  •  Politifact was always a scam (3+ / 0-)

    They just realized that the original scam wasn't "value-added" enough in the Age of Google, since anyone can look up statistics.  So they shifted to something they could do easier than some random person, which was to talk to "authorities" to determine the subjective context of claims.  But that's just generic punditry.

    But nobody's buying flowers from the flower lady.
