    Legitimate Fact Checking site

    I am interested in finding out if there is a fact checking web site out there that does just that. Every fact checking site that I have come across to date turns out to be operated by lefties, and pretends to be a neutral information source, when they are really just propaganda sites that are on a mission to shape our political landscape in favor of lefties. The term "fact checking" appears to be a euphemism, because they are not actually there to check facts, they are there to identify specific facts, regardless of how relevant they are, and assemble them out of context for the purpose of manipulating how people see the political landscape. Is anybody here aware of any fact checking sites that are not on a mission to shape the political landscape in favor of the left?

    Please post a legitimate "fact checking" site if you know of one.
    Lefties can only think like lefties. Righties can think like lefties AND like righties.
    Lefties only know lefty media, righties know lefty media AND righty media.

    The main problem with fact checking is that political types use ambiguous language when talking public. I usually use it myself when corresponding, professionally, with other businesses or clients. Plausible deniability.

    Then, there is the reality that facts, or in this case, the truth, is deliberately being obfuscated by the powers that be. These supposed "fact checking" sources have become an industry in itself. This applies to both left and right.

    Can you post some links to a couple of these "right" fact checking sites?

    I trust my knowledge and judgment.

    After that, all bets off.

    Interesting..... Can you post examples of the checked facts and how they've been manipulated to present a specific perspective. I'm curious to understand what you mean so I can identify how the facts are taken out of context rendering them no longer facts. This would be super helpful.
    I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    Right wing fact check site sounds pretty self defeating to me.
