Brit Hume Sees Fact Checkers Pushing Liberal Opinion as Facts

Article:


On Wednesday's Tucker Carlson Tonight, veteran Fox News analyst Brit Hume called out journalistic "fact checkers" who assume that liberal opinions on the illegal immigration issue are facts, and therefore that the conservative counter-opinions are claimed by those journalists to be not factual.

He and host Tucker Carlson also argued that the current illegal immgration problem is still complex in spite of illegal border crossings being down from a decade ago because of all the children and families who now cross.

Carlson began the segment by suggesting that journalists engaged in fact-checking are often "repeating Democratic talking points" insread of actual fact-checking. Hume complained that "fact-checking has become a branch of opinion journalism" and recalled about fact-checkers claiming that it was wrong for President Donald Trump to claim that there is a "crisis" at the Southern border.

He then added: "Whether there's a crisis at the border or not is not a matter of fact -- it is a matter of opinion. One man's crisis is another man's problem."


He then complained about the Washington Post's response to President Trump recalling that there were 266,000 border apprehensions in two years which the Post complained was "misleading" even if it was true.

As a Conservative "Independent", seems to me it works both ways.

I sometime wonder if HALF the reason the Conservative "movement" hasn't gained more ground amongst all the 'great unwashed' is the number of fibs our own side has told. We lob a hand grenade called "fact"; The other side merely pulls the pin of fact-checking, and lobs it back at us where it blows up in our own face.
