    A suspect is on the run after an armed robbery of a fast food restaurant in Glen Burnie, authorities say. The suspect reportedly entered the Checkers at 1417 Crain Highway around 12:55 a.m., Friday, Sept. 9, and pulled out a handgun before demanding cash, according to Anne Arundel County police. The employees complied with the suspect's demands and handed over an undetermined amount of cash. Officers responded and searched the area but were unable to find the suspect. The suspect is described as a black man with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a green/blue coat and black and white shorts over grey pants.  Robbery Unit detectives are investigating and ask anyone with information to contact 410-222-4720. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are encouraged to contact the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line at 410-222-4700.
    Kyiv (CNN)Valeria Yezhova sits at a little folding table outside the sliding doors of a Kyiv shopping center on a warm afternoon, waiting for someone to sit down in the camping chair across from her and try to give her a run for her money on the checkers board on the table.She doesn't have to wait long. The sign on the table reads "We are helping the Ukrainian army" and the shoppers in this residential neighborhood seem happy to drop a few hryvnia -- the Ukrainian national currency -- into her shoebox, where the pile of bills is quickly growing.What most who walk past -- or sit down to play -- don't appear to realize is that Yezhova hasn't lost a single game in the 10 days that she's been out here. If she weren't raising money for a good cause she could be accused of being a hustler, since the 10-year-old is actually the world champion for her age in checkers, also known as draughts, having won the title last summer."Valeria asked me how she could help the Ukrainian...
    Checkers has introduced a new way to order food at the drive-thru - and it is supposed to speed up the ordering process, but customers hate it.

    Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) does not have “credibility” when addressing his criticism of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson before her Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “You are the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s hearings are set to begin. In the face of those hearing, we are seeing attacks. Josh Hawley set out a series of tweets suggesting Judge Jackson is soft on child porn. It has been debunked by several independent fact-checkers. What does that tell you about the confirmation fight ahead? ” Durbin said, “I’m not sure what it signals. As far as Senator Hawley is concerned, here is the bottom line he’s wrong. He’s inaccurate and unfair in his analysis. Judge Jackson has been scrutinized more than any person I can think of. This is her fourth time in front of the Senate Judiciary Committees. Three previous times she came through with flying colors and bipartisan support. Senator Hawley is making charges that came out of nowhere. Independent fact-checkers like The...
    ONE bride wants a Harry Potter-themed wedding and insists on having an owl as the ring bearer - but experts say it's a risky move. Reddit user Grouchy_Shelter_5221 works with owls and puts on falconry shows. 1One bride's desire for a Harry Potter-themed wedding calls for live owls One of the Redditor's friends turned to them when they were planning a Harry Potter-themed wedding. The idea was to have an owl be the ring bearer and fly the rings down the aisle at the ceremony, Newsweek reports. Grouchy_Shelter was skeptical, warning that there's a risk the birds wouldn't be able to perform the task despite training. They wrote: "Now, in theory, this could be done after all 9 times out of 10 they'll do exactly as I want it's just the 1 time I'm worried about and I don't exactly want to take that risk with wedding rings." Instead, the Redditor offered to bring some of the owls to the ceremony for photo opportunities and a quick falconry show. But, their pal wasn't thrilled with the idea. Most read in...
    A FLORIDA couple made their wedding vows an especially 'tender' moment by including Checkers & Rally's, the fast food chain where they met and later got engaged. Victoria and Arley Smude held their wedding ceremony in front of friends, family, and a 43-foot trailer full of chicken tenders and seasoned fries. 5The Plant City couple met at a Checkers restaurantCredit: Twitter / @CheckersRallys 5The brand provided Victoria with a chicken tender bouquetCredit: Twitter / @CheckersRallys The bride told WFLA that Checkers holds a special place in their hearts because it's where the newlyweds first met – though it wasn't love at first bite. Arley, who thought Victoria had a boyfriend already, spent their first meeting “avoiding her, not talking at all." Once the pair realized their reciprocal attraction, they began a relationship, making the seasoned fries and crispy chicken from Checkers a vital part of their bond. The couple planned their proposal around an essential Checkers menu item: the Fry Lover's Burger, which piles a beef patty with crispy seasoned fries. "I gotta lock this Fry Burger in and keep...
