Media Bias: NBC News ‘Fact Check’ Declares False That Hillary ‘Acid Washed’ Her Server
Fact-checkers are routinely derided and accused of bias for selectively choosing what to check and taking candidate’s comments out of context. During the second presidential debate, one fact-checker organization chose to fact check Donald Trump’s claim that Hillary Clinton “acid washed or bleached” her emails, finding the claim false because “she did not use a corrosive chemical” in wiping clean her server.
FACT CHECK: Trump says Clinton “acid washed” her email server. She did not.
