Bernie Sanders, the socialist U.S. Senator from Vermont, criticized Fox News for going after his claim about repealing and replacing ObamaCare. Sanders claimed that “thousands” of Americans would die if the law was dismantled, which some Fox News commentators mocked and criticized.
Sanders’ defense is based on PolitiFact saying that his comment was generally defensible since it was not too specific. PolitiFact said his statement was “mostly true.”
This is the same PolitiFact which rated Obama’s “if you like your doctor, you can keep him” remark as a “true” claim (which it was not).
