The Death of the Media, Cont.

The WaPo FactChecker introduced a new metric: the Bottomless Pinocchio.


Oh, wait.

The Bottomless Pinocchio “will be awarded to politicians who repeat a false claim so many times that they are, in effect, engaging in campaigns of disinformation,” which seems like a long-winded way of saying that the politician is named “Donald Trump.”

But at least they went out of their way to avoid saying that Trump “lies” or is a “liar.”

Decorum, don’t you know? But if the Fact Checker cannot or will not say that a person lies or is a liar, then what good are they?

    Sorry to go off topic here, (not), but does anyone know if Gen. Flynn likes both mayo AND mustard on his ham sammich? On Rye? (Asking for a friend.)
