White House budget director, both would be first women of color to serve in those roles if confirmed. Gayle?  KING: That’s an amazing picture when you look at it all together. On NBC’s Today, correspondent Geoff Bennett continued to build a resume of sycophancy for his friends on Team Biden, proclaiming Biden made “history-making hires” as “[f]or the first time, all of the senior staffers tasked with shaping White House messaging with be women.”  In the 8:00 a.m. Eastern hour, co-host Savannah Guthrie reiterated this news during a brief: Earlier over the weekend, Biden announced that he has selected his communication team for his administration, all female and it’ll be headed by Kate Bedingfield, who was communications director for his campaign. Biden is also set to formally reveal his economic team tomorrow. These three networks weren’t alone as flacks from the Associated Press, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the taxpayer-funded NPR and PBS also willfully shared this lie far and wide. Not everyone willfully ignored this falsehood, but instead of correcting the record or offering fact-checks, many of these same actors chose to explain why this narrative wasn’t a lie and instead fully accurate. Here was the spin from America’s hall monitor, CNN’s Reliable Sources host, and Zuckerville resident Brian Stelter (click “expand”): WaPo's Annie Linskey broke the news on Sunday afternoon: "Biden hires all-female senior communications team." Jen Psaki will be press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre will be the principal deputy press secretary, Kate Bedingfield will be WH director, Pili Tobar will be her deputy, Symone Sanders will be the chief spokesperson for Kamala Harris, and Ashley Etienne will be comms director for Harris. Elizabeth Alexander will be first lady Jill Biden's comms director. Linskey wrote, "It is the first time all of the top aides tasked with speaking on behalf of an administration and shaping its message will be female." This triggered a round of media bias complaints from the Trump WH and its allies, who asserted that the current WH comms team is "entirely female-led." WH deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews wrote, "Apparently the achievements of GOP women don't count in the eyes of the media." They should count, and they do, but the clear difference here is that Biden is jump-starting his WH with an all-female team and making a statement about diversity – that's why the appointments garnered headlines on Sunday. Furthermore, as Maggie Haberman noted, some of Trump's top comms aides are men... Ah, so Biden “is jump-starting his WH with an all-female team and making a statement about diversity?” Unfortunately, Stelter’s incapable of feeling shame, so he won’t cop to this narrative being a case of jiggery pokery. Monday’s lies were made possible by advertisers such as Cadillac (on NBC), Facebook (on CBS), and Walgreens (on ABC). Follow the links to the MRC’s Conservatives Fight Back page.
