The Accredited Times Introduces A Fact Checking System

With independent fact checking organizations like Politifact drowning under the tidal wave of lies and fake news emanating from the Trump administration and the alt right, I felt it was our duty to do our part in exposing these right wing lies. The Accredited Times’ brand new fact checking system allows anyone to fact-check a statement using the hashtag #fact-check.

Just enter this hashtag, followed by the following information separated by bars, as follows:

<Person’s Name> | <Statement> | <true/mostly-true/half-true/mostly-false/false/total-lie> | <Comment>

Refresh the page, and you will see a very convincing truth-o-meter based on the truth value you entered. For example, the following comment fact-checks one of Donald Trump’s recent statements:

#fact-check
Donald Trump |
The American people don’t care about my tax returns |
total-lie |
Actually, numerous accredited polls indicate that Trump’s tax returns are of great interest to the American people, and many people view his unwillingness to release them as suspicious, and cause for further investigation.

You can see the result of this statement in the comments section below.

It’s time to fact-check the hell of out of Trump and the alt-right, and make an effort to keep them on the back foot. If we can’t stop Trump from being president, we can at least attempt to tie his hands by constantly bombarding him with criticism and holding him accountable for his many inaccurate statements. Let the fact-checking begin.

Donald Trump | had a golden shower | true | Although some people still doubt this story and claim it is “unverified”, and anonymous official speaking under condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of this topic has just confirmed that it is unfortunately true

The US | is winning the war on terror | half-true | While the US interventions/deployments in Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria,etc.. were great sucesses, terrorist groups have often emerged months after in the same countries for some mysterious reasons, even if they weren’t there initially in many cases. There are growing suspicions that Russia supplies them with US sophsticated weapons. Deploying more US troops, limiting more our liberties and increasing the budget of the CIA is thus a necessary step to fight this scourge and win over the next 100 years

It works well for me, I had some difficulty to understand the system since they didn’t explain us anything about computer’s logic/syntax in my critical race theory or sociology courses but my twin brother who has some interest for those pseudo-scientifc “discplines” ( he is the white sheep of the family) did it for me.

Houston, is a problem! Now that ATs fact checker is far out in the public domain for all to steal, ain’t nothing to stop it being turned against us progressives. Today we celebrate Martin Luther Day, most easy target of alt-right. Please MDB technical team use authentication/encrypton or some such device, to protect community against out-right mud-slingers. Otherwise they gonna have a field day!

I think that for the moment it uses a technology called progressive lightening to strike down the offenders and transform them into McNuggets
