Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Those that like the bias, won't bother

You are correct ithink, it's easy to see the bias for those that care to look.

Politifact is, in reality, Tampa Bay Times politipinion. Yes, I invented a new word.

Harry, I read it and know that the bias is there. Its an opinion not to confused with fact.

Time to start the weekend, have a good one.

Oh Kendall, argue with your little buddies at Chucky Cheese this weekend.

"Clearly there is a demonstrable bias there.."

And yet you have not demonstrated such bias anywhere.

That wasn't the article to which I referred. I meant the article about falsifying the temperature record. Did you read it and find bias?

"Why, it's a PolitiFact ruling from June, 2012 that calls this very same statement "half true.""

It appears your reading comprehension isn't up to par Tired. Read the whole article and then read the one about the Lie of the Year and you might understand.

Clearly there is a demonstrable bias there and it's biased the way you like I guess. Have at it, just don't think it's an UN biased arbiter of fact.

Harry, if you want to site politifact as your source of record go right ahead, just don't expect me to ignore the obvious bias that it represents.

Tired, can you prove that the Times is influencing Politicfact?

Yes or No

Can you show that Politicfact behaves in a manner that is not professional?

Yes or No

From what I have seen from you and others, Politifact checks it's sources ans tries to contact those their articles are about. They rate both Conservatives and Liberals with the same scrutiny. If you are able to prove otherwise, please do. Otherwise you have failed to prove your argument.

So they cover for him until he no longer has to face voters and try to reclaim any credibility they might have left

But what's that, over there on the right side of that PolitiFact page? Under "related rulings"? Why, it's a PolitiFact ruling from June, 2012 that calls this very same statement "half true." Obama has a reasonable point: His health care law does take pains to allow Americans to keep their health plan if they want to remain on it. But Obama suggests that keeping the insurance you like is guaranteed.

Harry what rating did they originally give Obama on that very statement?

So have you read the article and found bias in it?

For president of the United States, the Tampa Bay Times recommends Barack Obama.

Ahhhhhh yes but Since 2000, the Times has issued 10 endorsements in elections for U.S. President, U.S. Senate, and Florida Governor. Nine of the 10 endorsements went to Democrats, with the sole exception being the Times? endorsement of Democrat-leaning Independent Charlie Crist in the 2010 U.S. Senate contest.

And as far as Politicact being "in the tank for Obama," I don't believe that. Politifact did give him their " lie of the year award." In view of that, how can you claim they're "in the tank" for him?
