    And your Fact Check

    This is a really long one...go read it for yourself:

    WASHINGTON (AP) ó It was a week of bewilderment over what President Donald Trump really thinks about Russian interference in the U.S. election and what he and Russiaís Vladimir Putin told each other in their private meeting. The confusion was fed by Trumpís vacillating statements about the summit.

    On other fronts, Trump inaccurately claimed Queen Elizabeth II bestowed upon him an honor that she had never before granted during her reign and, when the president was back in the U.S., he gave a faulty account of improvements in health care for veterans.

    See, this is the problem: They've overreacted and cried wolf so much that now we would rather clip our toenails than read their bloggings.

    CNN and MSNBC have even ceased being entertaining.

    You can only laugh at the hysteria for so long before it gets boring.

    They're losing over minutiae - and he barreling through with the bigger stuff.

    Which is fine with me. Let them spin their wheels over stupid useless stuff.

    Stuff like that, really, most people have had enough.
    ďIt is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

    The Associated Press was the standard for accuracy and information in the 50's and 60's. They try to fall back on that glory now by claiming to be THE standard for fact checking. Unfortunately, the AP is the standard for bias and inaccuracy. It's too bad because the left (and the unknowing) rely on SNOPES and POLITIFACT for "standads."
    Saying we are a country of "Immigrants" is an insult to our ancestors.

    That, and presenting opinion as "fact". Example:

    TRUMP: Says he thought the summit in Helsinki was a great success.
    THE FACTS: We disagree.

    Their "facts" are not facts at all. Every one of them is either their opinion or the opinion of someone else. As in, not facts.

    I find most of these leftwing "fact checkers" confuse opinion with fact, and they nitpick a point until it complies with what they want their audience to think.
