The Washington Post’s “fact checker” Glenn Kessler is throwing up his hands at compiling Biden’s dubious claims beyond the 100-day honeymoon period.
“Here’s the Biden database — which we do not plan to extend beyond 100 days,” Kessler tweeted. “I have learned my lesson.”
“Maintaining the Trump database over four years required about 400 additional 8-hour days over four years beyond our regular jobs for three people,” Kessler continued. “Biden is off to a relatively slow start but who knows what will happen. We will keep doing fact checks, just not a database.”
Kessler is thus throwing in the towel on maintaining a presidential database due to a supposed lack of content, meanwhile claiming that the workload is demanding.
WaPo is not the only one slacking on its fact-checking duties due to the new administration being a Democratic one. Politifact has a grand total of two fact checks so far on Biden:
- “If we kept (the minimum wage) indexed to inflation, people would be making $20 an hour right now.” (Politifact: False)
- “We’re sending back the vast majority of the families that are coming.” (Politifact: False)
