Ever since CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge broke the news about DNI acting director Richard Grenell’s notification to Congress of the declassified “unmasking list”, Democrats and other so-called mainstream media “journalists” have been in a frenzied panic, and have retreated further into Orange Man Bad mode, seeking to cast doubt on news that is very, very damaging to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

Among them is Washington Post “fact checker” Glenn Kessler, who I find is very hit or miss – but mostly miss.

The word “miss” definitely applies to his ridiculous dismissal of the list Grenell released as a nothingburger, even though it was a list that included the names of numerous Obama administration officials, including then-Vice President Biden.

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway took to the Twitter machine yesterday to say “told you so” to all the haters and doubters:


Kessler, in full Protect the Precious mode, had this response:

Conway was not having any of it. She blasted him and turned the tables around on him, demanding he and/or his paper finally get around to fact checking claims by Obama officials including Biden about what they knew and when they knew it, which would be a welcome change to their previous one-sided coverage:

Predictably, Kessler appeared to ignore Conway’s comeback, and instead retweeted liberally biased hot takes from Mother Jones “reporters” like this one …


… while later continuing to downplay the story by promoting other left wing writers and their work at downplaying it:

This, unfortunately, is par for the course the supposedly “objective” fact checker, who frequently retweets left wing sources as factual without questioning/analyzing their claims first.

Serious question: Are there any legitimately objective, non-partisan fact checkers left out there? I sure can’t find any.
