social network for conservatives
In his book 1984, George Orwell wrote about the "Ministry of Truth" in Oceania that employed Newspeak in order to establish a form of mind control that could control the masses. The rationale was, control the language, and therefore, to a large degree, control thought. Indeed, liberals have attempted to accomplish that very thing with the website factcheck.org. Their website states, "We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit “consumer advocate” for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics." At face value, some people might be inclined to believe that this is a credible mission statement. However, a closer look reveals that FactCheck.org is operated by Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, where the ratio of professors who vote Democrat to those who vote Republican is a whopping TWELVE to ONE .

Also one of the chief funders is the Flora Family Foundation, which is notorious for funding traditional liberal non-governmental organizations and political action groups such as Planned Parenthood, The Tides Center, and the American Resources Defense Council. Funding also comes from the endowment created by philanphropist Walter Annenberg. According to Tiffany Gabbay at TheBlaze.com, from 1994-2002, Barack Obama and unrepentant Weatherman Underground terrorist Bill Ayers sat together on the same board of directors for the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), an education-focused organization Ayers himself had helped found. Gabbay reports through research done by author and columnist Stanley Kurtz, that CAC happily allocated funds to “various far-left community organizers,” including the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Through the organizations ”City Kids, City Teachers” and “Teaching the Personal and the Political,” Ayers unabashedly admitted that teachers should become community organizers When one indeed takes the time to FOLLOW THE MONEY, it's quite clear that FactCheck.org is nowhere close to being an objective, non-partisan fact check site.
