When a 'Fact-Check' Becomes a Yes, But ...

When the "fact checker" works for the Washington Post.

This is shameful:

The bogus claim that Obama ‘skips’ his intelligence briefings

Here's the facts: "Fact checker" Glenn Kessler made no attempt to refute (or bolster) the claim that Obama is a "president who skips half of his intelligence briefings."  Even though he pronounces the claim to be FALSE.  Kessler simply pulls a bait-and-switch that amounts to admitting the claim to be true but arguing that other presidents in the past did the same or worse.

That's not a refutation.  That's a dodge.

Shame on this faux fact checker for his clumsy attempt at subterfuge.
