This could come in handy the next time somebody uses Politifact to contest a point you've made. Though it's hardly the first time Politifact's journalistic integrity and objectivity has been rightfully called into question, hopefully from this point on people will start viewing them as the incompetent clowns that they actually are.

In fact, there was absolutely no credible source behind Politifact's declaration backing up the BOY president's (not to mention all the other Democrats') claim that Obamacare would allow everyone to keep their existing healthcare plans. Was it merely journalistic negligence? or were Politifact's intentions to deliberately mislead the public on the eve of an election?

I'm not sure there is anything that better summarizes the depths of the dishonesty involved with selling the low-information voters on Obamacare than the Democrats' collective claim that people could keep their insurance and their doctors. Unfortunately, it also doesn't say much for the competence and integrity of American journalism either.

I'm the American public and forgot about that.
