When Fact Checking Gets Snarky

Politifact has issues. Not only have they displayed a penchant for the both-sides-meme, but now they’re getting smarmy about it.

This for example. They posted a ridiculously smug “quiz” to see if you can tell the difference between the president’s Affordable Care Act and Romneycare.

Get it?

They’re the same. But they’re really not because the ACA passed on a national level with considerable precedent for failure — a precedent which forced the bill to be more restrained every time it’s been attempted.

It’s really a shame because Politifact showed such promise as an arbiter of the truth and reality.
