The Liberal Media has a Bad History with Fact-Checking: Mitt Romney’s ’47 Percent’ Comment was Right After All

After all the fact-checking between the liberal media and Donald Trump, it seems everyone had forgotten that the liberal media has a shaky track record with facts and fact-checking. Going back to 2012, the liberal media hyped the ’47 percent’ comment by then-GOP nominee Mitt Romney in 2012. Yet the liberal media didn’t correct the record and say that Romney was right in making those comments, which CBS News admitted [1] in one article.

Instead, the liberal media says things such as Hillary Clinton was right [2] in calling Trump supporters ‘basket of deplorables’.