    Fact-checkers are pushing back to refute House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) claims about the House Select Committee. According to CNN, Daniel Dale, Annie Grayer, and Tara Subramaniam have highlighted and debunked three critical claims by the Republican lawmaker. 1. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Select Committee appointments: McCarthy recently criticized Pelosi for politicizing the committee saying, "Nancy Pelosi decided, for the first time in history by any speaker, to deny the minority to even put their individuals on a committee."" Dale, Grayer, and Subramaniam broke down how this claim is actually misleading. While Pelosi did reject two out of five of McCarthy's proposed committee members, the fact-checkers noted that she did accept three. However, McCarthy is the real reason why his selections were not advanced. "Pelosi did reject two of McCarthy's five proposed committee members, Reps. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, on account of concerns about their "statements made and actions taken" -- but she accepted the other three McCarthy picks, and she also gave McCarthy a chance to suggest another two members to replace...
    Editor’s note: What follows is an excerpt from Kayleigh McEnany’s new book “For Such a Time as This: My Faith Journey Through the White House and Beyond.” It can be purchased here. Since I left the White House, there has been a whole lot of vindication. As it turns out, the press was wrong, and Trump was right on a whole host of issues. We now know that there was not verified intelligence detailing Russian bounties on the heads of US soldiers. We know that President Trump was correct in raising the possibility that the Wuhan Institute of Virology might have been the origin of COVID-19. And we know that the press was wrong in reporting “Protesters Dispersed With Tear Gas So Trump Could Pose at Church.” I told the White House press corps all of these facts from the podium, but it didn’t stop them from running with the false reporting. While there have been countless examples of erroneous reporting (now exposed), there has been very little accountability. No journalist lost their job. Very few corrections have been issued....
    PolitiFact and Facebook have been slammed for an August 2020 'fact check' that claimed it was false to say it was 'perfectly legal' for Kyle Rittenhouse to carry his AR-15 rifle at the Kenosha riot, after a judge tossed out his firearms possession charge on Monday.  The judge in the Rittenhouse case yesterday threw out the gun possession charge, ruling that the law is written in such a confusing way that it allows for the interpretation that 17-year-olds can carry guns if those gun barrels are shorter than 16 inches.   'I‘m still trying to figure out what it says, what is prohibited,' Judge Bruce Schroeder said. 'Now, I have the good fortune of having some experience and a legal education. How is your ordinary citizen supposed to acquaint herself with what this law says?'  However, in August 2020, PolitiFact ruled that it was 'false' to say it was 'perfectly legal' for the teen to carry his gun, as a Facebook user had claimed.  PolitiFact and Facebook seized on a post by Maine resident Trish Beck, who wrote that it was 'perfectly...
    The scene of John Dutton killing Checkers has hit the web for “Yellowstone” fans. At the end of the third episode of season four, the head of the Dutton family engaged in a shootout against the man responsible for assembling the assassination team. (REVIEW: ‘Yellowstone‘ Is Incredible In Season Four, Episode Three ‘Winning Or Learning’) In classic Dutton fashion, he delivered the epic line, “Would you like to send me to heaven before I park your ass in hell?” right before blasting away. Take a moment to watch the incredible scene below. Of all the “Yellowstone” death scenes, this one from John and Checkers is right near the top of the list. I was going crazy when I first saw it. What an epic line to deliver right before taking out the trash to the train station. “Care to send me to heaven before I park your sorry ass in hell?” One Stunning Death At The End Of The New ‘Yellowstone’ Episode Has Fans Speechless https://t.co/xwuk3iVI0p — Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) November 15, 2021 Through the first three episodes...
    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” network political analyst Brit Hume pressed The Dispatch editor and CEO Stephen Hayes for failing to fact-check the Hunter Biden laptop story. Hayes touted his outlet’s fact-checking as part of Facebook’s “robust fact-checking program,” to which Hume asked what The Dispatch’s fact-checkers had to say about the younger Biden story that was suppressed by both Facebook and Twitter. According to Hayes, The Dispatch didn’t fact-check the Biden story partly “because there wasn’t enough information in those early days.” “The problem Facebook faces right now is both what they were doing … but also what they were saying they were doing,” Hayes outlined. “And if you look back at what Facebook was making public, they were telling a certain story about Facebook as a good place, or Facebook and Instagram as a good place for young people. This was a place for people to get together. And then you have these documents showing that internally they had come to a different understanding.” The Fox News contributor continued, “I think the same is true on...
