We constantly are tickled by the media’s left-leaning antics in putting their favorite candidate’s best foot forward.
Take, for instance, a piece that appeared on KTUU headlined, “Fact Checker: Alyse Galvin ‘isn’t a liberal’ campaign ad.” Galvin is running to unseat Congressman Don Young.
The campaign ad in question, paid for by the Alyse for Alaska campaign, says through a grandfatherly man, “Don’t believe anyone who says she’s a liberal.”
So, is she?
“Alaska News Source’s Fact Checker cannot necessarily fact check if Galvin is a liberal or not, as many people will have a different opinion on what constitutes a liberal, but Fact Checker can evaluate claims to evidence of what Galvin has previously stated,” the story says.
In the past, Fact Checker noted, she has said she will stand up to the national Democrats on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, protect gun rights, strengthen our military, balance the budget and oppose higher taxes on working Alaskans.
“Fact Checker rates this generally true, based on Galvin’s positions and statements throughout her present-day and 2018 campaigns,” the story says.
Really? That’s it? So, if Galvin says all that is true, it is “generally true,” the Fact Checker says. That, despite Galvin being the Democratic Party nominee, taking truckloads of money from Democrats and getting lots of love from liberals such as Nancy Pelosi. That, despite her giving money to a long list of hard-Left liberals, such Ethan Berkowitz, Byron Mallott, Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton.
This is her second run against Young. The first time she ran against him, in 2018, she ran as a Democrat. This time she is masquerading as an independent. She has received campaign backing from the New Democrat Coalition Action Fund, Nancy Pelosi for Congress, Committee for a Democratic Future, Democrats Reshaping America, Elect Democratic Women, End Citizens United and Schiff for Congress, FEC records show.
They must believe her a liberal, “fact-check” or not. The rest of us do, too.
