New York Times 'Fact Check' Strenuously Objects to Factual Trump Statements
By Tim Graham | January 10, 2019 7:37 AM EST

The New York Times joined the rest of the liberal media in leaping on Trump's immigration address as "fact checkers." On Wednesday, a Times collective singled out eight claims from Trump....and only one rather flaccid mention of the Democrat response. Overall, two of Trump's claims were judged "False," one was "Misleading," and five were categorized as "this needs context." The only Democrat claim evaluated was in the last category.

The Times began with a lame, politically charged False on Trump:

    “The federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security.”

    False.

    Democrats have offered $1.3 billion in funding for border security measures like enhanced surveillance and fortified fencing. They do not support Mr. Trump’s border wall.
