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...

As such, I assume the full BOP. I must prove, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, that one of JonBenet's mother, father, and brother was responsible for her death. Standard format....

Was the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki justified?

Nukalord

President Harry Truman was NOT justified. Three points and that's all I'll need. 1. The Nightmare was gruesome. Skin hung from people's body, the dead floated down the river while children with burn all over their back went to get a drink, hospitals collapsed killing many doctors and nurse causing the line of needed to be treated victims was unending, the radiation gave many cancer such as leukemia over the years. 2. Japan was already weak through its military and economy. The reason wh...

The Cincinnati Zoo is allowed to shoot the gorilla to preserve a human life.

DebateWonder
SirSocrates

This is referring to the shooting of an endangered gorilla to protect the boy. I believe that the zoo did what was necessary to save the child's life, even though it is tragic that the gorilla died. I thank my opponent for joining this debate, and I will be eager to debate him/her. Rules: 1. No forfeiting. 2. No swear words....
