WaPo refuses to call out Biden’s lie, fact checker writes that he ‘described his stance inaccurately’

The Jeff Bezos propaganda organ that formerly was a leading national newspaper has decided to toss all vestiges of its credibility into a bonfire of Trump derangement, using Orwellian language to cover for Joe Biden, its best hope to defeat the Orange Menace in November. The level of weaseling involved is so obvious that only truly deranged Trump-haters could have thought it wise to publish such claptrap. To top off the harm it is doing to its credibility, the newspaper employed its trademark “Pinocchio’ system to award Biden “zero Pinocchios” for an obviously false statement that ws uttered purely for political advantage.

The Free Beacon, which was putatively fact-checked by Wapo writer Salvador Rizzo,  has the best coverage, so I quote it, but read the whole thing:

Washington Post fact-checker ruled Thursday that Joe Biden hadn’t lied when he said he supported a fracking ban during Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate. Rather, Biden had simply “described his fracking stance inaccurately.”

The Post gave Biden “Zero Pinocchios” for saying during the most recent Democratic debate that he opposed fracking entirely. Instead, the paper pointed to the Biden campaign’s explanation that the candidate had “misspoken” and that “his position was the same as ever,” opposing fracking only on public lands.
