    Progressive activist site ThinkProgress is screaming like a stuck pig because it got fact-checked on Facebook by The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine. Facebook has arranged for partners in the media across ideologies to serve as fact-checkers for news stories on the website. The fact-checkers stand apart from the partisan fray at the ideologically oriented sites, and The Weekly Standard's fact-checkers are highly regarded.

    On September 9, ThinkProgress ran a story distorting Brett Kavanaugh's views on abortion. Their claims had already been made by California Sen. Kamala Harris, and multiple media outlets had thoroughly debunked the claims. The claims arose from Harris selectively editing a statement Brett Kavanaugh made about Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh was explaining the ruling, and Harris edited a video of his statement to make it sound like Kavanaugh was expressing his own view.

    Fact-checkers from various national news outlets, including The Washington Post, stepped in and not only exposed Harris' lies but also rebuked her for a gross and willful distortion of Kavanaugh's record. Undeterred, ThinkProgress tried to legitimize the same claim. When exposed on Facebook for lying, the progressives who run ThinkProgress were not upset at being exposed. They were upset at Facebook letting a conservative outlet expose them.

    If you want him to overturn Roe v Wade, why are you trying so hard to make it look like he wonít?

    If Roe V Wade is Constitutional, you have nothing to worry about. Amirite?

    R v W is settled stare decisis Constitutional law, 45 years old, but the oligarchy's activist SCOTUS5 whore politicians will unsettle, remove Federal protection for abortion,

    just like they did in C-U.

    For 100 years, corporations weren't people and money was't speech.

    So if SCOTUS allows abortion by state, then we'll have the oligarchy/Repug HATED "patchwork" of laws, because they love patchwork when it suits their activist asses.

    Roe v Wade isn't even the law geniuses. There are other SCOTUS abortion cases which exist too.
