Who Fact Checks the Fact Checkers?

According to the logic of an AP fact checker, if you said America fought Japan in World War II, because we spent far more effort fighting the Germans in World War II your statement would only be partly true.

I'm hardly going to defend the Syrian government or call them a reliable ally, but come on!

AP deleted a tweet saying Trump was wrong that Syria's Assad is fighting ISIS. His remark is only partially true. A new tweet is upcoming.

Once again, my nuance deficiency is highlighted, I suppose.

I never consider the verdict of a so-called "fact checker" as the final word on any left-right issue.

They usually try to make the left accurate with all the "context" that is necessary to bring in, while never giving someone on the right (which Trump is considered at the moment by the media, notwithstanding my opinion that Trump is just a Democrat wearing a Republican skin suit after he killed and cleaned the carcass of the party) any benefit of reasonable interpretation.
