The Washington Post has consistently embarrassed themselves over the past four years with the quote, fact checking, of Donald Trump. The lows they reached were pretty despicable.

But, CNN may have surpassed them with this fact check of Tim Scott. CNN opens the article with this statement:

Scott’s nearly 15-minute rebuttal to Biden’s hour-long speech was largely accurate, but some of his claims could have benefited from additional context.

They couldn’t just say our fact check revealed his speech ‘was largely accurate‘. Instead, they had to add political spin under the heading of ‘context‘.  CNN, WaPo and the others did the same thing to Donald Trump’s statements using political ‘context‘.

Yet, when they fact check Biden, WaPo offers this politically motivated cover line, After four years of a presidency that swamped Americans with a gusher of false and misleading claims, the Joe Biden era has offered a return to a more typical pattern when it comes to a commander in chief and his relationship with the facts — one that features frequent spin and obfuscation or exaggeration, with the occasional canard.

Add to that,no condemnation for Dems/Progressives who attack Sen. Scott with racist taunts. I thought critical race theory made that a criminal offense?

You literally cannot take the media seriously!
