    Well done. That delusional, willfully-ignorant lunatic was deserving of a special report.

  2. You asshiles are total frauds and leftsust scum
    fuck you

  3. Why is each claim false? You have given no information to refute the claims.

  4. To those who claim MBFC is leftist, chew on this:

    Please click the links for the fact checks. We are simply directing you to them.

  6. Wow. I am impressed. Everything is stated to be false without a shred of supporting evidence. No shock really with MBFC showing its true side

  7. Mediabiasfactcheck, all that I see here is you saying false false false I thought I was going to see proof positive about something. You have not shown anything other than your opinion as fare as I can see. GOOD GOD will we ever see honest trustworthy statements from any one? What has happened to our country.

  8. Soon My Pillow will be called Dominion Pillow after the lawsuit.

    Adding to William’s comment, there are many sources deemed leftist by MediaBiasFactCheck which they also assess as being questionable. Some examples I found fairly quickly:


    There are also sources they deem right-leaning and have good ratings on factual accuracy, for example:


    It would sure be nice if more people used thought, rather than knee-jerk reactions and gut feelings, to determine truth and accuracy.

  10. Richard Babylon | February 9, 2021 at 5:55 pm |

    William, that’s right, and there are plenty more examples refuting the notion MBFC is left-biased. I posted some of them and my comment is awaiting moderation, but it shows many left-leaning sources they found to be “questionable,” as well as sources on the right they found mostly or highly factual. But that won’t likely change the minds of people like “Anonymous” there, who coined the word “asshiles.” It makes me wonder why they’re even here! If they found this page through a search, their goal apparently wasn’t to learn something about Mike Lindell — otherwise they’d consider what they read before shooting it down. Their goal was just to find support for their preconceived notions.

  11. Your website should be called gaslight.com

  12. I am astounded at the number of posters here who do not have the intelligence to see that MBFC is linking to other fact-checking sites for the false ratings, even AFTER MBFC commented in this thread (unnecessarily for anyone with any sense) to do exactly that. If you wish to see the details of the specific claim, then simply click the link. It isn’t rocket science.

  13. Richard Babylon | November 4, 2022 at 3:54 am |

    Exactly, Jeff B., and yeah, intelligence may be a factor. Confirmation bias, willful ignorance, and/or stubborn self-delusion almost certainly are.

    Full disclosure: I’ve encountered plenty of people across the political spectrum who swallow assertions wholesale when it’s something they want to believe, from ultra-liberals to ultra-conservatives. But it seems especially common among Trump supporters.

    That makes sense, since he himself is astonishingly ignorant, frightfully delusional, and believes anything he hears if it makes him feel good.

    I can readily admit there’s a lot I don’t know, and that’s what I like about a site like this, which openly shows — for anyone who really cares about information and facts — how they determine the bias and reliability of a source. It’s right there to read, in the top menus, under “methodology!”

    But people who jump to those conclusions like those above, about “fraud” and bias, can’t be bothered to read. That’s why they’re so ignorant. Their anger and fears tell them all they need to “know.”

    They didn’t come here for information. If they had, they’d obviously consider the information rather than just vomit objections to it. They came here to find support for their beliefs so they could use that to bash someone else in an argument. They got mad when they didn’t find it, ASSUMED bias, cussed about it, and left.

    They don’t really care about truth, they only pretend to. Or some might even believe they care, but they still object instead of read when they encounter something they don’t like.

    They demand evidence for anything they don’t like, ignore it when it’s presented, yet hypocritically swallow wholesale any BS that spills from Trump’s mouth without the slightest evidence. All he has to do is say it, and it’s accepted as fact. But for everyone else they suddenly have higher standards.

    They’re not reading this either. This is WAY too long. It requires thought. It requires time and effort. They just want to yell and argue and point fingers and call names. That’s much easier.
