Fact checking has become partisan and is therefore no longer valid as it is today.

Yep... but it seems that only the Democrats continue to believe in the fact checking statistics because it attempts to prove the truth as fallacy... 

I've heard that fact checkers didn't exist until the truth that one side didn't want made known was delivered on other news media.

Sadly... it always seems to pile up behind the Democrats as the ones spreading fake news, attempting to debunk the truth, lying about what's true and claiming the truth to be conspiracy theory.

If only there were Republicans doing the same... it might be more difficult to differentiate between the two but yet there again... that seems to be the lopsidedness of our progressively liberal counterparts to subterfuge and sabotage the truth for what ever they're interested in pushing.

FWIW

Fact checkers existed but only for very important news. Otherwise, people agreed more than not. Maybe not with outcomes but they agreed on the main facts.

LOL... yeah... but then we would have to change our vocabulary for a lot of things.

I woke  (opened my eyes) up this morning.

I came home late and woke (startled) the neighbor's dog.

Not at all, never said that and certainly am not in favour of that but it cannot be understated that one side is consistently in need of a fact check, although your post leads me to conclude nothing I can say would possibly sway you so let’s leave it there, I don’t feel like talking to a concrete wall

Your statement is so biased against the right that it was a logical conclusion that you felt the left should be unchecked and running wild.  Can you explain why you are so biased against the right?

I don't feel the left should be unchecked or running wild, what I want is for the right to be as checked as the left holds itself too, so if Newsmax could be more like WashPo, or OAN more like CNN, where there is at least not outright lying, like the BIG lie which the right keeps perpetuating for no apparent reason but to manipulate the people who are watching, which is exactly what is happening.

Sorry, I had to laugh at that.  If you think CNN doesn't distort and lie, then I have some really nice bridges I'd like to sell you.
