PolitiFact’s PP hackery

If, like me, you’ve ever wondered how reliable PolitiFact is … wonder no more. Their Planned Parenthood butt covering of August 21, 2015, is Leftist Epic.

The statement in question was: “Zero Planned Parenthood facilities are licensed to do mammograms. Planned Parenthood, women don’t need you!” — Alliance Defending Freedom on Monday, August 3rd, 2015 in a Twitter post

The FDA and Planned Parenthood agree this statement is 100% true. The article admits this, but the GRAPHIC they provide, which is the thing people will see most, says it is only HALF TRUE.

Their quibble is that Planned Parenthood does breast exams and refers patients for mammograms.

2015_08 24 Half true I perform heart surgery

The article complains about the “narrowness” of the statement, that it lacked “context.”  Ummmmmmmmmmmm … and all those Planned Parenthood apologists, (including journalists who should know better) who keep saying Planned Parenthood does mammograms? ::coughcough::
