Who’s fact checking the fact checkers?

by thoughtfulconservative

I lifted the following and posted it in the comments at Fairly Conservative, but I just had to post it here also.

During Tuesday’s debate, John McCain repeated an assertion he had made before:

In Lebanon, I stood up to President Reagan, my hero, and said, if we send Marines in there, how can we possibly beneficially affect this situation? And said we shouldn’t.

Unfortunately, almost 300 brave young Marines were killed.

The finest minds in American journalism set out to check McCain’s claim and discovered it to be true.

Heh. So if the fact checkers can’t agree, what recourse do we have?

  1. it’s odd that ABC article even had the digital computer stuff wrong too. The first digital computer was in fact a government project it was the ABC built at Iowa State University… Pretty bad fact checking.