    Critics are slamming Twitter after its fact-checkers added a 'misleading' alert to an obituary about a young woman who reportedly died after contracting a rare blood-clotting disease induced by the COVID-19 vaccine. Twitter user Kelly Bee shared the obituary for Jessica Berg Wilson, of Seattle, with the caption 'an "exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions," passed away from COVID Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia. She did not want to get vaccinated.' Twitter flagged the tweet as 'misleading' with a link to an article on 'why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people.' The tweet was also 'shadow banned,' meaning it cannot be replied to, shared or liked. Wilson, a 37-year-old mother-of-two, died on September 7 of Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, a rare blood disease in which tiny clots form throughout the body, destroying platelets and preventing the blood from reaching vital organs, according to the obituary.  The tweet came from an unverified Twitter user named Kelly Bee, who shared the The Oregonian's obituary for Jessica Berg Wilson, of Seattle Most critics were disgusted that Twitter was...
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is blaming the Biden administration's policy on migrants for the spread of COVID-19 in Texas -- not Republicans' adamant refusal to incorporate mask mandate.s Now, fact-checkers are breaking down his claim and setting the record straight. During an appearance on Fox News back in August, the Texas lawmaker sounded off about the Biden administration's release of thousands of undocumented immigrants into one county in the Lone Star state; a decision he claims is the reason for the state's alarming spike in Delta variant COVID cases. "In the last several months, the Biden administration has released over 7,000 illegal aliens who were COVID positive just in one Texas city," Cruz said, adding that the president's border policies are "endangering not just the people of Texas, but people all across the country." The Republican lawmaker went on to describe Biden and Harris' open-border policy as a "superspreader event." "Joe Biden likes to talk about this pandemic," Cruz said. "Well, I'll tell you what, the election of Joe Biden and...
    Social media misinformation outrage cycles tend to go through familiar phases. There’s the initial controversy over some misleading story that goes viral, then the platform’s response. Then someone asks “What about Fox News?” Finally, someone points out that the real problem, as far as social media is concerned, is the algorithms that determine who sees what. Those algorithms are primarily optimized for engagement, not accuracy. False and misleading stories can be more engaging than true ones, so absent some intervention by the platform, that’s what people are going to see. Fixing the algorithm, the argument goes, would be a better way to deal with the problem than taking down viral misinformation after the fact. But fix it how? To change the ranking to favor true stories over false ones, say, the platforms would need a way to systematically judge everything that gets shared, or at least everything that gets shared a nontrivial amount. The current prevailing approach to false material involves punting the judgment to some outside party. Facebook, for example, partners with organizations like Factcheck.org to determine whether a...
    The conservative Media Research Center (MRC) is pushing back on the claim by Democrats that Republicans are the party in support of defunding the police following weeks of attempts to flip the narrative onto the GOP. In a Wednesday column, the MRC blasted the claim as "a bald-faced lie," calling out media fact-checkers for defending Democrats and accusing them of being part of a "Democrat protection racket."  MRC: MAINSTREAM NETWORKS BLAST GOP STATE ELECTION LAWS, LARGELY IGNORE SWEEPING DEMOCRAT-BACKED ELECTIONS BILL Besides a recent article from the Washington Post that gave the Biden White House "Three Pinocchios" for the claim and another critical piece from FactCheck.org, prominent fact-checkers have been silent on such statements. "Here’s an easy test to see whether fact-checking websites can make any claim to be ‘independent’ and nonpartisan in tone. Biden staffers claimed Republicans ‘defunded the police.’ That’s a bald-faced lie," wrote Director of Media Analysis Tim Graham.  In June, White House advisor Cedric Richmond claimed Republicans "defunded the police" by voting against the $1.9-trillion American Rescue Plan this year, which he said included funding for...
    Facebook vice-president Nick Clegg has admitted the company's fact-checkers – employed to root out alleged 'fake news' from its social-media platforms – could be biased and pursuing their own political agendas, according to a European Commission document obtained by The Mail on Sunday. The former Deputy Prime Minister made the admission to EU officials in November during talks about how the tech giant was tackling misinformation flooding its site. Facebook announced fact-checking measures in 2016 amid claims that its failure to remove misleading content helped to swing that year's US Presidential election in favour of Donald Trump. The measures, which allow users to alert Facebook to content they believed to be fake, was applauded by many.  Facebook vice-president Nick Clegg has admitted the company's fact-checkers – employed to root out alleged 'fake news' from its social-media platforms – could be biased and pursuing their own political agendas, according to a European Commission document obtained by The Mail on Sunday The former Deputy Prime Minister made the admission to EU officials in November during talks about how the tech...
