Where to Watch the Debate… Fact Checked

by Jessie Hellmann | The Hill  |  published on September 26, 2016

Bloomberg will be the only TV network to display on-screen fact checks of statements made by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton during the first presidential debate Monday, Politico reports.

According to Politico, none of the major networks has publicly committed to on-screen fact checking during the debate and will leave that to post-debate analysis.

The Clinton campaign has called for the media to aggressively fact check the Republican presidential nominee.

    Who’s going to fact check the Bloomberg fact checkers??? Bloomberg is so anti Trump and heads up Hillary’s butt people that Trump will be persecuted for telling the truth.

  • Chris Rasmussen

    Trump stated outright that he objects to being fact-checked in the debate. Since his campaign claims of 2015 proved to be 52% flat out lies (Politifact) and 32% mostly false or only half-true, Trump has good reason to fear fact-checking.

    Of course, his supporters don’t want to be bothered by pesky facts. It doesn’t bother them in the least that his recent statement about the NFL writing him with concern about the debate schedule was entirely horse-pucky, as the NFL had not contacted him at all. It further doesn’t bother his supporters that until 19 months ago Trump supported a woman’s choice for abortion, favored an assault weapons ban and extending the waiting period for firearms purchase. They’re not bothered by the hypocrisy of Trump’s blasting Clinton over her over holding *precisely* the same views and claiming Clinton wants to “steal your guns”… only to now be the *only* candidate ever, himself, to call for police to confiscate more guns. Trump supporters are very forgiving, allowing that one should be free to change their mind, no matter how suspicious the timing. They also hold that telling the truth is only a standard Democrats must meet, as Trump’s lies are… well, just Trump being Trump.

    After cringing at Trump’s performance on NBC’s “Commander in Chief Forum,” wherein he demonstrated almost no knowledge of government workings and none whatsoever of international policy, I’m looking forward to tonight’s Trump fiasco. It should be a hoot!

      Trump is a manager. He can hire all the experts he needs. Hillary couldn’t manage 4 men in a Consulate.

    The fact check is Hilery’s buddies.

    The only liar will be Hitlery. Whatever she says she will mean just the opposite. She is the biggest liar anyone has ever met in the world. Like they say,” you can take that to the bank”

    Most fact checkers are leftist goons but why are so many people even far left loons so concerned about Ivanka Trump pushing her line of products its one of her own companies that is flourishing. she isnt running for any office and if she was this is irrelevant.

  • M. D’Souza

    Fact checking is needed if we’ve a candidate like John Kerry, who rattled out numbers during his debate with Pres. Bush; or if we have debate moderator like Candy Crowley, who was herself not aware of the facts.

      I think she was aware of the facts. That whole thing was a setup, and she was a willing participant.

  • BlessedtoServe

    fact checkers are in Hil Liar y’s pants suit….really, you see them scrambling all about…

  • ONLYJB1

    There’s only one reason hillary would agree to fact checking. Either they have it rigged or clinton actually believes her lies. Her problem is keeping the lies straight.

  • Stephen Howe

    I hope Trump reminds this decrepit old witch of THE FACT that she first raised doubts about BO’s American birth!

    • victoriadelacy

      When you watch the youtube video entitled “Born in Kenya II”, you hear Barrack’s own paternal grandmother, his “Mama Sara” proudly claiming to have been an eye-witness to his birth….there IN MOMBASA, KENYA. There is nothing more compelling in a court of law than eye-witness testimony, and this coming from his own grandmother! He is clearly no American.

      • Gar

        Finally!, the facts are presented with eye witness!

        • Elaine

          The liberals have been poo-pooing that notion since it came out in 2009, and after awhile, those of us who do believe the grandmother, just kind of gave up on it. But, this article is from 2009, and there it is, right there … The TRUTH !!

    Better to fact check the all time champion liar, the Benghazi Bitch herself!

    • ClarenceDeBarrows

      I agree, but the problem usually is the “fact checkers” are in the Clinton camp.
