The Fake News of Fact-Checkers

One of the tactics used by the fact-checking variety of fake news organizations is a very carefully chosen choice of "facts" to check. Case in point: the claim that Biden gave a eulogy for a KKK "Grand Wizard". He didn't. The KKK official was an "exalted cyclops" instead.

But most people won't read beyond the headline that the fact check said it was false, and platforms like facebook will show only the headline verdict when they slap the fact-check label on the story.
