What's Hard Right Alt Right?

My sources have something to say (Who's Who of whatever media or not), and the Leftist sources have something to say. Are you trying to insinuate that if a source is Leftist it's reliable but if it's not Leftist it's not reliable?

What I am saying is that Tucker Carlson, spawn of Bannon and the ilk saying Snopes isn't reliable makes me like it more.

Of course they don't like it because the right puts out way more fake news than the left so they use that as saying it isn't reliable.

It's like that other story claiming some different fact checking site was biased because they called more right wingers liars. Well, right wingers lie more. It's that simple.

Snopes isn't reliable. It has been very inaccurate. (Particularly on it's fact checking of Obamacare it was totally off the wall).

Well, DUH, R. One of the Snopes owners is.....a.....CANADIAN! What more do you need to know??
Besides, all those fact check sites are liberal. You know that. They are all Democrats! Every. Single. One.

Snoopes has been proven to be biased and lie by omission. But hey if the people who their dishonesty affects are also those who are reporting on said dishonesty then of course they cannot be trusted. Sheesh.

Why it matters: After President Trump called Sen. Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" at an event honoring Navajo Code Talkers, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended him saying, ""I think what most people find offensive is Elizabeth Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career."

its an interesting strategy: "dont trust her, she is nearly as dishonest as i am!"
