You cannot trust Politifact, Snopes, or just about any other “fact-checking” organization. Why? Because none of them are truly non-partisan, all of them have bias and those biases always filter down to their analysis. You have to be your own “fact-checker” on everything these days.
However, the fact-checkers at Politifact (and Snopes) are particularly untrustworthy because they are (and analysis has shown) nakedly partisan. The fact checkers at these organizations are dyed-in-the-wool liberals and their “fact-checks” almost always bear this out.
Thankfully, we can prove their partisanship fairly easily thanks to the Internet. See here, where analysis shows that Politifact says Democrats are mostly honest and Republicans are mostly liars. Or see here, where U.S. News and World Reports analyzes a study that shows Politifact is biased against Republicans.
Or you can see this story from the Daily Wire where John Nolte proves that you can’t trust Politifact.
There is a bunch more lies, but I just ran out of Internet…
