  1. You need to fact check the reliability and political leanings of your so-called “fact checkers” before you use them as your source to make your claims. Their credibility is questionable at best so relying on them compromises your credibility. Calling yourself a “fact checker” does not automatically make your information factual or reliable. Fact checkers are typically inherently biased so you need to require them to back their “fact checking” with provable and verifiable evidence. Most of your posted disputed claims are from the right which shows your obvious bias. Shame on you.
