Look What’s MISSING From the White House!
(UnitedVoice.com) – Republicans have long believed fact-checkers are not targeting politicians equally. It seems they’re adding credibility to this theory now that Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has taken over.
According to a review done by Fox News Digital, fact-checkers are seemingly ignoring the new White House press secretary since she took over on May 13. Most of the major verifiers, including The Washington Post, Factcheck.org, The Associated Press, and others, have not investigated any of the claims she has made. According to Fox, the only site that has called her out is Politifact, and even that site has only done it twice.

The review asserted that Jean-Pierre has made numerous wrong claims, including about the immigration crisis. In August, she dismissed Fox White House reporter Peter Doocy’s claim, saying migrants weren’t just “walking across” the border, but Doocy insisted that was exactly what many of them did. Still, none of the fact-checkers called her out.
Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post said fact-checkers aren’t going after her because she’s a spokesperson, not a public figure. However, when President Donald Trump was in office, Kessler verified statements from press secretaries Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kayleigh McEnany on several occasions.
Do you believe the fact-checking websites are intentionally avoiding Jean-Pierre?
