Even liberal fact-checkers are acknowledging Biden's lies and misinformation

Here is factcheck.org’s list of false information from Biden’s Townhall in Scranton yesterday:

Biden made the far-fetched claim that data show President Donald Trump could have prevented “all” of the U.S. deaths from COVID-19 if he “had done his job.” There’s no research that supports such a claim.
Biden wrongly claimed the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently said “wearing masks would save 100,000” U.S. residents from dying of COVID-19 between now and January. That’s a projection from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, not the CDC director.
The former vice president misleadingly claimed Trump “said that no longer would we … provide masks for schools.” One federal program to pay for masks ended, but another aims to distribute up to 125 million masks for schools.
Biden appears to have exaggerated when he said Trump had been told the coronavirus was “seven times more contagious than the flu.” Trump told journalist Bob Woodward the virus might be five times more lethal than the flu. The coronavirus is about two to three times more contagious.
Biden wrongly claimed that “we now have a larger trade deficit … than we’ve ever had with China.” He would have been right two years ago, but not now.
He claimed that capping orphan oil and gas wells could create 250,000 jobs. We only found support for 120,000 jobs.
Biden falsely claimed that Trump has never condemned the far right and white supremacists.

Biden’s last false claim about condemnation of white supremacists has been his staple narrative for the entire campaign even though a quick look at transcripts or videos would show it is incorrect. It looks like reality is finally starting to seep in.

Are the liberal fact-checkers starting to recognize that ignoring Biden’s whoppers is destroying their credibility?

Will Twitter and Facebook start to flag Biden on his inability to tell the truth?


anyone from Pennsylvania who votes for Biden is a blooming idiot


Or they are from Philadelphia.


and pittsburgh

Yes, although I suspect that a lot of people in Pittsburgh are getting fed up with Biden’s support of Antifa/BLM violence and intimidation.

gawd i hope so

biden and his loud nasty running mate came out hard against fracking which is helping drive PA economy

whoever cant see this in PA is just stupid, or hates prosperity.

on the other points anyone with a hindbrain can see through Biden’s bumbling narrative crap, like over the debunked “fine people” nonsense

I think the Biden campaign has been getting cocky with telling more and more outrageous lies with little or no push back from the mainstream media. Hopefully the dam is starting to break.

Biden makes Trump look like honest Abe by comparison. That was recognized years ago; here is an earlier thread with links to some of Biden’s past tale tales:

Steady there young man. Never speak of my hometown with irreverence or cheap sarcasm. Boys from the ‘Burgh don’t take that kind of cheek lightly. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

haha. i tell ya. it pains me to see allegheny county go so blue all the time, esp since it is next to Westmoreland (my county)

Southwestern Pennsylvania, WVA and SE Ohio energy jobs are sneering at Biden. He openly disparaged the blue collar middle class workers and intent to eliminate fracking. Then when pandering for votes during a personal appearance there he bumbled, fumbled, denied, deflected and blamed Trump for some convoluted Covid conspiracy. With a hearty “C’mon man, Biden is no favorite in Pittsburgh.

Ahh a Greensburg boy, I grew up in the South Hills. Yes Allegheny County goes blue because of the colleges, inner city dwellers and the Squirrel Hill/ Shadyside intellectuals. Go out into the suburbs it’s Trump country. I don’t live there anymore but the fam keeps me up on the local politics. I’m in MD and like PA the rural areas red cities blue. I grew up middle class our parents were Roosevelt Democrats. When I registered to vote (at 21 then) you guessed it Democrat and I voted for McCarthy, he wanted to end the Vietnam War. That party is gone. They’re still pandering to the unions in Pittsburgh, one day they’ll wake up.

He’s telling new lies, old lies, big lies and small lies.

No one is gonna challenge him on it.

Yes, he is a Democrat so truth is irrelevant.

On a less serious lie, Biden said that he was the first person in his family to have a college education. This was not true, as a grandparent and an aunt had a college education. Turns out that he had used that same line in 1988…and had taken it from a speech he ripped off from a British politician.


With Biden it is all about telling a good story. He has repeatedly lied about basic publicly available information.

The fact that he has gotten as far as he proves him right on some level. Democrats do not care about facts unless they happen to fit the narrative.

Biden is claiming that without Trump the United States would have zero Covid deaths. The man is brain dead.