    It’s not an accident that most Americans are starting to hear about the lab leak theory of COVID-19 origin as a potential legitimate source for the global pandemic’s outbreak. It’s because the theory was suppressed for more than a year by corporate media fact-checkers and their allies in Big Tech. The pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post have been filled with articles in recent weeks about the newfound potential legitimacy of the lab-leak theory. The theory posits that COVID-19 was accidentally released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, potentially after being genetically engineered as a part of “gain-of-function” research. Evidence for the lab-leak theory has been publicly available but censored from the public on social media. When the theory first began to surface in early 2020, fact-checkers far and wide decried it as a conspiracy theory. In September 2020, PolitiFact labeled the lab leak theory as a “pants-on-fire” lie that was “inaccurate and ridiculous.” The premature fact-check has now been retracted in May. Furthermore, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting called it a “lunatic conspiracy...
    The left-leaning American news media’s stunning reversal on whether the coronavirus could have been created in a Chinese laboratory is the latest example of the dangers of fact checking.    For most of 2020 the supposed arbiters of truthiness insisted that lab leak stories should not be taken seriously and should be suppressed on social media. Just yesterday Facebook finally lifted is baseless ban of the lab leak theory. The real problem here is not that fact checkers got something wrong, it’s that they have the power to censor what journalism Americans see and consume unilaterally.    Nobody is checking the fact checkers, and it is time that changed. It’s time for government to regulate the fact checking industry.  This may seem antithetical to traditional conservative values of small government, but the ubiquitous and monopolistic nature of social media, the power it has to frame how we see the world, is an existential challenge. We cannot be slaves to orthodoxy if that means Americans are subject not only to lies, but also the censorship of the truth.  FACEBOOK TAKES HEAT FOR...
    Michigan Republican state Rep. Matt Maddock introduced a bill that would require “fact checkers” to register with the state and would fine them $1,000 per day if they fail to do so. Maddock, whose wife, Meshawn Maddock, is the co-chair of Michigan’s Republican Party, introduced the Fact Checker Registration Act with eight other Republicans on Tuesday. The bill defines a fact checker as anybody who publishes online or in print within the state, is paid by a fact-checking organization and is a member of the International Fact Check Network. “Social media companies deplatform people, politicians, and businesses on the basis of ‘fact checkers’ who relish their roles punishing those they deem ‘false,’” Maddock wrote in a Facebook post last week. “My legislation will put Fact Checkers on notice: don’t be wrong, don’t be sloppy and you better be right.” Under Maddock’s bill, fact checkers who register with the state would have to insure themselves with $1 million fidelity bonds, and would allow anybody to sue a fact checker over “any wrongful conduct that is a violation of the laws of...
    Big Tech coordinates with the abortion industry to censor “pro-life voices,” Lila Rose, president of Live Action and author of Fighting for Life: Becoming a Force for Change in a Wounded World, said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak. Rose recalled Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s donation of $2 million; one million in 2017 and another million in 2019, “[Sheryl Sandberg] has donated $2 million publicly so far to Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion chain,” she stated. “Big Tech is notoriously ruled by far-left ideologues, so it’s a huge problem when we talk about the fair and open sharing of information, that these groups are basically colluding with the abortion industry to shut down pro-life voices.” In 2019, Facebook suppressed Live Action’s content while accusing the organization of spreading “fake news” — as deemed by an “independent fact-checker” — for noting that “abortion is never medically necessary.” The technology giant also sent an alert to Live Action’s followers accusing the organization of posting “false” information. Rose noted Facebook’s “fact-checkers” included two abortionists. “We had two facts checkers that were two abortionists —...
    Despite fact-checkers insisting the claim was false, 62 per cent of Britons think Brexit helped the nation’s Coronavirus vaccine rollout, with an even stronger majority saying the European Union had been outright hostile to the United Kingdom over vaccine supplies. Nations worldwide have been locked into efforts to vaccinate their populations against the Covid-19 virus in 2021, the method of moving forwards from widespread and damaging lockdowns world governments decided would be most effective. Brexit Britain ‘Towering Head and Shoulders’ Above EU on Vaccines https://t.co/43wTtZEiil — Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) February 8, 2021 There were dire warnings in 2020 that if Britain decided to go ahead with Brexit and attempt to run its own vaccination programme it would find itself getting shots slower and more expensively than the European Union, but the opposite has actually proven to be true. As of Sunday, over 47 per cent of people in the United Kingdom have had a shot of coronavirus vaccine, whereas in Europe the figure stands at 15 per cent, a major political scandal on the continent where millions put trust in...
