    I don’t know whether the GOPigs have bought them out, or if they’re just caught in the common media addiction to false “balance” and thus can’t bring themselves to admit that Republicans simply lie a lot more than Democrats. But ultimately, either one is just as bad. Politi”Fact” has rendered itself worthless.

    PolitiFact responds to Rachel Maddow

    Via email, PolitiFact editor and Tampa Bay Times Washington bureau chief Bill Adair responds to the criticism:

    Our goal at PolitiFact is to use the Truth-O-Meter to show the relative accuracy of a political claim. In this case, we rated it Mostly True because we felt that while the number was short of a majority, it was still a plurality. Forty percent of Americans consider themselves conservative, 35 percent moderate and 21 percent liberal. It wasn’t quite a majority, but was close.

    We don’t expect our readers to agree with every ruling we make. We have published nearly 5,000 Truth-O-Meter ratings and it’s natural that anyone can find some they disagree with. But even if you don’t agree with every call we make, our research and analysis helps you sort out what’s true in the political discourse.

    Unfortunately, Adair’s defense serves to prove Maddow’s point and negate his own.

    They need to be called put on not reporting facts, which shouldn’t be hard.
