From OP link: "And yet despite all that truth-squadding, lies live on, (un)healthy as ever. Politicians keep spouting falsehoods, and Americans keep believing them."

It goes on to look at trust in media. The media is biased so how can it be trusted?

Like I said, most wont get it but a handful of thinkers here will.

Much of what the fact checkers spout is opinion. Not all, but a lot.

much of what fact checkers spout is in opposition to what some want to be true.