    In a column for the Wall Street Journal, James Freeman skewers Facebook and Politifact for suppressing “news and commentary about Biden family influence peddling .” From the Wall Street Journal: Perhaps PolitiFact should spend less time “fact-checking” and more time fact-gathering. There’s certainly a need for some journalism applied to this subject given the remarkable sums collected from overseas energy players by Biden entities despite a lack of energy expertise or experience within the family. Beyond oil, your correspondent humbly submits that even Biden energy deals that don’t involve fossil fuels still deserve scrutiny. Peter Schweizer is the author of the fascinating book, “Profiles in Corruption.” Last year he wrote in the New York Post about Joe Biden’s brother Frank Biden during the period when Vice President Biden was playing a leading role in U.S. policy on Latin America: On Oct. 4, 2016, the Costa Rican Ministry of Public Education signed a letter of intent with Frank’s company, Sun Fund Americas. The project involved allowing a company called GoSolar to operate solar power facilities in Costa Rica. The previous year, the Obama-Biden administration’s OPIC had authorized...
              Facebook’s team of fact-checkers claimed Saturday that The Tennessee Star’s article comparing mask-wearing and infection rates is both “partly false” and “factually inaccurate.” But the social media giant made a judgment based on the content and conclusions of an entirely different article by The Federalist. The Star based its article on a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Facebook’s fact-checking link led to a “verdict” written by Health Feedback. This organization identifies itself as “a worldwide network of scientists sorting fact from fiction in health and medical media coverage.” Health Feedback included a link to a screen capture – not the original source – of The Federalist’s article. The right-of-center outlet’s article made a different, definitive assessment: [The CDC report] shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them. Due to this statement, the fact-checker ruled in its “verdict” that The Federalist article and other similar articles are guilty of flawed reasoning. Health Feedback explained that mask effectiveness can’t be evaluated by...

    The Daily Wire and PolitiFact don’t see eye to eye on whether a pro-Trump ad is misleading when it shows Joe Biden saying "taxes are going to be raised" if he wins the upcoming election. “The ad launched on Aug. 4 before getting slapped with a ‘mostly false’ rating by PolitiFact and subsequently blocked by Facebook the next month,” Daily Wire reporter John Bickley wrote. The ad by America First Action Super Pac called “Too Risky” directly quoted Democratic presidential nominee Biden saying, “If you elect me, your taxes are going to be raised, not cut,” and cautions that the Tax Policy Center admitted Biden’s plan would raise taxes “on all income groups.” JOE BIDEN, CNN’S ANDERSON COOPER APPEAR TO DISPENSE WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING DURING TOWN HALL COMMERCIAL BREAK “Was America First actually guilty of pushing a 'mostly false' message in the ad?

    I tried four hot dogs from four different chains (hot dog pictured not included). Shutterstock I compared hot dogs from Sonic, Five Guys, Checkers, and Dairy Queen. I ordered a beef hot dog from each place and had it topped with ketchup and mustard.  Overall, I thought Sonic's All-American dog was the tastiest and most affordable.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Commonly topped with condiments and served between golden buns, hot dogs are grilled sausages that are popular in the US. And although there's nothing quite like a fresh-off-the-grill hot dog in the summer, I wanted to see how fast-food chains would serve up this classic meal.  As part of an ongoing Insider taste test series, I put four popular fast-food chains — Sonic Drive-In, Five Guys, Checkers, and Dairy Queen — to the test to see which one was best able to satisfy my hot-dog cravings.  For consistency's sake, I ordered a beef hot dog in a bun from each eatery and had them topped with both ketchup and mustard. I judged the hot dogs...
    UFC boss Dana White fell foul of fact checkers as he backed Donald Trump for a second term as US president. In a speech to the Republican National Convention on Thursday night, the 51-year-old said "no one" could have anticipated the coronavirus pandemic's challenges. 2Dana White defended Donald Trump's pandemic record in a speech to the RNC White backed Trump ahead of his successful 2016 election campaign and has not relented in his support this time around.

