    Politifact is made up of quasi-journalists.  It exists because other quasi-journalists are so lazy that the fertilizer that gets broadcast by the Conservative Spew Machine gets published and broadcast as though it came from a reliable source.  

    They allow conservatives to make blatantly false accusations in the interest of appearing "balanced" because (what the hell) if one side is telling the truth, then you have to offer up a dollop of bald-faced lies to offset it.  

    So if the quasi-journalist would DO THEIR FUCKING JOBS then Politifact would not have to exist anyway.  The problem is that the "fact checkers" are no better than the rest of the media.  I can't tell you how many times I've e-mailed a Politifact reporter to call him/her on the dumbshit stuff they're passed off as research.

    The fact is that the "end Medicare" statement is not false, UNLESS you're talking a big gulp of conservative Kool-Aid.  I really don't pay much attention to these guys any more - they jumped the shark.
