Biden’s Unemployment Disaster

May 3, 2021

Biden's Unemployment Disaster

“In an employment trend that industry leaders are calling ‘dire,’ thousands of Presidential fact checkers have been laid off during Joe Biden’s first hundred days in office.

Harland Dorrinson, the executive director of the American Society of Presidential Fact Checkers, said that Biden has single-handedly destroyed the employment picture for many of the group’s members.

‘Over the past three months, America’s Presidential-falsehood infrastructure has all but collapsed,’ Dorrinson said. ‘We have not experienced such a devastating downturn since Richard M. Nixon left office, in 1974.’”

— “Thousands of Presidential Fact Checkers Laid Off in Biden’s First Hundred Days,” Andy Borowitz, The New Yorker

But serously, folks:

“What it’s been like fact-checking Joe Biden through 100 days,” Daniel Dale, CNN