    Just like Joe Biden, vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris supports outright, mandatory gun confiscation. She just disguises it under a couple of flowery words: “mandatory” and “buyback.” This of course is when all of the fake media’s fake fact checkers pour out of the woodwork to lie with the false claim Kamala Harris Never Said She Wanted to Confiscate Guns. We know the fake fact checkers are going to publish their fake fact checks with their fake claims because that’s what the fake fact checkers did to protect their precious Barry Obama, who also said he wanted to confiscate your guns. Further, the fake fact checkers published lies to protect Hillary Clinton, who also said she wanted to confiscate your guns. Oh, and Joe Biden said he wanted to confiscate your gun, and he also used flowery words about “buybacks,” and as you will see below, he has not taken that sentiment back, even after the fake media tried to help him cover up that fact. So let’s be very clear before the fake fact checkers publish their fake fact...
    With a president that has told over 20,000 lies, and massive disinformation campaigns being waged both domestically and from foreign entities attempting to interfere in U.S. politics, the role of fact-checkers has become critical in sorting out what to believe. But perhaps you’ve had the experience of providing information from fact-checkers to Trump supporters only to get a response from them that is dismissive because it comes from so-called “biased media.” That pretty much encapsulates why the partisan divide in America is almost impossible to bridge. Right-wing reporter Sheryl Attkisson has written a piece that is designed to give Trump supporters permission to dismiss fact checks. It is titled, “The Troubling Fact Is That Media Fact-Checkers Tend to Lean Left.” She claims that checking facts is basically illusory. Many such efforts fail because they amount to a circular feedback loop of verification. The fact checkers are like-minded journalists or often liberal Silicon Valley gatekeepers, who frequently rely on partisan news sources and political activists to control narratives on a wide variety of issues and controversies. Right out of the gate, Attkisson...
    Twitter stoked the ire of President Donald Trump — and a number of his supporters — when the platform applied a fact-check to several of the president’s tweets.
    New York Times columnist Tom Friedman’s proposal that Joe Biden shouldn’t debate President Donald Trump unless “a real-time fact-checking team” is part of the mix is an ironic illustration of the closed-mindedness of the left. Why would Friedman want a candidate who is eager to contrast his views with Trump’s to impose conditions that would make a debate less likely, unless, of course, Friedman realizes that the failing Biden would be particularly disastrous in a debate? That seems to be the case here, as Friedman’s other condition — that Trump agree to release his tax returns for 2016 through 2018 — is just as unrealistic but not for the reason Democrats would have you believe. It’s not that they think Trump is concealing some sinister criminality but that the returns would be a gold mine for ginning up class resentment against the mega-wealthy Trump and fodder to smear him with innuendo. Friedman recommends the fact-checkers be approved by both candidates “and that 10 minutes before the scheduled conclusion of the debate this team report on any misleading statements, phony numbers...
    Facebook has faced internal and external criticism for the policy loophole for political ads. Founder Mark Zuckerberg has repeatedly defended the exception, saying he does not want his company to be "the arbiter of truth." Facebook's information for publishers contains the claim that "by limiting political speech we would leave people less informed about what their elected officials are saying and leave politicians less accountable for their words." One Facebook executive claimed that Facebook had to refrain from fact-checking political ads or else it might "become that which we fear," using a "Lord of the Rings" reference to make his point. Twitter recently began attaching warning labels to some of Trump's false claims about voting. Snap, the maker of the Snapchat app, said last week it would no longer promote Trump's accounts in light of his comments inciting "racial violence and injustice." YouTube and Google have also removed over 300 Trump ads for policy violations. Zuckerberg posted last week that Facebook was "going to review our policies allowing discussion and threats of state use of force to see if there...
    In August 2016, The Washington Post promoted a new book by its reporters titled "Trump Revealed" that sounded an alarm. A book blurb from USA Today announced, "Any voter who is not already devoted to Trump's cause will find plenty of reason to think long and hard about whether to support him after reading this book." The Post wrote no book in 2016 titled "Hillary Clinton Revealed." No one needed a warning about her. Now The Post is promoting a new election-year book by their "fact-checker" squad: chief Glenn Kessler and his lieutenants Salvador Rizzo and Meg Kelly. The title is "Donald Trump and His Assault on Truth: The President's Falsehoods, Misleading Claims, and Flat-Out Lies."
