Friday Feb-11-2022 — Sky News Australia’s Digital Editor Jack Houghton says some fact checkers are “not fit to be Instagram bloggers,” let alone the arbiters of truth.
Mr Houghton referred to a recent “doozy” of a “fact checking gone wrong story” involving a claim relating to a provision in a Biden administration overdose prevention program.
He said “activists” at the fact checking website Snopes were “mercilessly mocked” by Fox News journalists for their handling of a recent fact checking “saga” relating to a story on the issue.
“Thankfully, we have people like journalists at Fox News who mercilessly mocked Snopes for this entire insane saga. “They splashed with ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ and proceeded to fact check the fact checkers.”
NEWS | This is exactly why so many don’t trust the mainstream media and why podcasters, like Joe Rogan, have millions of listeners. Fact-checkers are actually truth-supressors.
