If anyone was wondering, the groups are Politifact, Snopes, ABC, and FactCheck.org. They apparently plan to add more groups to help them.

As cited by Rolf Yungclas (Canada Free Press, October 3, 2016), back in June, The Daily Caller pointed out the left-wing bias of Snopes: “Snopes’ ‘fact-checking’ looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton.” In an article entitled “Fact-Checking Snopes: Website’s Political ‘Fact-Checker’ Is Just A Failed Liberal Blogger,” the article had this to say about one of Snopes’ writers, Kim Lacapria: “Before writing for Snopes, Lacapria wrote for Inquisitr, a blog that—oddly enough—is known for publishing fake quotes and even downright hoaxes as much as anything else… While at Inquisitr, the future ‘fact-checker’ consistently displayed clear partisanship.”

Politifact
Politifact is actually nothing more than a thinly disguised leftist organization, supported by mainstream publications, which are generally “in the tank” for the Democrats, as well as such ultra-liberals as the founders of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It's a few groups including the Bill Gates foundation, Google, and the founder of ebay. Conservatives can be ridiculous crybabies sometimes 😂

I like how one of the most charitable people on the planet is consistently used as a litmus for evil by the right.

In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws.

So you want someone in federal prison for speaking their mind. Gotcha.

@Ij: I wonder if he will ever be charged with sedition?
@Mal: should be.
I then provided a definition of sedition.
The key words here are "charged with".
That means a trial to see if he is guilty of sedition. Soros' alleged actions, not just words would be what would convict him, assuming there is an investigation yielding enough evidence to "charge" him with in the first place.

Soros didn't just " speak his mind", he has actively fomented unrest against the US.

Laughable. The man has done more for the world in a month than either of you will ever do in your entire lives.

Most of his family was killed during the holocaust. The right is disgusting for trying to say he had something to do with it.

Post all the fake news you want. I know for a fact you've never raised billions for schools, water for Africans, mosquito nets, feeding the poor... There are only a handful of people in human history that have raised more money to help humanity. Soros's only crime is simply being a liberal.

Btw, read the article. Literally calls him evil for being a rich liberal.

Fake News LOL
You cannot possibly state for a fact anything about me.
I will grant you that Soros has done charitable things. But he also has done harmful and disruptive things whether you stick your head in the sand or not.

It's an op ed piece. Furthermore, there's nothing shameful done that's been pointed out in this article unless you're a political hack with no respect for the constitution. Raising money for liberal causes is a constitutional right.

I can send a lot more but it will not matter. You will just call it fake news. You have drunk the Soros Kool-Aid.
Good Luck to you.

Seriously? Is this "fake news" because if it's real, apparently Facebook is on a suicide mission. That gets out and it's true, I predict 30% of its user base says buh-bye.

Doris is about as far away from impartial as you can get. He'll turn the fact check into a one sided media arm. Hey- just like most media organizations are now anyway!

Probably but that doesn't make them wrong.
They are no less credible than NY Times, Washington Post, CNN or MSNBC
The whole "fake news" fiasco is another attempt at shutting down free speech, particularly conservative speech.
