FactCheck flubs

FactCheck.org yesterday released an article taking on the National Rifle Associations recent Anti-Obama ads. I've mentioned before that FactCheck.org is still a media animal and still has biases common to the mainstream media. (Read: Liberal.)

To say that FactCheck.org screwed up big time is an understatement. Patterico, Dave Kopel and Bob Owens all shred FactCheck's spin.

Patterico summarizes:

FactCheck ridicules the NRA in this piece. But the NRA is careful to say: look at Obama’s record and not his rhetoric. And at least two of the NRA claims are backed up by references to Obama’s record. Yet FactCheck.org goes on to minimize or completely ignore Obama’s record on these points, choosing instead to concentrate on citations to Obama’s later campaign rhetoric.

Stuart Taylor was right.
