Colin Kaepernick Kneeling during anthem.

Je suis contre Colin Kaepernick de se mettre à genoux pendant l’hymne nationale de l’États-Unis parce que le drapeau représente la pays et la liberté des religions et liberté de parole. Colin Kaepernick n'a pas respecté le drapeau quand il a refusé de lever pendant l'hymne de nationale des États-Unis. Ça c’est un manque de respecte parce que, le drapeau représente la pays et re...

The refugees are also about ninety percent able bodied men, which is incredibly suspicious. Besides, when the USA had a civil war, our men didn't run away to other countries, they stoo...

Does the website "PolitiFact" have a liberal bias?

ConserativeDemocrat
BWhite

I'm too lazy to write rules. I have seen this multiple times; the website Politifact haas liberal bias. Evidence? They rate more claims by conservatives false then they do liberals. To me, this doesn't show any bias. It just shows more conservatives say false or ludicrous things. For example, Donald Trump is often fact checked, which will obviously increase the amount of false conservative claims. For example, Donald Trump believes climate change is a Chinese hoax. Liberals just don't say th...
