    More, Please: WH Clean up Team Dispatched After Biden Admin Gonged by ‘New Twitter’ Fact Check

    Published on

    Popular right-wing Twitter accounts were frequently “fact-checked” under the previous Twitter policy before being abruptly removed, permanently banned, or both, presumably on the grounds that they were disseminating false information or something similar.

    However Elon Musk is the new sheriff in town, and we’re already hearing fantastic ideas and seeing important changes implemented on the platform, which is a wonderful change after years of lopsided, outrageously (and intentionally) politicized administration.

    As my colleague Bob Hoge has documented, one thing we’ve been noticing more of is the fact-checking tool “Birdwatch,” which is based on contributions from Twitter users, being used on the accounts of leftist “thought leaders” and politicians, including President Joe Biden.

    But in a shocking turn of events on Wednesday, the Biden White House seemed so humiliated by a Birdwatch fact-check of one of their tweets praising Joe Biden for his alleged “leadership” on the upcoming Social Security cost of living adjustment (COLA), they ultimately deleted the tweet completely and did not replace it with a new one (as of this writing).

    This is how it transpired.

    After that, the White House quietly removed the tweet, but not until others had already seen it:

    More on this story via The Red State:

    Back in October, we noted the preposterous spin the White House was putting on the COLA, with press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre incredibly claiming that, “This means that seniors will have a chance to get ahead of inflation, due to the rare combination of rising benefits and falling premiums.”

    “We will put more money in their pockets and provide them with a little extra breathing room,” she continued.

    Unfortunately, because Democrats are so used to supposedly “respectable” fact-checkers at Politifact and elsewhere letting them get away with outright highway robbery. CONTINUE READING…
