Earlier this year, PolitiFact verified Collins’ version of the tale.
“Seamus was strapped to the roof of the family car, but in a carrier with a protective windscreen,” they wrote. “We rate Collins’ statement Mostly True.”
It’s odd, I think, that they’re using PolitiFact to confirm the truth of the story considering C&L has been up in arms with PolitiFact’s lie of the year for most of a week.
And then I get to the previous post:
Thursday, Politifact Editor Bill Adair probably ruined his outlet’s chances of ever being taken seriously again as an objective debunker of political spin.
Seriously? Can someone from C&L please explain why their partisan hackery is OK – but it’s OUTRAGEOUS when the Right plays like that?
