Does anyone know of any scrupulous analysis of the accuracy and impartiality of factcheck.org?
Granted, there’s a veneer of impartiality, but I’ve seen several “facts” there debunked elsewhere, such as in the New York Times. And personally speaking, I’ve found several other examples of where factcheck.org contradicts more authoritative sources, such as real encyclopedias (not Wikipedia) and reference books.
Factcheck.org is just one particular newspaper’s evaluation of things, right? It’s not an independent collection of experts or anything, also right? So on what basis should they be considered objective and reliable?
There are many entries that don’t jibe with other reliable sources, (just one example being Snopes.com). And if you do a Google search for factcheck.org, you find one whole hell of a lot more links there from conservative and Republican pages than any other political persuasion! I can’t help doubting that that would be the case if they were truly impartial and accurate.
But let me repeat my objective “General Question” rather than to start a debate: Does anyone know of any scrupulous analysis of the accuracy and impartiality of factcheck.org?
