The Babylon Bee has competitors. The Bee is known for having its satirical posts “fact-checked,” and has even been banned from Twitter every so often. Right here, it’s the Related Press that brings its large fact-checking weapons to bear on a joke, this time not from the Bee:
Shinzo Abe, the previous prime minister of Japan who was assassinated on Friday, didn’t tweet about Hillary Clinton the day earlier than he died. A screenshot purporting to point out such a tweet was fabricated. https://t.co/eNObjpxxdT

That is the joke tweet. Not in the very best of style, maybe, however clearly not supposed to be taken critically:
Now that the AP is in a fact-checking groove, possibly it could possibly look into Joe Biden’s denial that he has any curiosity in, or data of, Hunter’s enterprise transactions (none of which might exist with out “the Large Man”). Or, if the AP needed to assume large, it might even fact-check the Washington Submit, New York Occasions and CNN tales in regards to the Russia collusion hoax. Or, if we restrict ourselves to this week’s information tales, the AP might look into this one.
Bizarre how the fact-checkers by no means appear to look into the tales that liberals truly imagine.
