The Dispatch's "Fact-Checker" Falsely Labels a Pro-Life Group's Ad as "Partly False," and then FaceBook Bans the Ad;
The Dispatch's Editors Won't Explain How This "Error" Slipped Past Four Editors

Do you remember -- Steven Hayes also had some kind of FaceBook-affiliated Fact-Checker at the Weekly Standard? Someone who was added late in the game, in the Weekly Standard's End of Days period?

When the Weekly Standard was scrabbling to get higher traffic numbers?

Remember when that guy claimed it was false to say that George Soros helped the Nazis catalogue art looted from Jews, despite the fact that Soros casually admits that in a 60 Minutes interview?

That guy claimed that some biographer "doubted" the story. The story told by George Soros himself. And this biographer's word should be treated as more authorative than... George Soros' word.

I believe that biographer was George Soros' pet, employed to clean up some unsavory bits of Soros' past.

Whatever the case, it was insane to "fact-check" Soros' own account of his Nazi collaboration and deem Soros' own words about his life as "false" because a third party remains unconvinced.

But that is the narrative preferred by the left -- given that Soros funds 80% of leftwing organizations.

And so that became the official Weekly Standard fact-check.

And now once again we have a very leftwing false "fact-check" being published by a Steve Hayes-helmed webzine.

And once again: there seems to be some FaceBook connection, that Steve Hayes doesn't want to talk about.

It's all very obscure -- and I think obscured for a reason.

I don't think The Dispatch wants to admit what kind of a side-hustle it has going on with FaceBook.

I don't think it wants to explain how a supposedly "True Conservative" webzine wound up defaming and tortiously interfering with the work of a pro-life group in order to brand it as "partly false" so that FaceBook can then reject the ad.

Facebook censored two advertisements from the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List's, claiming the videos contained "partly false information" about Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden and VP Nominee Kamala Harris’s views on late-term abortions.

The ads, which focus on the Democratic Party's position in support of abortion on demand and up until the moment of birth, were labeled by "independent fact-checkers" who claim to "look carefully into claims from elected officials, reports from the media, and disinformation on social media to help you understand what’s true and what’s not."

The "independent fact-checker," was NeverTrump website, The Dispatch, which labeled the ads as "partly false" because Biden has not explicitly stated that he supports late-term abortions, even though he has repeatedly said he wants no restrictions on "a woman's right" to choose.

"Biden has not expressed support for late-term abortions--which, while not being a medical term, generally refers to abortions performed at 21 weeks or later. And neither candidate has voiced for support for abortion 'up to the moment of birth,'" the fact-check reads.

So Biden can keep saying he opposes any and all restrictions but as long as he avoids saying he supports partial birth abortion -- which he does, or otherwise he'd support some restrictions -- then the leftwing will conduct fraudulent "fact checks" and ban any ads mentioning his support of partial birth abortion.

Publications managed by Steve Hayes have a very strange history of providing left-leaning "fact-checks" which are then seized upon by FaceBook for purposes of suppressing conservative stories and advertisements.

Why is that?

Where is he getting these fact-checkers from?

Does he have an undisclosed partnership with FaceBook regarding these "fact" checkers?

Steve Hayes needs to answer questions about who this "fact-checker" is and if this "fact-checker" is part of the same program that produced the Weekly Standard's "fact-checker," and if this person is paid, either partly or in whole, by FaceBook.

And if FaceBook is providing non-monetary compensation to be part of this program, like giving The Dispatch a sneaky little push out to readers by jiggering around with FaceBook's algorithm.

Hayes needs to clarify exactly how much money, if any, he's getting from FaceBook and why he's not being straight with his other donors -- his non-Tech Monopolist donors, his private individual donors-- about his dealings with FaceBook.
