The bias Politifact has for Common Core
Politifact recently debunked numerous Anti-Common Core points and they found them all from mostly false to pants on fire.
Pam Stewart on the other hand tells whopper supporting common core and she gets a half true.
I wrote the author and said: Isn't that a little generous? Everybody says it is going to cost additional money, some a lot of additional money and she says it's not. Sure put some context to it but at the end of the day what she said was false and I believe she said it to mislead the people of Florida.
To which he responded: thanks. I don't get to choose the ratings. They have a group of editors who do that. Angie Holan is the main editor,firstname.lastname@example.org.
The implication is obvious and that’s he wouldn’t have given Pam Stewart a half true.
Politfact loses its credibility if it doesn’t just present the facts and remains consistent with its rulings. Over common core it has lost its credibility.
