I live in the same community with a number of the Politifact journalists. I personally know some of them and they are outstanding humans.
BTW I will directly correspond with journalists if I have questions or concerns about their stories. Their email addresses are usually found with their by-lines or I use Facebook, maybe Twitter. The news comments sections in online publications are so full of trolls-for-hire these days, that's not a viable way to comment or ask questions any more.
I am not enamored with the Washington Post - it tends to pulls the trigger too quickly on stories before all the facts are determined in order to get the scoop.
Those in the news business call it "feeding the beast." An enormous volume of stories are published across the US everyday, there are inaccuracies at times, retractions are made and sometimes journalists lose their jobs for being bad reporters.
Nonetheless, journalists are the first defenders of our republic and speak truth to power. The First Amendment of the US Constitution acknowledges and protects this as a right.
you quote WaPo who has been know to publish lies.
lets get real here and whcih fact checkers do you trust again? the one working out of their basement who are not always correct???
