If you wanted to use a devious method to deceive people who are trying to differentiate between truth and lies on the Internet how would you do it? If you were extremely devious and had no conscience, you might set up a Web site with some official and unbiased sounding name that claims to be the encyclopedia of truth to be used as a tool for anyone who has the same biased view and wants to make believe to “back it up” with what they would like you to think is “indisputable fact.”
That is exactly what Web sites like factcheck.org are. They are biased, politically motivated propaganda Web sites, manned and funded by biased political organizations who set up the sites for the sole purpose of deviously “backing up” the political arguments of those who hold the same views that they do. It’s kind of like you have a friend who is in on your lie, and you use him to back up your story and don’t tell anyone else he is your friend.
Just because they use a name that implies unbiased assessments, doesn’t mean that they provide them. You can call your Web site anything you want. I can set up a web site called thetruth.org or realfacts.com or stopthelies.org and post any kind of biased political propaganda I want on it. The name means nothing. And in the case of sites like factcheck.org, the name is intentionally misleading and deceptive. But it isn’t the only so called “fact check” site that is a fraud. There are others.
Think about it. Would you rely on any particular Web site to get the “truth?” Anyone honest would tell you that you should NOT rely solely on them to get your facts. You should get them by considering many different and sources, with different points of view and opinions and arrive at what you believe to be the truth by using your own God given senses. Only con artists purport to be the de facto source of truth.
If you look behind the scenes at these phony “fact check” sites, you find that they are funded by organizations with political biases. You must always ask yourself. Who is writing about this so-called “truth.” Who funds the site and pays their expenses. What are the origins and history of the funders and who are they associated with. In the case of factcheck.org they receive their funding from the liberal Annenberg Foundation.
The Annenberg Foundation was originally founded by Walter J. Annenberg, a conservative who supported Ronald Reagan. However, when Walter Annenberg died, his family took over the management of the foundation and it took a turn to the far left and has ties to radical left individuals such as Bill Ayers and his friend and fellow left wing radical collegue Barack Obama. How is factcheck.org associated with these people:
And by the way, you can find confirmation of the above from many different sources. This is just one. The left leaning bias of the Annenberg foundation has been well established and recognized for many years.
Don’t believe ANYONE who tells you they have the “facts,” and that you shouldn’t listen to anyone else. Honest people encourage you to listen to many points of view and decide for yourself. They don’t try to prevent you from hearing other points of view. That’s the kind of thing that happens in totalitarian societies. A dictator tells you not to listen to anything except the state sponsored sources of information. Only one version of “the truth” is allowed, the dictators “truth.” They try to shut off access to anything except the propaganda sources controlled by the dictator and soon the false “truth” is the only “truth” that anyone can hear.
Always consult different sources and make your own decisions. Only a con man tries to get you to ignore other sources and only listen to what they have to say. Don’t allow these devious people to shut off your mind and fill it with their one sided propaganda. Don’t allow them to prevent you from listening to other people’s versions of the truth. Anyone who tries to do that is a fake. And most importantly, don’t take what any so called “fact check” Web site has to say as “truth.” When you drill down to the who actually owns this type of site, you will invariably find connections to the political left. Creating these sites is a tactic the political left likes to use to fool people with gullible minds. Don’t be gullible. Consult many sources, with differing points of view, and make up your own mind. Anyone who encourages you not to do that or to rely solely on a so called “fact check” site is a fraud.
